Global food prices soared by 10 percent in July from a month ago, with maize and soybean reaching all-time peaks due to an unprecedented summer of droughts and high temperatures in both the United States and Eastern Europe, according to the World Bank Group’s latest Food Price Watch report. From June to July, maize and wheat rose by 25 percent each, soybeans by 17 percent, and only rice went down, by 4 percent. Overall, the World Bank’s Food Price Index, which tracks the price of internationally traded food commodities, was 6 percent higher than in July of last year, and 1 percent over the previous peak of February 2011. Droughts have severe economic, poverty and nutritional effects. In Malawi, for instance, it is projected that future severe droughts observed once in 25 years could increase poverty by 17 percent, hitting especially hard rural poor communities. And in India, dismal losses from droughts occurred between 1970 and 2002 to have reduced 60-80 percent of households’ normal yearly incomes in the affected communities. “We cannot allow these historic price hikes to turn into a lifetime of perils as families take their children out of school and eat less nutritious food to compensate for the high prices,”said Kim. “Countries must strengthen their targeted programs to ease the pressure on the most vulnerable population, and implement the right policies.”

Spanish ‘Robin Hood’: “This is the biggest rip-off in the history of capitalism,” said Gordillo. “The banks created huge amounts of private debt which went toxic. Now they are using public money, taken from the poor, to rescue them. That is what the cuts to health and education are about. “We want to show that this crisis has a human face. People are losing everything – their jobs, their homes, and some don’t even have enough to eat.” “The situation is critical and I think there is now a chance of change. The system cannot resolve people’s problems,” said Gordillo. Him and his marchers cross Andalucía, watched by wary police – Gordillo’s reputation as a modern-day Robin Hood has grown this summer after a series of “workers’ marches” across southern Andalucía saw followers raid food from two supermarkets and hand it to the poor. Flash occupations of bank branches and an empty luxury country hotel have kept his small Andalucian Workers’ Union in the headlines as debate rages about a style of direct action that attracts those seeking radical change to Spain’s current diet of soaring unemployment, recession and harsh austerity.
