We have been promised food and civilian aid, on a number of occasions. We were also requested to prepare lists of the poor and the needy in our village in order to give priority [in aid assistance] to the neediest. We witnessed several such promises and the winter passed, but no one saw even a seed being given to anyone. No one knows what happened to the aid we were promised.
We really don't know why the government is daydreaming. Do we have a government or not? Is the government looking out for its own survival by betraying the people and breaking its promises?
How can I request that you play a song when I am starving to death? We need mercy and help, so please try to discuss our problems further with our government officials.
