Boycott of WB bonds reaches Europe
News||8 May 2002|update 28|
European youth group ASEED organised a four day meeting in March to discuss the European development of the World Bank Bond Boycott campaign. This aims to use "grassroots financial and political power" to defund the World Bank and reduce its power. Participants explored the future of financial activism, ethical investment and other tactics.
ASEED is currently recruiting a young person to serve as a European coordinator for the campaign.
