In the 1980s and 1990s, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) intervention in developing countries’ national policies, through aid conditionality and austerity programs known as Structural Adjustments Programs (SAPs), triggered a wave of global resistance against the International Financial Institutions (IFIs). in the face of growing criticism that these policies increased poverty, debt, and dependency on rich countries, saps were eventually withdrawn in 2002; however the World Bank, through renewed means, continues to pursue and impose its neoliberal agenda on the developing world.

A couple of protests are planned for Obama's trip to South Africa.  Historically they have laid off Obama, but his support of tyrants and oppression has eroded his image..

This is most definitely a Political article/interview thing (scroll down to find the text of the interview) since it is all about Obama and the protestors in Africa.
