Indigenous leaders angry at World Bank, IMF
News||18 June 2001|update 23|
World Bank and IMF policies harm indigenous communities around the world and are a new form of colonisation, said delegates to the First Millennium Conference of Indigenous Peoples, held in Panama in May. "These organisations lack methods that draw on the indigenous world view," with its essential aspects of respect for nature and all forms of coexistence. This "turns them into agents that undermine our cultures," stated Biadilla Lino of the Nicaraguan Association of Mayangnas Women.
