We know this is a light-hearted way to get our issue noticed, though the urgent need for debt cancellation is anything but. Many lower income countries are crying out for debt justice so they can fight covid.
Africa is spending three times more on debt repayments to banks and speculators than it would cost to vaccinate the entire continent. It’s so crucial we make sure those with the power to cancel debts act. That’s why we’ve got to get the word out at the G7.
Any funds left over will go to our campaigning work for the rest of the year, so please do chip in.
All the very best,
Eva, Jerome, Zak and the whole JDC Team
