Source: The Left “The gap between abundance and need has never been more widely separated than today. While part of the world’s population is constantly enriching, more than one in ten people around the world suffer from hunger. To combat this hunger, we must tackle global injustice. The Federal Government does not fulfill this task “, explains Eva-Maria Schreiber, spokesperson for world food policy of DIE LINKE, on the occasion of the publication of the World Hunger Index 2019 and tomorrow’s World Hunger Day. Schreiber continues: “Climate change, violent conflicts and poverty are the main causes of hunger. The federal government does not tackle these causes. On the contrary, it adopts a climate package, which is a climate warming package, continues to export weapons and soldiers throughout the world instead of pursuing consistent peace policies, and is currently transforming its development ministry into a foreign trade chamber, rather than supporting the poorest countries and most vulnerable populations Special initiative ‘A World without Hunger’, into which about three billion euros have flowed since the inauguration of Development Minister Müller, does not deserve its name. It relies on short-term increases in production and cooperation with major players such as the Gates Foundation or Bayer. A ‘radical change in production and consumption patterns’ as demanded by Welthungerhilfe in the current World Hunger Index looks different. It places the promotion of small farmers, who are also the backbone of our diet in the 21st century, at the center of their thinking and acting. Unfortunately, the federal government is far from it. “
