Oct 9, 2014

Right now, millions of people are being thrown off their land because large corporations are being given special rights.The World Bank is driving this destructive trend with its Doing Business rankings, which force countries to compete with each other to do away with things like environmental protections, workers rights and corporation taxes.Sign on to demand the abolition of the rankings.

October 10 – In 12 cities!

On October 10th, join arms with us in a global stand for our future. We will turn our furious love on the World Bank; that critical link in the chain between Wall Street and the “developing world”. All over the world, from Dakar to Washington DC, from Mexico City to Delhi, we will be gathering, demonstrating, speaking, writing, exposing.

We will do everything in our considerable power to stand against the World Bank’s insane, suicidal prescription for development that puts the growth of corporate power above all else; that ignores the truth of how the world is fed by ordinary people on small farms, not corporations; and that denies the science of how our fields, our rivers, and even our bodies are being poisoned by industrial farming whose only true beneficiaries are the 1%.

When you show solidarity you bring together the sparks that start a revolution.

The banks, the 1%, the corporations, Wall Street, the global elite have infiltrated once-democratic institutions built by our predecessors’ persistent and thankless organizing. To root them out will require not a single revolutionary moment from the old playbook but a shift of consciousness on the global scale. This is what we are about.

So where do you stand, with the World or with the Bank that corrupts it?

Act. Support. Take a stand.
