Last week we told you about the ‘Spot the George’ event for the Enough Food IF campaign. This week we tell you what the campaign is all about!
It’s unfair, it’s unjust and it’s totally preventable.
That’s why nearly 100 leading charities, including CAFOD, want to make 2013 the beginning of the end of the global hunger crisis.
IF we all get together, we can make world leaders change the future by tackling four big IFs:
- TRANSPARENCY IF we force governments and big corporations to be honest and open about the deals they make in the poorest countries that stop people getting enough food.
- AID IF governments keep their promises on aid, invest to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest people feed themselves through investment in small farmers.
- LAND IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land, and use crops to feed people not fuel cars
- TAX IF governments stop big companies dodging taxes in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger.
We can press our leaders to make these big IFs happen, and IF they do, there really will be enough food for everyone.
We’ll be asking people to petition the Prime Minister to use his presidency of the G8 summit to take a lead on combating hunger.
