The ongoing war between Russia and the peaceful Ukrainians has disrupted Ukraine's economy and status as a reliable wheat exporter. Disruption has hurts other areas of Ukraine's economy and it will decades to recover. Patterson has appeared to support Ukrainians at events in California (Los Angeles and the Bay Area) and Washington DC.   He plans to produce additional writings on the economic disruptions in Ukraine too support payments from Russia due to its military and economic crimes. He is interested in talking with other AZ members interested in collaborative projects.

Who Feeds Us?

Reporting on a Student Activity at George Washington University in DC

AZ alumni James Patterson, (Auburn) a former US agricultural diplomat, recently visited Gelman Library at George Washington University for a research project. He noticed a student activity outside the library. Students were raising money "for those who feed us." Patterson thought students were raising funs for small family farmers or maybe farm workers idled by California drought.  Instead upon closer examination, Patterson noted students were raising money for DC restaurant workers. "They serve us," Patterson told the students, "farmers feed us." Patterson reports it is unclear if students plan another activity to raise money for small farmers.
