West African States Emergency Meeting on Urgence of Food Crisis

Highlighting how serious the food crisis is, and the potential for revolt against the globalization maniacs, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) held an emergency meeting of the ECOWAS Ministers of Agriculture, Trade, and Finance yesterday in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, in an effort to come up with a comprehensive regional response to the food crisis, which has led to demonstrations and unrest in several West African nations. Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas, president of the ECOWAS commission, called for urgent action to deal with the crisis, because the peace, security, and stability, was threatened by the high cost and shortage of food, which will necessitate throwing IMF and World Bank dictates overboard. One member of ECOWAS, before the summit, explicitly blamed the IMF and World Bank for the inability of the ECOWAS states to produce enough food. ECOWAS indicated that the 44.4 million of West Africa's people living in abject poverty are the most vulnerable group.
