FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf urged everyone in the world who wants to show solidarity with the one billion hungry people to go on hunger strike next Saturday or Sunday.
The head of FAO said he will personally begin a 24-hour fast on Saturday morning on the eve of the World Summit on Food Security scheduled to start on Monday next week.
The meeting has been called to agree on immediate action to reverse the situation of over one billion people who live in chronic hunger and to build momentum to end this scourge of hunger and malnutrition.
Heads of state and government of the agency's 192 members have been invited to attend and Jacques Diouf hopes that there would be as many participants as the last Summit in 2002.

Head of the FAO announced the launch of "online petition" against hunger on www.1billionhungry.org

Visitors can sign a petition if they agree that one billion people suffering from chronic hunger - is unacceptable.
