World Bank sees Turkish Economy Optimistic

Speaking to business daily Referans, Marwan Muasher, the senior vice president of the World Bank, says Turkey is well equipped to overcome the current crisis. Muasher also warns police forces not to use excessive violence against protestors during the Oct. 6-7 annual meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund

As Turkey transforms from a “major borrower” to a “donor nation,” it is appropriate that the World Bank-IMF annual meeting is held in Istanbul on Oct. 6,7, according to a senior World Bank official.

Speaking to business daily Referans, Marwan Muasher, the senior vice president of the Washington-based World Bank, also said security forces should not be too harsh on the anticipated protesters.

“This year we chose Istanbul for many reasons,” he said, speaking in Ankara Tuesday. “Turkey is a very important country both in the region and in the world. It is at the crossing of two major continents; it is a country that is an emerging economy, a member of the G-20, a member of the United Nations Security Council.” Turkey is transforming from being a major borrower from the World Bank to being a donor, he noted.

Muasher, a Jordanian national, expects about 13,000 participants from almost all 185-member countries of the World Bank to join the annual meeting. “We also expect a number of civil society organizations,” he said. “Around 650-700 individuals [from such groups] usually register for accreditation and 400 join in the meetings every year. [This year] we might see more civil society groups due to the location of Turkey.”

Calling on police forces:
Calling on Istanbul police “not to use pepper spray” against protesters during the meeting, Muasher said that civil society has always been a key part of the process. “Even if they criticize the Bank, there is no reason to hurt [them],” he continued. “What is important is that the protests should commence peacefully and in an orderly fashion.”

Turkey hosted the IMF-World Bank annual summit in 1955 for the first time, and this year it will be the host again after 54 years. The summit will be held at the Lütfi Kırdar Congress Center.

Commenting on Turkey’s role in the global economy, Muasher said the country “can play a key role as a developing country that has achieved very high growth and that has extensive ties with both the developing and developed world.”

“In that sense, Turkey can play a key role as a member of the G-20 and beyond,” he said.

Muasher also said the World Bank “agrees with many voices in the poorest countries who feel that they have been left out of the equation.”

“[Another] measure that we feel is important is to be on guard against [the threat of] protectionism,” he told Referans. “With unemployment becoming a big problem in the current financial crisis, there is a concern that it might [trigger] protectionist measures in many countries. We continue to be on guard against that.”

The Turkish economy is expected to experience a “significant contraction” this year as unemployment rises. But due to “sound macro-economic measures,” implemented since the aftermath of the 2001 crisis, it is still in a good position, Muasher argued. “The danger of the crisis to continue for a long time in Turkey is very remote,” he said.

Muasher joined the World Bank as senior vice president of external affairs on March 16, 2007 from his most recent position at the Jordanian Senate. His career has spanned the areas of development, diplomacy, civil society and communications.

Convite para a Fogueira da Resistência

Convite para a Fogueira da Resistência


Porta vozes e burocratas de corporações multinacionais capitalistas, estarão em Istambul, Turquia nos dias 6 e 7 de Outubro para o Encontro Anual dos “Chefões” de governos do Banco Mundial e do Fundo Monetário Internacional (FMI), onde eles tomarão decisões que podem afetar, e destruir vidas de bilhões de pessoas.

Sem duvida, isso será um mais uma reunião para defender as regalias e benefícios dos governantes capitalistas, eles discutirão pacotes econômicos, políticas austeras e protecionistas assim como acordos constitucionais onde somente adicionarão mais um ramo dentro da cadeia de exploração para o futuro dos pobres e do planeta em que vivemos.

Experiementos de primeira viagem na Argentina, Jamaica, Nigeria, Kenya e qualquer outro lugar provaram há muito tempo que as políticas do banco Mundial e o FMI não trouxeram nenhum beneficio alem da otimização da exploração. O FMI e o Banco Mundial cabeças da arquitetura capitalista global, são instrumentos primordiais na exclusão dos pobres de suas origens e lares, centralizando toda economia nas grandes metrópoles, comercializando e monopolizando, e até mesmo privatizando os recursos naturais, como água, petróleo e minérios a algumas corporações internacionais. Tais políticas também prejudicam a agricultura local com as políticas de agricultura neo-liberal, industrial de monocultura, subdividindo e conseqüentemente desunindo as classes de trabalhadores com a criação de novas leis trabalhistas.

13.000 agentes do governo e possivelmente mais patrulhas policiais estão destacadas para protegê-los, estarão andando entre nós durante os dias do encontro. Esses dias provavelmente serão um inferno. Buscas policiais, controles de identidade, bloqueio nas ruas, cercamentos e por ai vai.

