Way way way past due this particular action. The US Government like many many other governments
are puppets under the umbrella of the Killuminati as many people now acknowledge. It will be
interesting to see what if anything may occur with such so called "urging and pressuring".

One lives in hope though hope is not a strategy!

Firstly let it be said that I am all for improving the conditions of the indigenous peoples of developing nations. However, the World Bank in tandem with the IMF are directly responsible for creating the current conditions and suffering of third world nations through their austerity economic practices. They extended insupportable loans to these nations knowing full well that they couldn't repay them. More and more of the developing nations' resources then became forfeit to the IMF and WCB wherein the large multinational corporations through globalization and then through corporatization reduced the developing nations to nothing more than slave labor camps.
That doesn't excuse the leaders of the developing nations who continued borrowing and borrowing knowing they couldn't repay the loans. It doesn't excuse the Federal Reserve for continuing to extend credit on bad international loans so that the banking house of cards wouldn't collapse.
The IMF and the WCB are both creations of the Rockefeller Foundation. Again it is the perverse process of creating a problem; profiting from it; creating a solution and profiting from that. The only real winners here are the upper ten percentile.
Yes, I am all for improving the conditions necessary for a healthy and productive life globally but I feel that the WCB is the fox guarding the hen house.

Problem is, no one really agrees what human rights are.

This is the most corrupt bank, having nothing nice to say about it.

The trouble is that different countries have different ideas of what constitutes human rights.Until human rights are agreed to and incorporated into international law abuses of the system will continue.
