Clare from the Jubilee Debt Campaign writes:-
Over the years you’ve helped to sustain the Jubilee Debt Campaign’s work for debt justice by signing petitions or encouraging others to do so, attending workshops or events, or by pushing out our actions on social media. Your efforts have been key to some very big and important victories, and in laying the groundwork for many more to come.
We want to say thank you for all that you’ve done and to share our important and exciting plans for the next few years, and how you can get involved.
I’m writing to invite you to our upcoming national event on Saturday 29 September in Birmingham.
2018 marks two significant dates for the debt justice movement: 20 years since the ‘human chain’ around the G8 which saw more than 70,000 on the streets of Birmingham calling for debt cancellation, and 10 years since the start of the financial crisis which ‘brought home’ the debt and austerity politics that countries in the global south have long been subjected to.
As the Jubilee Debt Campaign, we want to mark this important year by bringing together campaigners from across the UK to spend a day together talking debt justice campaigning past and future.
You can expect a workshop about debt issues in 2018, rousing speeches, a city-centre stunt, catching up with old friends or making new ones, and food and refreshments and films.
You can come for a couple of hours or the whole day. We really hope you can make it.
