Civil society anger. A snapshot of the diverse national civil society statements against the Wolfowitz nomination.

Rede Brasil: "the nomination of Mr. Wolfowitz is an outrage to all of us that aspire to build an international system that is more just, peaceful and committed to fostering socially and environmentally sustainable forms of development".

Right to Food Movement (Bangladesh): "Wolfowitz is a controversial person for his role in Iraq war and his nomination to head the World Bank has stunned the world".

CEE Bankwatch Network: "Mr Wolfowitz's well-known track record of unilateralism is fundamentally ill-suited to a a multilateral institution which must balance the diverse interests of its member countries".

Many of these groups also signed the joint petition, and further civil society statements are appearing all the time on IFIwatchnet.
