To Defeat Famine: Kill the WTO  

by Marcia Merry Baker

The author gives an accounting of the crimes of the World Trade Organization era, and of actions by agencies and figures leading up to its formation in 1995. The conditions for today’s vulnerability of millions of people to hunger and famine, were masterminded by networks with the intent to subvert nations and cause depopulation. The capstone of the whole downgrading process was the biofuels craze, with Al Gore as the top biofool, campaigning to “save the planet.” Don’t play the game. Bury the WTO!
