IMF Campaign

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB) are accused of fostering an unjust, destructive and corporate-controlled world economy. These institutions lend money to needy nations and impose rules on those nations as a condition of the loans that affect their development plans. In April 2000, IMF and WB ministers meeting in Washington, DC faced protests similar to the WTO protests in Seattle just months earlier. The Internet figured heavily in the education and mobilization efforts.
