As 80% of the money the World Bank uses to make its loans actually comes from the sale of bonds to institutional investors (pension funds, universities, municipalities, etc.). A campaign initiated by activists in Haiti and South Africa demands that the Bank immediately cease its structural adjustment programs. Until it does so, they are calling on those who buy and sell those bonds to suspend their business with the World Bank.
