Niger...

Again the world is watching as a nation starves!!!

150,000 children on the brink of death by starvation!!!...

A further 650,000 severly mal-nourished!!!

Niger, a whole famine-torn country of some 12 million souls!!!

'FUCKING WISE UP!!!'

That's what I'm saying. I'm sorry if I offend, but the time is past for niceties! They haven't worked anyway :(

I'm sickened that for more than 8 months aid agencies have been begging the rich nations for food for these people!!!

8 months!!!

C'mon, feed them. It's not hard.

We have more than enough.

We have obscene amounts of food wastage in our fat nations.

Just give it to them.

It's a drop in the world's ocean of wealth and would say so much about us as a truly global community if we put a stop to this NOW!!!

Whoever you are and whatever you do, please don't let them starve:(

I'm not rich or can give much in monetry value but I can scream this from and at wherever and whoever!!!

Do something, don't let this happen!
