As a follow-up to their campaign to Stop The Corporate Take-Over of Africa’s Food, members of the Bexhill and Hastings group of the World Development Movement (WDM) met recently with Bexhill and Battle MP Greg Barker. They expressed their grave concerns about the G8’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition and the financial support it receives from the UK government.
