  2. The World Bank along with the International monetary Fund is an institution which the western powers set up after the second European tribal war. Since its inception it has been used as an instrument of essentially disenfranchising nations enfeebled for historical reasons.

    The World Bank has been propping the Tigre occupation force. It has been doing that fully knowing that the terrorist Tigre regime is bent on destroying Ethiopia.
    Any debt incurred by an illegitimate regime of Tigre fascists who have committed untold atrocities including instituting apartheid in Ethiopia, will be declared odious.

  3. Some one in the world bank must be making money to approve this loan. While all this atrocity getting committed by this Tigre fascists in Ethiopia, giving them more money to keep doing what they doing is giving them the green light to continue their atrocity.
