About The Event
WHILE THE DEBT EXISTS, NOTHING WE DO REALLY CHANGES ANYTHING ....
Tickets are free. Register here.
"Emerging and developing economies have been the worst hit by previous debt crises, World Bank research shows.
To meet debt payments, at least 100 countries will have to reduce spending on health, education and social protection, the IMF estimates. If countries default on their debts, it can cause panic on financial markets and economic slowdowns .." What does Global Debt Mean and How High is it Now? Weforum, May 16, 2022.
Debt means the property of the rich and the poverty of the poor. That's how wealth works. Inequality is manifest in debt and while inequality is increasing - which it is everywhere - there is less and less action to halt climate catastrophe.
Time really is running out. Morally and strategically, we need to cancel the debt.
Join The Jubilee Movement and Islington Climate Centre from 6:30pm to play, eat, talk and build the movement to cancel the debt.
Bring friends. Make an evening of it!
We will have some food but please bring snacks and drinks!
The Debt Game & Q&A 7-8pm

Socialising 8.30pm ...
Psst. Jubilee has nothing to do with the Queen. Jubilee means cancel the debt. That's what people were celebrating and that's why it means celebration now. It's time to remember there is another way ...
