Justice Mail 22nd June 2012

Dear Justice Mail Friends

Food speculation greatly increases the cost of commodities on the world markets. Justice Mail supported the World Development Movement’s campaign to end this practice that is having a negative impact on low income consumers in the UK and also results in millions of people in developing countries being forced into poverty and hunger (see Justice Mail Action 4th Jan 2012) .

WMD states:
The Financial Services Authority (FSA) is supposed to be the UK’s 'independent' financial regulator, but is involved in behind the scenes lobbying for food speculation.

Use the link below to write to Lord Adair Turner, the chair of the FSA, to ask him to support regulation to reduce excessive food speculation.
