[Thank you, Walden, for writing this – and for carving out the time and attention during these profoundly difficult and challenging times, to do Martin this honour; and to give all of us this loving gift :
Martin Khor : The Making of a Global Activist
In memory and in solidarity and celebration of a life well lived -
