>Charity or Solidarity? — A Quote from Eduardo Galeano

>

“I don't believe in charity.
I believe in solidarity.
Charity is vertical, so it’s humiliating.
It goes from the top to the bottom.
Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other and learns from the other.
I have a lot to learn from other people.”

-Eduardo Galeano.
