Photo-journalist Guy Smallman has been documenting the lives of internally displaced Afghan people since 2008. Since that time the number of people living in appalling conditions due to war, poverty and land disputes has risen to 1.2 million.
This exhibition focuses of the children of the displaced who make up well over half of the people living in these conditions. (more…)

But what’s it like to work for an On-Demand service? For scooter drivers and cyclists at Deliveroo “freedom and flexibility” means exploitation and exhaustion.

Three estate agents sacked for taking on anarchists in mass brawl outside Boris Johnson’s home
UPDATED 13 JULY 2016: Boris Johnson accepts the role of Foreign Secretary under the new Theresa May government. Boris, our senior diplomat, the man whole stole our future. Now we really are all fucked. Do we just grin and bear it, or do we grin and fight back?

I’d be gutted!’ (more…)
