An Island Of Food In Africa’s Horn Of Hunger

The Horn of Africa may be the Horn of Hunger for millions but in the midst of all the drought, starvation and suffering, there lives and grows an island of food security, little Eritrea and its five million people.

The Great Ethiopia Land Grab

In the first of our Land Grab Series, we examine Ethiopia’s “Land Grab”, and the dispossession of tens of thousands (if not millions eventually) of Ethiopian citizens, under the 20-year old authoritarian and brutal regime of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, which is leasing Ethiopian land for up to 99 years to foreign businesses and governments without any significant consultation with the people most affected.

We explore why a “beggar nation” like Ethiopia which cannot feed many of its people, that is suffering from famine, perennial food shortages, endemic hunger, and chronic dependency on foreign aid, is selling off its fertile lands and natural resources to foreign agro-businesses to grow food that will be exported to their own countries.

But, human rights investigators say that the Security Council is ignoring Ethiopia’s own genocide, in the Ogaden Basin, and, that the West is funding it.
