The Daily Horror: Aleppo’s River of the Dead

Syria – another country torn apart by politics. People suffer and people die because of self-interested parties. Dictator Assad, Russia and aggressive neighbours like Israel and Iran are not interested in peace nor are they interested into the people. They simply search for power.

The men from the collection point for the nameless dead always come during the morning. They descend from a major intersection in the Bustan al-Qasr district to the small Quweiq River and bring the bodies that have washed up overnight to a courtyard, where they are wrapped in white sheets and photographed before being left there for a day. This is the place where people looking for missing relatives come to find them.
River of Death Alleppo
Last week, dozens of corpses were found on the shore of the Quweiq River in Aleppo, Syria. Many appear to have been students at a nearby university who were murdered by the regime after travelling to the city for exams.

Returns to Commodities Speculation

Don’t play with food, my mom always said – but specs do.

Many financial institutions and multinational organizations view speculating on food commodities as a dangerous game and a contributor to global hunger. Despite its bruised reputation, is leaping back into the business.

This is precisely the business that organizations such as Foodwatch and Oxfam, and even United Nations institutions such as the Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), hold partially responsible for hunger in the world.

The fact is that, in recent years, an enormous market has developed for financial products used to speculate on fluctuations in food prices. Critics say that these deals drive up the prices of corn, rice, wheat and other commodities, making food unaffordable for many in the Third World.

Its’ a shame!
