Whatever else changes Capitalism never does. Christmas Day in America, 1/7 Americans exist miserably on incomes that put them on hunger risk. Over 15 million American children rely on food banks for assistance. Food insecurity blights every single U.S county; more than 31 million American children live on incomes that qualify for subsidised lunches. Nearly 40 per cent of America’s homeless are under 18-years of age.
During the Irish famine (1845 – 1849), an estimated 500,000 people were dispossessed of their cottages. Unscrupulous landlords used two methods to remove destitute tenants. The first involved applying for a legal judgment against the male head of a family owing back-rent.

A ‘notice to appear’ was usually enough to cause most pauper families to flee and they were handed out by the hundreds.

The last Saturday of November is Holodomor Day, which is a remembrance of the seven to nine million Ukrainian Christians that were murdered through starvation by Bolsjewik Communists, between 1932 and 1933. Please say a prayer for the poor souls who were not only murdered but the truth of their murders has been buried, along with their emaciated corpses.
100 years ago, in November 1920, the White Guards evacuated from the Crimea. Off media radar is one of the most horrific holocausts to stigmatise the half-human race. The proud Cossack had long suffered stigmatisation, hate and horror by the Bolsheviks. On November 14, 1920 one of the largest flotillas in European history was moored off the bay at Sevastopol in Crimea. The rescue by armada included 150 ships of every size and type imaginable. Most but not all were ships of Imperial Russia.
The 1943 Bengal famine, which resulted in the death of over three million Indians, was a direct result of then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s policies and not drought.
