The High Level Conference on Food Security is looking for a political answer to the severe hunger crisis, which has been manifested in more the 40 food riots over the last three months. It seem however that the FAO Summit will conclude by proposing the same recipes that are partly responsable for the crisis, such as more food aid, more liberalisation and more biotechnology. Important aspects like speculation are completely ignored, while on agrofuels, the draft declaration contains a very specific invitation for “dialogue”. The speakers are: Michael Windfuhr ( Germany), Brot fur die welt. Henry Saragih ( Indonesia) Via Campesina. Greetha Fernando ( SriLanka) Fisherman World Forum.
