(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups Perpignan - Puig Antich - Poverty, insecurity ... When the poor awaken (2/9) (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:15:55 +0200

The second in a series of nine "productions" Group Puig Antich Perpignan (December 2014) ---- If we resume sine die the vocabulary of "economists", we would repeat uncritically that "the food needs of the French, are [today] saturated". Infamous lie that this assertion. ---- Recall that in 1997, the authors of "healthy nutrition barometer" (Baudier et al., 1997) emphasized the importance of the budget among the determining factors in the composition of the meal. Others have, as part of a senior supply survey conducted in 1998 highlighted the fact that in the age of 50/60 years, some groups do not have the feeling of eating, otherwise their fill, at least as much as they want (Poulain, 1998). ---- A recent study shows that in Ile de France, many people are forced to use "food aid". An unemployed engineer testifies to the microphone Europe 1: "We do not know how to fill his fridge at the end of the week, or that meet the child who says: 'There is nothing to eat.' "

Today, that food aid should be "[that] a limited social response" to emergencies within an "affluent society", this aid therefore actually represents "the way "for many households to meet their daily food needs. Faces of food poverty have become many and cover different realities.

Institutions such as the "heart of Eating", "Secours populaire" etc. serve hundreds of thousands of meals ... It is the same in the Pyrénées-Orientales where tens of tons of food are collected by "food bank" of the department. In 2014, it is the equivalent of 190,000 meals that will be distributed through thirty associations.

Thus, the population is "generous", it seems indisputable but that generosity should not and can not hide the scale of the problem. The multi-speed society in which we live is a totally inhuman society. A sad reality that this affluent society, where the month of December is synonymous for some joyous revelry-es, and others, many others, to resort to begging, loss of autonomy, the loss of human dignity.

Food insecurity is invited everywhere, in homes younger as older ones like those of the unemployed workers. In December, New Year celebrations for many, eating is not a " gift "! Furthermore, when we eat bread "balanced", eat 5 fruits and vegetables, in everyday life, it is a great anything! Indeed, can you eat balanced and diversified when it has a very limited budget?

In 2013/2014, heart Eating distributed 130 million meals to 1 million people and among them, 40,000 babies under 18 months.

That is the sad fact of a precarious society of great poverty, society or the selfishness of the rich and wealthy is erected under! A society in which those who have "a little" do care more about those who have nothing at all!
