Hello friend,
Welcome to May's Debt Justice Activist Network newsletter!
 
It’s relaunch week! On Monday 16th we officially changed the name of our organisation from Jubilee Debt Campaign to Debt Justice (yes, the Debt Justice Activist Network got there first). If you missed the launch event, you can watch it here.

Recent News

Stop BlackRock 

Last month many of you were involved online and on the ground in our day of action against the financial giant BlackRock. Thank you so much for taking action.  

If you didn’t catch it, watch this video to see what happened. BlackRock was forced to respond to our campaign and issued a statement to the media.  

With Zambia going into talks with the global fund manager, it’s crucial that we keep up the pressure and call on BlackRock to #CancelZambiasDebt. 

Watch this space to find out how you can get involved in the next stage of the campaign. 

Debt and the climate crisis  

We know that countries in the global South urgently need debt cancellation to fight the climate crisis, and now the IPCC is saying it too.  

In their report published last month, some of the world’s leading climate scientists called for debt cancellation so countries are better able to fight the crisis. Read our new blogpost to find out more.

The UK’s personal debt crisis 

Half of UK adults are now either in debt or concerned about falling into debt. The pandemic and now the cost of living crisis have seen debt levels shoot up, and it’s time our politicians did something about it.  

With a rise in ‘desperation borrowing’ reported in the media, we need to take action to make sure unjust debts are cancelled.

Get involved

With hundreds of newly elected Councillors taking their seats after the May 5 elections, why not welcome them with an email asking them to ban Bailiffs? If you’ve already taken action please share it and ask other to get involved in the campaign.

Finally, if you don’t already support us with a regular gift, now is a great time to start as we’ll be giving away free tote bags with our new logo on them to all new regular givers as part of the relaunch. Every action we take together from signing petitions online to coming to events, or sharing our campaigns with your family and friends makes a real difference in our campaigns for debt justice.

Until next month, in solidarity,

Skye
