Gambling on hunger

Have your say

RECENTLY there have been sharp rises in food prices in the UK and around the world, driving millions of people into poverty and hunger.

One of the reasons for this is that big banks have been speculating on prices in order to make a quick buck.

Bexhill and Hastings World Development Movement group has long been campaigning to curb food speculation. So we are delighted that European legislation to stop banks gambling on hunger has finally been agreed.
