Of the famine In Ethiopia, where the weather has been so dry that crops fall,
Where the people are so hungry they have to walk many miles to the nearest
Relief station where there might be food If proplr have been generous.
In any one station at least 40 people a day die. totally shriveled.
They haven't the energy to brush away the flies that are waiting for THEIR
Meal. These poeple are the victims of our western governments. In Britain
Alone there are massive great food stores where surplus grain sits, In the
EEC there are food mountains, In Amrerica farmers are paid to destroy part of
Their harvest, while big corporations plunder the 3rd world countries at the
Expense of the natives. Why Is this - economics, the science of greed. that
Which says people must pay western prices for their food. Natural starving
Countries can't afford this especially when their government takes the best
FIrst. The western government have plenty of money. They tax us on our
Income, then they tax us on what we buy. They take the money we have worked

Many birds In North America migrate to these forests, on arriving and finding
No forest they die. The drop In population of birds means~more insects and
The Americans only answer to this is pesticide. We all know about factories

That will never heal. Innocent people who had done nothing, whose life is not
Easy anyway, and why? So America can steal food from the starving millions.
Nearly all big bussiness, is based on explanation of the worst kinds.
Cosmetic companies use dead animals to make their products, then poison many
More by feeding it to them with the end result of encouraging sexism by
Convincing men and women to look the same as each other. Advertising promotes
This and advertising of any kind usually portrays women as a sex object only,
There to be raped. Drug companies (like Roche & ICI) claim to Invent new
Drugs to cure Imagined diseases. Thousands die ~t the hands of their useless
Research. They try to make drugs to cure heart disease which was originally
Caused by the sufferer eating meat and dairy products to excess.
Booker McConnell own everything from butchers to health shops, as long as
The cash rolls in who cares? Other companies who make machinery ~ domestic
Appliances (like Thorn EMI.) also makes defense gadgetry. British Aerospace
Specialize In fighters in favour of passenger jets. Governments pay more for
Weaponry that domestic consumers pay for domestic items. That's why many many
Comapnies world wide clamour for defense orders, some would go bankrupt
Without them. The final Industry, uranium mining, sponsored in Britain by RTZ
Plunders the landscape, kills the wildlife,exploits the natives and gives them