Vamos mostrar a eles o que realmente é um inferno. Nosso fogo será o terror deles!

Convocamos todos para uma semana de protestos, resistência global e ações contra o FMI e o Banco Mundial entre os dias 1 e 8 de Outubro. Em Istambul estamos planejando organizar oficinas, exibições, exibição de filmes, palestras e atividades contra o FMI e o Banco Mundial. Teremos acomodações para aqueles que vêm de outras cidades e ate de outros países. Se você quer participar das preparações e do processo de mobilização, por favor, entre em contato conosco pelo endereço direnistanbul@gmail.com.

Приглашение к костру сопротивления

Приглашение к костру сопротивления

6-7 Октября 2009 года в Стамбуле, Турция произойдет очередная встреча чиновников и различных представителей транснациональных капиталистических корпораций в рамках ежегодного заседания совета управляющих Всемирного Банка (ВБ) и Международного валютного фонда (МВФ), на которой будут приниматься решения, уничтожающие жизнь миллиардов людей.

Без сомнения, это будет еще одно совещание, направленное на сохранение преимущества капиталистических правителей, которые будут обсуждать экономические проекты, реконструкции

и жестокие политические и конституционные условия, каждый раз добавляющие еще одно
кольцо в цепи эксплуатации бедных и планеты в которой мы живем.
Опыт Аргентины, Ямайки, Нигерии, Кении и других стран уже давно доказал, что политика ВБ и МВФ не имеет преимуществ, помимо бедности и эксплуатации.

МВФ и ВБ являются ведущими архитекторами мирового капитализма, основным инструментом для изгнания бедных из их среди обитания, из их жилья – через политику городской джентрификации1, коммерциализацию и монополизацию водных ресурсов, продавая их нескольким транснациональным корпорациям; структурами, притесняющими локальные фермерства своей неолиберальной политикой в сельском хозяйстве, укрепляющими цепь вокруг рабочих путем внеднения новых законопроектов, относящихся к работе по найму и трудоустройству.

13.000 “преступников”, а возможно даже больше, будут призваны для патрулирования города в это время для их защиты, они будут ходить среди нас все эти дни.
Вероятно, эти дни будут похожи на ад. Полицейские обыски, паспортный контроль, блокирование улиц, защитные ограждения и так далее…

Давайте, давайте покажем им, что такое ад! Наш костер будет их кошмаром!

Мы призываем к неделе глобального сопротивления и действих против МВФ и ВБ, 1-8 октября.

В Стамбуле мы планируем организовать семинары, выставки, кинопоказы,
обсуждения и мероприятия по борьбе с МВФ и ВБ.

Для приезжих из других городов, стран будет организовано жилье.

Pozyvame vas prilozit na vatru odporu!

Pozyvame vas prilozit na vatru odporu!

Hlasne truby a byrokrati nadnarodnych kapitalistickych korporacii budu pri prilezitosti Vyrocneho stretnutia rad guvernerov Svetovej banky a Medzinarodneho menoveho fondu opaet prijimat rozhodnutia o zivote a smrti miliard ludi û tentokrat 6-7 oktobra 2009 v tureckom Istanbule.

Niet pochyb o tom, ze pojde o dalsie stretnutie urcene poistovaniu vyhod vladnucich kapitalistov. Tu budu prediskutovavat svoje ekonomicke balicky, svoju politiku obnovy a uspornych opatreni, ktore do buducnosti predstavuju len dalsie oko nadpojene na retaz vykoristovania chudobnych a planety, ktoru obyvame.

Argentinske, jamajske, nigerijske, kenske a dalsie skusenosti z prvej ruky uz davno preukazali, ze opatrenia SB a MMF neprinasaju nic len praaave vykoristovanie a nudzu. MMF a SB, veduci architekti globalneho kapitalizmu, predstavuju hlavny nastroj vytlacania chudobnych z ich habitatov urbanistickou politikou vystavby pre bohatych, komercializacie a monopolizacioe vodnych zdrojov ich predajom medzinarodnym korporaciam, obetuvania miestnych farmarov nadnarodnym kapitalistickym podnikom s ich neoliberalnymi polnohospodarskymi pravidlami, a posilnovania okov robotnikov zavadzanim novej pracovno-pravnej legislativy.

V tieto dni sa ocitneme tvarou v tvar 13000 zlocincom a zrejme este pocetnejsim ozbrojenym zlozkam povolanym na ich ochranu. Akiste to budu dni pripominajuce peklo na Zemi. Policajne prehliadky, kontroly dokladov, blokovanie ulic, oplocovanie, a tak dalej.

