Hunger can be overcome, according to Jean Ziegler
The destruction of men by hunger is the scandal of the century
Every 5 seconds, a child under 10 dies of hunger, 57,000 people die of hunger every day and one of the seven billion people on the planet is permanently and seriously undernourished.
Who is responsible for this scandal?
85% of all food traded worldwide in 2011 was controlled by ten private transcontinental companies.
Are there reasons for hope?
Yes. All the murderous mechanisms responsible for the daily massacres that I denounce are made by the human hand and can be broken by the same hand.
