Food for Thought, Thought for Action!

​ចូរយើងនាំគ្នាបញ្ឈប់វិបត្តិម្ហូបអាហារ Let’s stop the food crisis

I just signed a petition urging world leaders to tackle the food crisis now gripping the world. This is important and I thought you might like to sign it too:

Have you noticed food costing more when you shop? Here’s why — we’re plunging headlong into a world food crisis. Rocketing prices are squeezing billions and triggering food riotsIn Sierra Leone alone the price of a bag of rice has doubled, now unaffordable for 90% of citizens. Fears of inflation stalk the whole world, and the worst could be yet to come.

We need to act now — before it’s too late. So we’re launching an urgent campaign with African foreign minister and human rights campaigner Zainab Bangura. Click below to see Zainab’s video message and add your name to the food crisis petition — we need to raise 200,000 signatures by the end of this week to deliver a massive global outcry to leaders at the UN, G8 and EU:

One thought on “​ចូរយើងនាំគ្នាបញ្ឈប់វិបត្តិម្ហូបអាហារ Let’s stop the food crisis

  1. Dear Chanroeun

    Thanks for your kind heart to support the compaign for the poor, and your kind heart telling me about that compaign. I have a great willing to do that too, but one thing that i notice from the problem of food crisis now is not only the problems of the G8, but also the problems of those poor countries themselves. I do not say in the favor of anybody. From what I read everyday from the Bangkok post about the world news, i found some facinating factors that contributed to ever-increasing food price.

    The first thing is the global warming, which change the world environment and could not allow the crops grown in the places where they used to be grown or could not provide enough waters (or too much water) as usual as it did.

    The second thing is the urbanisation in each of the developing countries who are the main supplying sources for foods. This thing is clearer when you look in our country or even in Philiphines. Urbanisation tries to push the food-producers (farmers so on and so forth) to sell their land with the high price, and then stop producing any food. And the food become more and more expensive, when all these main suppliers could not produce for the export or even for bringing up their own people. Philliphines, China, vietnam, India, maybe Cambodia or in the near future, thailand (Thailand now is the the exporter of 1/3 of the total rice to the world) will stop exporting their rice.

    i do not think who should be blamed aside from the bad planned and bad organised governments of the world ( i mean the the absent of the good governance). These are the factors that i take into my account, and i feel that it is abit help to push the World Bang or all the world leaders to help, profit from these food are not the collective decision anymore, but the individual. Moreover, food shortage are not like the other problems. food can not be replaced by anything else, and even it can reproduce, but not all the time we need. we have to wait for the right season and the attentive care. And even world bank or UN try to put money inside that, where can they buy the food? yes now they focus on thailand, but haahhaaa, i now complain in Bangkok too, rice price is very hight, and sometime the small tesco or seven elevent does not sell the rice. I sometime change to eat the noodle,. hahah

    This is why some scholars try to criticise some governments that focuse on the unreal development such as real estate, but not the food or the daily neccesories. what is the point to focus on the real estates when your countries are in the condition of food shortage. even it goes up and up, with that money you can not buy any food when they are shortag. Then you will be in the crisis, esecially the social instability. I have a small knowledge about economic nass, i just learn those thing from Bangkok post, so please forgive me if i am wrong. and i am happy to see your comments.
