CSOs reject diluted World Bank safeguards
 
1

Frustrated and angered by the lack of right-upholding provisions – this was the general disposition of non-government organizations (NGO) and civil society organizations (CSO) to the World Bank (WB) draft safeguard as they walked out from the World Bank consultation and staged a protest outside Astoria Plaza in Ortigas.

The consultation that was attended by more than a hundred CSOs, World Bank Manila representatives and World Bank East Asia representatives was the first of 36 consultations to be held in different parts of the world
 
Among the groups that unified their forces in the protest are AKBAYAN, Aniban ng Manggagawa sa Agrikultura (AMA), Alliance of Progressive Labor (APL), Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM), Bank Information Center (BIC), DANGAL, Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC), NAGKAISA, NGO Forum on the ADB, Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ), SANLAKAS and Asian NGO Coalition for Agrarian Reform and Rural Development.
