He told me of the present of what Brian Haw witnessed as begun so many years back.
85% of the people are farmers. There are presently huge land disputes between the very poor and big business/the goveernment. I assume it is similiar to china's situation where the farmers are being removed so that the nouveau riche may build their American Dream houses.
Rice is over $1.00 per kilo and petrol is the same - $1.00 per litre. Their are some irrigation systems in place and there is little rain fall.
When poeple can't eat, their children don't go to school - the only way out of poverty is through education.
There is a huge problem with families selling thier children as a means of survival.
We started off this problem. This is our responsibility in the West.
Brian saw the killing fields and now the country is on the raod to economic collapse as inflation is presently soaring.
Who pays the price?
the children, as always.
