who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Petition closes with 1650 signatures. Eurodad has put out a final version of the petition against Wolfowitz. Now with over 1650 signatories (Excel). Sorry it took a while to post all of your names and organisations (thanks for reminders).

We had sore wrists from cutting and pasting, and lots of other things to do. Especial thanks to Alessandra (Fontana), Olivia (Debouver) and Lucy (Hayes), who bore the brunt of the work.

We have now, a week later than planned, closed the petition. We suggest that people continue to take action, but by writing directly to their head of state or other relevant ministers. Or you can use Pesticides Action Network North America's on-line activism facility to trigger a message to World Bank Executive Directors before their meeting next Thursday.

And don't forget to bother your legislators about this - they are the best-placed to put pressure on ministers to say when they knew about the Wolfowitz appointment and what position they are taking.
