Sare Campaign St. Patrick's Day Leaflet: In the Spirit of the Irish, Let’s Abolish Hunger across the Globe, from Palestine to Port-Au-Prince

March 12, 2024 (EIRNS)—The Diane Sare campaign for U.S. Senate in New York issued this statement March 9. (, (646-328-1932)

It is now known that as many as 1.5 million people died of starvation and disease in Ireland between 1845-51, exactly the number of Palestinians being threatened with death by starvation right now in Gaza. In Ireland, the famine was caused, not by a “potato blight,” which is a cover story, but by theft of food from starving people!

A 1997 article entitled “The Irish Famine: Complicity in Murder” reported:

“According to economist Cormac O’ Grada, more than 26 million bushels of grain were exported from Ireland to England in 1845, a ‘famine’ year. Even greater exports are documented in the Spring 1997 issue of History Ireland by Christine Kinealy of the University of Liverpool. Her research shows that nearly 4,000 vessels carrying food left Ireland for ports in England during ‘Black '47’ while 400,000 Irish men, women and children died of starvation.

“Shipping records indicate that 9,992 Irish calves were exported to England during 1847, a 33% increase from the previous year. At the same time, more than 4,000 horses and ponies were exported. In fact, the export of all livestock from Ireland to England increased during the famine except for pigs. … Other exports from Ireland during the ‘famine’ included peas, beans, onions, rabbits, salmon, oysters, herring, lard, honey and even potatoes.”

The so-called “Irish Potato Famine” was not caused by blight, but by the willful intent of the British Empire to kill millions of Irish through starvation.

Today, the same thing is occurring in Gaza, Sudan, and even Haiti. This is not because the people who live in these places are too backwards to feed themselves, as racist anthropologists would have you believe, but each case is mass murder by design and intent of a dying Anglo-Dutch Empire.
