Smashing Hunger; Squashing Poverty

Presentation and video with Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry

Sponsored by the Agri-food Collaborative

Food Not Bombs volunteers have been smashing hunger and squashing tofu in protest to the exploitation of capitalism for over three decades. Keith McHenry will talk about the principles and history of Food Not Bombs, and will also discuss its participation in the global transformation away from corporate domination. Food Not Bombs takes the position that hunger and poverty are intentional features of capitalism and will increase as corporate power increases.

Over 25,000 people die every day because of hunger.  Oxfam and the UN predict  that hunger will be on the increase this year, leading to civil unrest and violent police repression.  The capitalist food system is not only causing millions of animals to suffer but is directly responsible for an increase in food insecurity, disease and the climate crisis.  Keith’s presentation will inspire you to participate in the transition to a future free from violence and exploitation.

This event occurred Friday, November 22, 2013, at 2:00 pm in 125 Nolte Center.
