2.3 Discussion

Indonesia stated in UU No. 18 Tahun 2012, pasal 1:

pangan adalah kondisi terpenuhinya pangan bagi negara sampai dengan
perseorangan yang tercemin dari tersedianya pangan yang cukup baik jumlah
maupun mutunya, aman, beragam, bergizi, merata dan terjangkau, serta tidak
bertentangan dengan agama, keyakinan dan budaya masyarakat, agar dapat hidup
aktif dan produktif secara berkelanjutan”

of that, we can conclusion get same treatment, include to get food everyone
must get his rights.

also has stated in UUD Pasal 34 ayat 1:

“Fakir miskin dan
anak-anak terlantar dipelihara negara” 

The number
of poor and displaced children who continue to grow can indicate the country
has been guilty of not providing a decent living for them.

We can
also see this matter in Pancasila’s perspective, as we already know Pancasila
has five silas (Indonesia,1945)

Yang Maha Esa

yang adil dan beradab


yang dipimpin hikmat kebijaksanaan dalam permusyawaratan perwakilan

sosial bagi seluruh rakyat Indonesia

in English:

1.      Belief
in the One and Only God

2.      Just
and civilized humanity

3.      Unity
of Indonesia

4.      Democracy
in the lead wisdom in deliberations representation

5.      Social
Justice for all Indonesian people

can relate this hunger problem to the 5th sila, stated “Keadilan sosial bagi seluruh rakyat
Indonesia” because being
healthy and prosperous while others suffer is injustice, it is not humane. By
ensuring that everyone can receive the same treatment, we enforce humanity and
