PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE WORLD UNITE TO RETURN THE WORLD BANK'S TROJAN HORSE
OF SUSTAINABLE DEVLEOPMENT!
Over the last ten years, instead of helping to bring people out of poverty,
the World Bank has invested over $20 billion in dirty fossil fuel industries
through handouts to corporations. The World Bank has been sending a Trojan
Horse to the Global South labeled "sustainable development," but inside is
riding the Bank¹s failed version of development: oil, mining, and gas
projects that destroy the environment and violate the rights of communities.
World Bank investments in oil, mining and gas leads to human rights
violations and environmental devastation at every step of the fossil fuel
chain of destruction. From destroying pristine ecosystems, displacing and
poisoning communities to fueling global warming, investments in fossil fuels
put the interests giant corporations ahead of the needs of local communities
and the planet.
In Central Africa, the World Bank pledged almost $500 million to help
ChevronTexaco and ExxonMobil run a massive oil pipeline through the
endangered rainforests of Cameroon. In South America, the World Bank helped
finance a series of gas pipelines, partially owned by Enron, through
wetlands and tropical forests in Bolivia and Brazil.
Now its time to RETURN TO SENDER the World Bank's whole model of fossil fuel
based development that puts the interests of giant corporations ahead of the
needs of local communities and the planet.
Join us on September 26 to demand clean energy, democracy and and end to
public financing of oil, gas and mining!