Vzchopme sa; ukazme my im skutocne peklo!

Nech sa im nasa vatra stane nocnou morou!

Tymto vyzyvame k tyzdnu celosvetoveho odporu a akcii proti MMF a SB, medzi 1.-8. oktobrom. Do Istanbulu planujeme workshopy, vystavy, premietania, diskusie a ine aktivity proti MMF a SB. Ubytovanie pre tych, ktori pridu z inych miest a zo zahranicia, bude zabezpecene. Ak by ste sa radi podielali na pripravach a na mobilizacnom procese, kontaktujte nas, prosim na direnistanbul@gmail.com

Nigeria: Malaria – Country, World Bank Sign $100 Million Pact

Abuja — Nigeria and the World Bank yesterday signed a $100m agreement in what is seen as a major push to eradicate malaria in the country. The fund is an additional financing for the malaria control booster project.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, which took place at the Ministry of Finance, Abuja, the World Bank Country Director for Nigeria, Mr. Onno Ruhl, said Nigeria’s efforts towards the eradication of malaria in the country was on course.

// //

He commended the exemplary leadership provided for the fight against malaria by the Minister of Health, Professor Babatunde Osotimehin. He said the World Bank was confident that with the exemplary antecedents of the minister in the fight against HIV/AIDS, Nigeria would triumph in the fight against the disease.

He said this was already manifest given the concerted efforts and integrated approach adopted, especially the involvement of the faith community in the malaria control efforts.

He noted that US President, Barack Obama , while in Ghana commended the initiative adopted in the fight against malaria where the leadership of the Muslim and Christian communities were being partnered by government.

In his remarks, the Health Minister, Professor Osotimehin, assured that mosquito nets would soon be distributed in the country in large quantities.

// //

“When we started the AIDS treatment in Nigeria, there were cases of people stealing the drugs to sell on the open market, but when we flooded the country with the drugs and we were administering it for free to HIV/AIDS patients, the black market for it was completely wiped out.

“In the same manner, we are distributing 60 million nets in the country free of charge and this will be coming along with free treatment for children and other measures with which the integrated war on malaria will be fought”, he said.

According to him, “we are using all we can in this. This will be exciting times in malaria research in Nigeria as the we are becoming the cynosure of all eyes. Thus, we will take advantage of this and showcase the skills and ability of Nigerrians to do things right. There is no doubt that this will come with a lot of challenges, but we will overcome them”.

Osotimehin assured the World Bank that “we would show results and ensure that there is transparency and acountability in our way of doing business.

He said we will show results and garner trust and faith in our system so that we can get more fuinding because with what we have on offer so far, we still need more funding to fully implement our plans to kick malaria ourt of Nigeria”.

Mr Ruuhl Signed on behlaf of the World Bank while the Finance Minister, Sarki Muhtar, signed on behalf of the Federal Government.

Also present at the event were the Solicitor General of the Federation who represented the Minister of Justice. The ceremony also witnesed the presence of health commissioners fron the 36 states who are expected to be key players in the malaria control efforts.

EM LI BENDA TEVLÎBÛNA WE YA ŞAHIYA BERXWEDANÊ NE!

berxwedanstenbul

Nûner û burokratên şîrketên kapîtalîst ên pirnetew û dewletan, ji ber civîna salane, ya IMF (Fona Pareyan a Navneteweyî) û Banqeya Cîhanê, ya ku dê jiyana bi milyaran mirovan reş bike û bike jehr, di 6 û 7’ê Cotmeha 2009’an de dê li Stenbolê bin.

Civîneke zîrweyeke din a ku bi armanca parastina serdestên kapîtalîst çêdibe, ku dê li ser paketên aborî, şert û mercên ahengsaz ên bingehîn, polîtîkayên kemerşidandinê, ku ji bo xîzan û feqîrên bi milyaran û ji bo pêşeroja gerestêrka em li ser dijîn, ji bilî zêdekirina xelekên zincîra kedxwariyê pê ve bi kêrî tiştekî nayê bê axavtin…

Ewqas tiştên ku hatine jiyîn bi awayekî aşkera nîşanî me daye ku, (Arjantîn, Jamaîka, Ekvador, Nîjerya, Kenya û hwd.) polîtîkayên IMF û Banqeya Cîhanê ji bilî xîzanî-feqîrî û kedxwariyê pê ve tiştek neaniye û nayîne. IMF û Banqeya Cîhanê ya mîmarên gerdûnîbûna Kapîtalîzmê ne, bi riya polîtîkayên veguherandina bajarî(asîlkirin), di asta yekem de berpirsyar in ku, malên xîzan û feqîran ji destê wan diçe, ew dibin penaber; ava ku bingeha jiyanê ye dikeve destê çend kesan û nava lepên çend şîrketan, bi pêkanîna polîtîkayên  çandinî hilberînerên herêmî dibin mehkûmê patronên kapîtalîst, bi riya zagonên karkirinê (îstîhdam) xelekên nû li xebatkaran zêde dike.

