Manifesto for Ending Mass Starvation

Alex de Waal, Executive Director of the World Peace Foundation and well-known author on the causation of famines has described Yemen as “the signal famine crime of our generation”


He has launched a ‘Manifesto for Ending Mass Starvation’

Our ultimate goal is to render mass starvation so morally toxic, that it is universally publicly vilified. We aim to make mass starvation unthinkable, such that political and military leaders in a position to inflict it or fail to prevent it, will unhesitatingly ensure that it does not occur, and the public will demand this of them.
