Genocide policy plaguing entire Africa: FreemanBy PressTV.com | Last updated: Oct 28, 2013 - 4:50:13 PM
“The international global financial system itself, run by the city of London and Wall Street, they don’t want Africans to live. They want to reduce the population. The genocide policy is continuing in Africa over these many decades,” Lawrence Freeman, Africa Desk at Executive Intelligence Review, told Press TV on Oct. 12.
The analyst further argued that the global financial system refuses to make any investment aimed at eliminating hunger and malnourishment in Africa, saying, “We are making a decision to kill people rather than build infrastructure in water, energy, rail transportation and agriculture that could feed people.”
Mr. Freeman further pointed to the views of “Malthusian extremists” who believe that “the world is overpopulated,” adding that “numerous statements” by Britain’s royal family suggest that they have similar ideas.
On Oct. 12, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported that over 360 children under the age of five lost their lives due to malnutrition in the West African nation of Niger during the first nine months of this year.
The deaths are the latest caused by the malnutrition crisis in Niger and elsewhere in Africa, with poverty being the main reason behind the crisis.
Malnutrition continues to take more lives in Africa, with children still being the main victims of the lack of essential food.
This situation has continued unabated, despite warnings by charity groups and their demand for further donations to help resolve the problem. Several charity groups have also urged world powers to take action, instead of making mere commitments to eradicate poverty.
