Article 25

About

Article 25 is a street newspaper based in Cincinnati; street papers are non-profit, grassroots newspapers with a distribution model specifically designed  to offer a creative solution to those suffering from unemployment, homelessness, or poverty. Distributors, who are financially struggling, homeless, or formerly homeless individuals or families, go through training and become certified distributors of a street paper. At Article 25, distributors buy the paper at 25 cents per copy – covering productions costs – and then sell the paper for a dollar on the streets and throughout the community of Cincinnati. The 75 cent profit serves as a supplemental income to help people get themselves back on their feet.

  1. All human beings are born with equal and inalienable rights
    and fundamental freedoms.
    The United Nations is committed to upholding, promoting and protecting
    the human rights of every individual. This commitment stems from the
    United Nations Charter, which reaffirms the faith of the peoples of the world in
    fundamental human rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person.
    In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations has stated
    in clear and simple terms the rights which belong equally to every person.
    These rights belong to you.
    They are your rights. Familiarize yourself with them.
    Help to promote and defend them for yourself
    as well as for your fellow human beings.

    This declaration stands in stark contrast to the Neo liberal agenda.
