Not For Sale / LICENSE / Hannover

‘Not For Sale’ is a part of LICENSE, Creating Fear As A Brand. This work is a critical remark on NGO’s as World Food Programme.

Kenyan economist James Shikwati says in an interview with Der Spiegel: “aid to Africa does more harm than good”.* According to him, the food aid increases corruption as local politicians have the opportunity to steal some of the aid to bribe voters or to sell the aid in the black markets killing the local agriculture.** He claims that the WFP people as an organization “are in the absurd situation of, on the one hand, being dedicated to the fight against hunger while, on the other hand, being faced with unemployment were hunger actually eliminated”. He suggests that WFP answers too easily to the calls of the corrupted governments, and supplies too much of food aid leading to reduction of the production of local farmers as “no one can compete with the UN’s World Food Programme”.

It signifies how Europeans have come together, in the form of the EU, to work for peace and prosperity, while at the same time being enriched by the continent’s many different cultures, traditions and languages.

  • Mir wëlle bleiwe wat mir sinn = Luxemburg
  • Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit = Deutschland
