Save the bank: Appeals shocked Nobel hero
Aug 3, 2012 — The Bangladesh Cabinet of the Government ratchets up the stakes. Here's an excerpt of the article:
Prof. Yunus said, "This government decision will destroy the bank of the poor and the country's bank of pride. I request the countrymen to come forward to protect the property of the poor and the country. I also request the poor owners of Grameen Bank to urge the government and their fellow countrymen so that they do not curb their rights to exercise ownership."
