Please consider signing the hunger petition by the United Nations FAO (Food and Agricultural Organization), which they will show to government delegates at their big Food Security conference next week 16-18 November 2009.

The director of FAO is also calling for people to hunger strike, i.e., fast for 1 day this weekend (Saturday or Sunday) as a sign of compassion for the 1,000,000,000 people who are hungry right now.
One speaker I heard recently said: Today’s 1 billion hungry is the greatest calamity ever in human history! It bears reflecting upon.
