Talking Heads with Tim Costello

Tim Costello was on Talking Heads ABC1. He was discussing with Peter Thompson his life which included campaigning for the most marginalised people – the poor, the sick and the addicted. Apparenlty he first developed an awareness of injustice when he had to share a room with his brother Peter.

Justice has always been his question, “Why are those who should have more, the world’s poor, locked out?”

How long can we live in our own insular world before we recognise the injustices that take place around this global village of ours? As consumers do we have a responsibility for the products we consume that allow for these injustices to happen. From cocoa to the latest sneakers, can there be a better way?

Here’s the full transcripts of the interview: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/talkingheads/txt/s2593114.htm
