The International Monetary Fund (IMF) owns an incredible 3,217 metric tons of gold. At the recent G20 summit, world leaders committed to using funds from selling a small fraction of that gold to help developing countries that are struggling to prevent 53 million people from slipping into poverty by 2010.
Please click here to sign our petition to the Managing Director of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Khan asking him to use funds from the gold sales to help the world’s poorest countries in ways that won’t create debt or hurt their economies with harmful new conditions:
Please use the revenue from gold sales to create as much funding as possible for developing countries and ensure that this doesn’t create new debts or have harmful conditions attached.
Let’s make sure the IMF hears from us that this sale is a golden opportunity to help the world’s poorest people without costing us anything at all. Please add your name to our petition, and send a message that the world is watching and demanding the IMF take action now.
