Inflation in INDIA causing Food riots and violence. No MSM?Submitted by takeaction on Thu, 02/04/2010 - 04:41
I find it quite amazing that something like this is not reported....just little corners of the net, that I find the news. Could this be a sign of what is coming?
NEW DELHI/PATNA: Violence erupted against rising food prices in Bihar on Thursday, heaping more political pressure on the government to focus on
rather than growth and financial reform.
Mobs stoned trains and jammed roads with burning tyres in Bihar, trying to enforce a day-long shutdown.
Shops, offices and schools remained closed on Thursday, when official data showed that food prices in Asia's third-largest economy
rose an annual 17.4 percent in mid-January.
At least 12 passengers were injured when angry crowds stoned a train in Hajipur town, while thousands marched in the street in different parts of the state asking shops to shutter.
