Rising Food Prices Pushing East Africa to Disaster, Warns Oxfam

For The Guardian UK, Xan Rice reports: "More than 14 million people in the east Africa region require urgent food aid due to drought and spiralling cereal and fuel prices, aid agencies say. In an emergency appeal launched today, Oxfam warns that millions of people in Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda, Djibouti and Kenya are fast being pushed 'towards severe hunger and destitution.' Earlier this week the UN said it needed £200m to avert a humanitarian disaster."

Let Them Eat Free Markets

David Moberg writes for In These Times on how deregulation is fueling the world food crisis: "In April, crowds of angry Haitians - reduced to eating mud cakes to staunch hunger - erupted in deadly protests against high food prices, forcing the prime minister to resign. The price of rice, a staple of the Haitian diet, had risen 16 percent on the world market last year, then shot up 141 percent from January to April. Around the world, similar riots - or fears of them - have pushed governments to restrict exports, reduce tariffs, attack hoarding and take other desperate measures as prices of virtually all major food commodities have spiked - and often fluctuated wildly."
