Ethiopian Famine by Stan Grossfeld, Boston Globe

"Bin Laden is dead, but the world is still governed by bin Ladens. People cheer because they thought they saw justice, but this was not justice delivered by victims. This was one killer killing another, a big killer, the United State, killing another one, actually a smaller one." says Allan Nairn. "I think we need an American uprising, if we're to put a stop to this kind of killing of innocent people. And we need an American Romero, someone like Archbishop Romero of Salvador
who told soldiers to disobey orders to kill, because there is a higher principle.

In a world managed by our private investment finance capital speculators millions: 30 million people die of malnutrition or sanitation related causes every year, more than half of them children.

the world's richest 225 people had combined assets equal to the combined annual income of the world's 2.5 billion poorest people."

Forbes magazine has estimated that "225 individuals, the richest in the world, have a combined wealth of more than $1 trillion, a figure that approaches the combined annual income of the poorest one half of humanity.

The assets of the three richest individuals exceed the combined annual economic output of forty-eight poor countries!"

Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger

It is estimated that some 800 million people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition, about 100 times as many as those who actually die from it each year.
