"We need slaves to build monuments....."

The Guardian's G2 section yesterday had an excellent report on the inequalities that exist in Dubai between those who are financing and occupying the multi-billion pound developments, and those who are creating them.

DUBAI

A quote that almost echoes the construction of the Pyramids: "We need slaves to build monuments"

There is also a photo story that accompanies the piece on the Guardian's WORLD section (click MULTIMEDIA and then PICTURES). Would be very useful for the idea of INEQUALITY and UNEQUAL SPACES.

If you're reading this in Dubai, and would like some quality Geography CPD delivering, please get in touch !
