The World Bank and IMF must stop fuelling inequality

We are a group of 133 civil society organisations from many different backgrounds and countries, representing millions of people. Together we are demanding the IMF and World Bank stop fuelling the global inequality crisis. We work for changes that are fundamental to achieving the just, equal and sustainable world we all desire. We are united in believing that all of our struggles are both worsened by, and are the product of, the global inequality crisis. We are coming together to fight inequality, which is fuelling injustices in land, health, education, taxation, worker’s rights, women’s rights, climate change and human rights. We are united in believing that the World Bank and IMF are too often fuelling inequality. We call on the World Bank and IMF to ensure that all operations and activities they finance contribute to reducing inequality.

Dear Colleagues,

Congratulations for such a fantastic Global Day of Action on 25 September!!! See the pictures here, on the GCAP Facebook page and twitter account and on act4sdgs.org.

With the Act4SDGs campaign we mobilized 914 actions in 110 countries around the world!

You have made this possible.

With this Global Day of Action, we have shown that again GCAP and partners have the strength to mobilize.

At the UN Headquarters in New York could hear and feel us - that we the people are demanding a much faster implementation of the Agenda 2030 and the transformation so urgently needed for people and the planet.

Governments heard us too - there are already concrete results of governments in Senegal and Spain reacting on the mobilization.

We’re still going through all the reports, but we’ve already put together an overview of the Act4SDGs events & impressions from GCAP National Coalitions and partners.

GCAP Works on...
