ACT NOW: Sign the call for a new debt jubileeInspired by the ancient idea of jubilee, a time when debts were cancelled, slaves were freed and land was redistributed, we are calling for a new debt jubilee in response to today's global economic crisis: a Jubilee for Justice.

The first great wave of jubilee campaigning in the run up to the year 2000 has seen $120 billion of debts cancelled for some of the world's most impoverished countries. But governments never fixed the system that created these debts, and the European banking crisis has shown the problem of debt is greater than ever in the world today.
A Jubilee for Justice means not just cancelling unjust debts, though this is vital, but taking additional steps to secure a global economy where people will never again be enslaved by debts.
We are building a giant paper chain petition to the Prime Minister to demand a Jubilee for Justice.
