He declared to the weekly report of TVE programme: every day 100,000 people die of hunger or its immediate consequences. 856 million people live serious and permanently undernourished. There is no any fatality because a child who dies of hunger is killed. The order of the world is not only deadly but absurd, since it kills without need. During the Forum on food security within the framework of the G-8, the Spanish President announced a new aid of EUR 500 million for the next five years that will be allocated to child nutrition programs. This amount adds up to 1,000 million euros placed on the table by the Spanish Government at the end of the month of January. The American proposal was the reach the additional figure for aid to agricultural development and food security of about 15,800 million Euros in the next 3 years. The German Government has provided 14,000 million Euros, an amount that matches that annually also puts at the disposal of the Church.
In Spain the Church receives more 6 billion euros from the State. These transfers of public funds show that the majority of European countries are covert confessional States and that church-state separation is still a chimera. The situation in which we are now global crisis and hunger, Governments should ask themselves if it is correct that all this money is intended for the rich and powerful of the world organization when the population this increasingly affected by all these global threats; now more than ever is they should allocate public funds to help people who need it.
