Die Massenvernichtung in der Dritten Welt translated by C. The Mass Destruction in the Third World]. He was a Member of Parliament for many years. His main work relates to causes of underdevelopment and oppression caused by the West and in particular its financial system.
He was an ardent critique of Swiss banking practices long before the debt and financial crisis. He is widely respected particularly in wri French speaking world. He was the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to food and critical in provoking the debate on detrimental practices of commodity trading to the detriment of those in need around the world.
His work, while provocative, helped to shape awareness in important areas of international economic law. Neudecker Translated from German by Susan Welsh.
EIR, November 30,pgs. Jean Ziegler, an advisor to the Verhubgern on food issues, is known for his no-holds-barred representation of reality. His new book about world hunger leaves no doubt where the roots of the problem lie. The Swiss author begins by breaking a taboo: Going against the Zeitgeist, he asserts that there is enough agricultural land on Earth now to feed 12 billion people.
Jean Ziegler: Wir lassen sie verhungern
But lack of technology, waste, wrong-headed ecological insanity, and disregard for the rights of the rural population in the developing world are making the hunger situation worse. Like the plague in the Middle Ages, famine was often considered an inevitable scourge, to halt the growth of population.
Ziegler describes how humanity has freed itself from such fatalism, such as how the horrendous consequences of World War II were overcome. In his view, the situation today can also be solved with enough material, logistical, and financial support, and above all by collective action: But with the increasing cultivation of sugarcane, traditional crops disappeared, such as maize, beans, cassava, and other vegetables. Castro also recognized such effects of the increasing monoculture as malnutrition, hunger, and stunted development of children.
He recorded his experiences in his book Geography of Hungerwhich was translated into many languages and became the practical handbook for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization FAOwhich was founded in Later the book was retitled Geopolitics of Hunger, based on the realization that it is not geography that is key, but the interests of people, politicians, and companies, in the utilization of agricultural areas.
With reference to an FAO report, but mainly to his own experience in traveling around the world, Ziegler uses many examples to show that it is not sufficient to provide food to fight hunger: Sometimes only the very specific addition of minerals, vitamins, etc. He describes a terrible disease called Noma cancrum oriswhich especially affects malnourished young children.

Its cause is the collapse of the immune system. Germs and bacteria easily enter the mouth, where they cause inflammation of the gums, then mount a massive attack on the oral mucosa, and eat holes in the jawbone and the cheeks.
This can lead to immobility of the jawbone and disfigurement of the face. As horrible as the effects of this disease are, it can just as quickly and easily be cured, using antibiotics, a proper diet, and rigorous oral hygiene. The Swiss foundation Winds of Hope says that a cure for one child costs only EU and takes about ten days.
Ziegler shows why, despite increasing food production, it has not yet been possible to eliminate hunger. It is not only the failure of the aid agencies that bothers him—and as Vice President of the Advisory Committee of the UN Human Rights Council, he could give a comprehensive picture of this—but also the control by the food cartels and the politics of biofuels, just to mention some additional factors.
Although food production has increased enormously, along with the increase in population, we have not been able to eliminate the problem of hunger. Nearly a billion people are still suffering from it, and every five seconds a child under ten years of age dies of starvation.
After the collapse of the financial markets, speculators rediscovered the food market as a field for their activity.
Another field of operations for the vehrungern robber barons, he writes, is colonization by the purchase of land by investment companies and countries such as China and Saudi Arabia. These land areas are then often used to produce biofuel, making the hunger crisis even worse. This policy has resulted in an outcry for change, not only in the developing countries, but also in developed countries. That is where Ziegler sees a glimmer of hope: You can find a scan PDF of the original text here: Ziegler — Wir Lassen Sie Verhungern.
