who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Anti-war movement aggravated. Large anti-war protests yesterday marked the second anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. Organisers of the London protests said "the mood of demonstrators was hardened by the Bush Administration’s nomination of Paul Wolfowitz" to the World Bank. Lindsey German, convenor of Stop The War Coalition, said "the nomination of Wolfowitz, the man who is recognised as chief architect of war with Iraq, will outrage most decent people".

She continued: "Wolfowitz is the author of the US policy of terrorising the world militarily and now the US want him to act as the enforcer of US economic terrorism around the world. Their hubris is as staggering as it is frightening and we must continue to resist their extension of their War on Terror".

Some 45,000 people turned out to march yesterday in London, and many also marched in other cities in Europe and beyond.
