Seeking Justice for the World’s Poor

The “Occupy Movement”, which campaigns for economic fairness and justice for the working poor and middle class, took advantage of the meeting of world finance ministers in Washington, D.C. at the end of April 2012 to stage protests in the streets surrounding as well as outside the main entrances of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund head offices. While banners, billboards, chants and protest signs conveyed several messages, one man, Barry Knight, sounded like he could be the spokesperson for Occupy, asking international finance corporations to make economic development and trade more fair and more beneficial for the most vulnerable and poorest people in the developing world.
