Abolish "Doing Business" Rankings

Add your voice to the Our Land Our Business campaign against the World Bank’s “Doing Business” rankings which encourage land grabbing.  Right now, millions of people are being thrown off their land because large corporations are being given special rights. The World Bank is driving this destructive trend with its Doing Business rankings, which force countries to compete with each other to do away with things like environmental protections, workers’ rights and corporation taxes.  Sign on to demand the abolition of the rankings.  The PC(USA) has signed on to this campaign with organizations from all over the world.
