I talked with Bridgette Kelly who recently returned from a Witness for Peace trip to Nicaragua. She toured both the rural areas and the city of Managua. Ms. Kelly said small subsitence farmers there are being tremendously hurt by globalization (NAFTA, CAFTA…) that allows for corporate farms in America to undersell these Nicaraguan farmers — at their own local markets. This is a tremendous social justice travesty. What’s more, Ms. Kelly said of her stop in Managua that she had never seen so many “thin, hungry people.” Meanwhile, 66% of Americans are now considered “overweight.” If you do the math, wouldn’t it make sense (spiritual common sense) for some of us in America to cut back on our food intake and help these people more in Managua? Sure it would.
