As the World Bank proceeds apace with Free Market neocolonialism, its public relations bureau scrambles to maintain the illusion of respect for international law in the realm of human rights. Even as this UN institution colludes with the US and the EU to undermine the sovereignty of modern states and indigenous nations opposed to Free Market tyranny — conducting coups d’ etat under the guise of Rainbow Revolutions — the allegedly inclusive proceedings of the UN continue to exclude and marginalize the Third and Fourth World. So it comes as no surprise that the World Bank now fetes us with more empty promises about yet another deceptive process aimed at increasing transparency and concern for human rights–by the very body that has treated them with utter contempt.
Hypocrisy seems to soft a word.

By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
