Harvesting paddy in Bangladesh

Harvesting in Bangladesh is mostly done by daylabourers or by a group of labourers on contract. They do hard work for low wages. Over a billion people go hungry in the world, that is one in every six persons in the world, 642 million of them in Asia and the Pacific. This while more than enough food is being produced to feed the whole world. Hunger and poverty are political problems. See: www.viacampesina.org, an organisation of small farmers worldwide.
