Reject the Fight Against Hunger?

I read a very interesting article this morning by Gustavo Duch in LaJornada (if you read Spanish, you can read it here).
He concluded the article in a way that really resonated with me, especially as I gear up for a Policies Against Hunger conference in Berlin next month and for a meeting later this week about the G8’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition.
In the article he wrote:

We reject the fight against hunger. It has been converted into a way of feeding the agroindustries and financial speculators. We are against the hunger for profit and we are for the food sovereignty of African communities and the world.

This is a very interesting point and one I have reflected about a lot in the context of discussions around nutrition and food security.
Would like to hear your thoughts on this!