13.000 diz û talanker û ji van zêdetir hêzên ewlekariyê, yên ku ji bo parastina wan ferman jê re hatiye dayîn, di wan rojan de dê di nava me de bigerin. Bi îhtîmaleke mezin jî dê wan rojên me li me bikin dojeh (cehenem)! Lêgerîn, pirsa nasnameyan, girtina riyan, dorpêçkirina der û dorê û hwd…

Werin, em bi hev re, di van rojan de jiyana wan bikin dojeh. Şahiya me bila bibe xewnreşka (qebûsa) wan!

Em dixwazin, di navbera 1-8 Cotmehê de, li dijî IMF û Banqeya Cîhanê çalakiyên cûr bi cûr, gotûbêj, xebatên atolyeyan, pêşengeh û konseran li dar bixin. Ji bo kesên ku dê ji welat û bajarên din bên dê mal bên peydakirin. Kesên ku dixwazin tevlî amadekariyên organîzasyon û çalakiyan bibin bi riya agahiyên ragihandinê dikarin bi me re bikevin têkiliyê. Weke din, kesên ku dixwazin di derbarê xebatên amedekariyê bi rêk û pêk bibin xwedî agahî dikarin malpera me a web’ê ku dê her tim bê nûkirin ziyaret bikin.

Bi hêviya, ku di rojên şa yên berxwedanê de em piştgiriya navneteweyî bilind bikin.

Li Dijî Sermiyanê Xweseriya Gelan!

Tu jî Bibe Dengek Ji Bo Qêrîna Li Dijî Sermiyana Neteweyî û Navneteweyî!

Se le invita a LA GRAN HOGUERA DE RESISTENCIA!

Se le invita a LA GRAN HOGUERA DE RESISTENCIA!

Bureaucrates y representantes de empresas multinacionales capitalistas será en Estambul en 6 – 7 de octubre para la reunión anual del Banco Mundial y el FMI (Fundación Internacional de Dinero), donde se toman decisiones a miles de millones de ensombrecer la vida de las personas.

Otro cumbre para proteger los beneficios de los soberanos capitalista, donde los paquetes económicos que no tienen ningún otro uso que añadir otro anillo a la cadena de explotación de miles de millones de pobres y para el futuro del planeta en que vivimos, las reconstrucciones y las políticas de austeridad, según las condiciones constitucionales se discutirá …

Las experiencias en la vida real (Argentina, Jamaica, Ecuador, Nigeria, Kenia etc.) mostró que, evidentemente, las políticas del Banco Mundial y el FMI no tienen ningún beneficio que ofrecen la indigencia y la explotación a otras personas distintas , y no hay otro manera. El FMI y el Banco Mundial, que son la principal artífice de la globalización del capitalismo, son los principales responsables instrumentos para el destierro de la población pobre de sus hábitats y sus hogares por las políticas de transformación urbana, después de haber hipoteca sobre el agua que es la principal necesidad de la vida por unas pocas empresas, condenando a los locales obtentor mundial capitalista patronos por las políticas agrícolas, para agregar nuevos anillos a la cadena de personas que trabajan por el nuevo empleo legislaciones.

13,000 ladrones y muchas más fuerzas armadas que toman los pedidos para sus protección será caminando entre nosotros en aquellos días. Probablemente, ellos nos muestraron el infierno! Frisks, control de DNI, bloqueos de carreteras, vallas, etc …

Venga, vamos a mostrar el infierno para ellos en aquellos días! Vamos a dar la hoguera en su pesadilla!

Nos gustaría organisar algunos conciertos, talleres, exposiciones, presentaciones de películas, las conversaciones y las actividades contra el FMI y el Banco Mundial entre 1-8 de Octubre. Organizaremos alojamiento para los que vienen de otras ciudades y otros países . Las personas que deseen participar en los preparativos de las actividades y las organizaciones pueden ponerse en contacto con nosotros con la información de contacto. Además, aquellos que quieran recibir regularmente información sobre la fase de preparación de las actividades pueden visitar nuestro pagina de web que se actualizará periódicamente.

Esperamos a aumentar la solidaridad internacional en la hoguera días de la resistencia!

Autonomía de las Personas Contra la Capital Mundial!
