Food distribution policy advice

  • Mid meal for school students from class 1 to class 5 (2007 – 2017)

  • Women with 0-5 y children given bank loan and opportunity for cottage industry

Food Security

  • Advocate for legislation for rural workers 200 days employment guarantee scheme

  • Advocate for legislation for a Minimum Daily Wage (linked to inflation)

  • Use this action for legislation change as platform for NGO coaltion formation / mass action and strengthen PHM Bangladesh

Long term policy advice

  • Advocate for legislation for Khas land reform for landless.. These lands for 99 year lease will be in name of head of house who must be female. The land is to be used as farming, gardening, etc.

  • Male and female offspring have equal right to land and property inheritance irrespective of religion

How to make government listen to this great policy advice we have?

Invite foreign experts to policy meeting at Min. of Health, Dhaka

Picket outside parliament - Dhaka

JUST Joking!!!

Actions to make these policies happen

  • Media – case studies NGO publications / radio / TV– circulate widely

  • NGO collaborations to align views and advocacy programmes

  • Use right to health – then legal cases of neglected right to health, People’s tribunal for food rights

More actions to make these policies happen

5. Consider activists/ PHM members contesting election at any level

6. Guarantee block votes to good policy contestants - NGO’s /friends

7. Advocate and lobby to policy makers to local MPs, ministers, mayors

8. Set up political platforms – for people’s health issues at election time

9. Each policy maker must have a Gender Equality position/ desk

Also can use social marketing song and dance

Famous visiting African health dramatists

International activists prepare a dance

Song I translated – Child of mother earth

You are a child of mother earth

Still then being a child of mother earth why are you not able to get food?

Those who you think of as caretakers, government ministers and bureaucrats

Have they been able to fill your stomach?

And if you are protesting about this, why are you whispering so quietly?

Your voice is not strong

Don’t you know how to rebel?

Song II – Song from mother to her son about climate change

Hey lame man

I , your mother will become febrile, shivering and crying

Her feet will be soaked in sweat

But then don’t say that it was because of the sea tides or storm waters

Those who you believe are the healers and saviours, they say it is due to global warming

The Right wing US

The Left wing China

And their followers who believe that industry can feed you

And you lame man, believe those who do what they want

I am your mother and you don’t trust me

Dhonnobad – thank you
