Ethiopia Jelang Kelaparan Lagi?

Lihat foto-foto di Big Picture-nya Boston.com, Ethiopia kembali dilanda krisis pangan.

Recent crop failures, drought conditions and the current high price of food have plunged Ethiopia into another food crisis, reminiscent of the famines of 1984-85 which killed over 1 million. People have become so desperate for food that they are eating seeds that were meant for their next harvest. 4.5 million Ethiopians are in need right now.

Begitu nyata tapi seperti tidak mau percaya. Lalu lagu Iwan Fals di periode itu pun bisa dinyanyikan kembali: dengan rintih dan perih karena tahu bahwa keadaannya masih seperti itu.

Obrolan kita dimeja makan
Tentang mereka yang kelaparan
Lihat sekarat dilayar Tv
Antar kita pergi ke alam mimpi
Ethiopia Ethiopia Ethiopia Ethiopia

Dan di Indonesia pun agaknya masih ada yang kelaparan, meski mungkin belum (dan semoga jangan sampai) krisis pangan secara nasional.
