Victory -- Wolfowitz Forced Out!
Paul Wolfowitz resigned.
Two years ago, George W Bush was able to install Paul Wolfowitz as World Bank President despite the international outcry. But yesterday, Bush simply could not overpower world opinion. He could no longer ignore you – the many thousands who supported our campaign, and the many millions who felt the same around the world.
His resignation is just the first step towards real change -- the World Bank and IMF should serve the world's poor, not the agendas of donor nations. It is time to end the convention that the US and Europe unilaterally choose their leadership.
Thanks once again for making this happen, see you in our next campaign! || |
