the political dimension of our food

“how do we manage to feed 60 billion “farm animals” but not 7.8 billion people?”

The global grain harvest is around 2 billion tons per year.
Over 500,000 are fed to the cattle of the rich nations – while in the 122 countries of the Third World 43,000 children die of hunger every day, according to UN statistics.
The poor countries sell their grain to the West while their own children starve in their arms.
So that we can enjoy our steak

A child who dies of hunger today is murdered.

good night, Venus
