Famine in Somalia

Program #GREJ001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on October 10, 1992.

Famine, one of the four horseman of the Apocalypse, is decimating Somalia. The graphic photos in the press and the TV footage barely convey the horror and tragedy. Harden journalists report of scenes of desperation they have never seen before. How and why the famine occur? What can be done about it?

Interview by David Barsamian


Janet Green

Janet Green travelled to Somalia in mid-September 1992 to witness the situation first hand. She is Oxfam America's director of education and outreach. She is particularly interested in issues of hunger and development.
