Fury over injustice of hunger 'has gone on too long'

Alongside the headline speakers at today's protest rally, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams also appeared. Dr Williams led a minute's silence "to reflect on the pain" of death by malnutrition:

Thinking about these unnecessary deaths, there should also be righteous anger. Fury that the injustice of hunger has gone on too long.

And so at the end of our silence, we must make a huge noise, to signify that we will never be silent on the things that matter.

– Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams
