UN Economic Social Council Calls for Biofuels Halt

Following a May 20-22 special meeting on the global food crisis, the UN Economic and Social Council has called for an end to biofuel production. "We are urging governments to seriously reconsider the policies to produce biofuels, so that food security is not put in danger," the plan presented by president Leo Merores said. But, the crucial role the LaRouche movement must pursue in defining policy was made clear again when the UN ECOSOC also called for the completion of the Doha Round of agreements for the murderous WTO.

Two Indian online news services, domain-b.com and Zee News, report that UNECOSOC has drawn up a 15-point program for addressing the food crisis, which is not yet available.
