if a million children are 'saved' from starvation today ...
then two million more will starve tomorrow UNLESS the $y$stem is changed.
" A child that dies of starvation today is being murdered. There is no reason for dying. It is the world order that kills. " -- Jean Ziegler, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, in Der Geist des Geldes/The Spirit of Money" (2007)

" Poor people the world over are not dying of starvation, they'e dying of colonialism " -- Derrick Jensen in in "Interview Part 4 - On Population, Collapse and Genocide"

" Charity... any kind of action that relieves people's distress just a little bit without changing the system maintains the system." -- Howard Zinn in Psywar (2010)

We have enough resources to feed the world. It is greed and waste that is killing them. Use our agriculture to feed children, and stop raising and slaughtering animals for food. Every burger you eat spells a death sentence for an animal AND a child.
