Donations for the Notre Dame, where have the world’s richest been hiding?
According to Reuters, after just two days of the disaster of Notre Dame Cathedral, the total of donations for rebuilding was reaching 900 million euros. As a history student, I am not lacking sympathy for the country in this difficult time. They are mourning the loss of a monumental landmark which has defined France and Paris’ history and culture. However, I cannot stand by and witness the praise which those who have donated are receiving for their overly generous donations to the cause when the world faces much more contentious humanitarian and environmental issues.

With Britain so inward looking, it is imperative to have a more international perspective. I urge you with the upcoming election coming up on the 9th of April in Israel, and tensions heightening, to read about the conflict and its discrepancies.
