‘Gaza crisis quickly becoming desperate’ – Oxfam (RT, July 15, 2014):

Medical supplies and fuel are in a very short supply in Gaza, the water infrastructure has been very badly damaged, some types of food are becoming scarce and prices have doubled, Alan McDonald from Oxfam International told RT.

RT: Oxfam has called for an immediate ceasefire in the region. What are your concerns for the people of Gaza?

Alan McDonald: The conflict has been going on for a week now, each day seems to get worse. When I talked to my colleagues in Gaza and people there, everybody is terrified of what is going to happen. We are seeing enormous civilian casualties; about 80 percent of the people killed so far have been civilians. We are also seeing a lot of damage to infrastructure, water system, sewage plants, and health centers. One of our partners who run a health center in Gaza had it battle-damaged by an airstrike. We work with quite a few hospitals which are struggling to cope with all the casualties and also the shortages of fuel and medicine in Gaza. The situation and the humanitarian crisis on the ground is really getting worse, it’s becoming quite desperate.

Hunger Is Man-Made

Jun 5 — This week Oxfam launched Grow, its most ambitious campaign.

We published research which warned that the average price of key foods such as maize, wheat and rice will more than double in the next 20 years, forcing millions into chronic hunger. There are already more than 900 million people who do not have enough to eat.

This is a man-made disaster: the result of an international food system which creates huge profits for a few while leaving millions hungry. Three US companies – Archer Daniels Midland, Bunge and Cargill – control nearly 90% of the world’s grain trade. In the first quarter of 2008, at the height of a global food price crisis, Cargill’s profits were up 86%, and the company is now heading for its most profitable year yet.
