Food riot shocker!

The Guardian reports food riots.

This is due to sharp rises in food prices.

Fair enough.

However much land has been taken out of food production in places like Africa because there is no money competing against American and European subsidised food dumping.

With a bit of luck these poor farmers can now make a dollar or two growing food again, thereby lifting people out of poverty.
