The CADTM sees, in the latest Oxfam report, a stark reminder and an acknowledgement that inequality and dispossession of the poor is growing at alarming rates that have never been witnessed before in human history. The article, The scourge of rising inequality – A case of Pakistan explains the Pakistani case. In similar lines, the articles Greece falls prey to ECB diktats and blackmail and Human rights law beyond borders: Confronting austerity in Greece expose the unfair advantages taken by creditors, of the bankruptcy of the Greek political leadership, to impose further precarity.

Meanwhile, sub-prime spectres return in the US. Many new victims are being caught up in debt spirals, be it the Haitian peasants, the Sri Lankan plantation workers, the Rohingya Muslim refugees of Myanmar or the Syrian refugees in Europe enduring a precarious existence. Protesters risk the same fate as Saeed Baloch, the fisher-folk leader from Pakistan who has been arrested and jailed under heinous laws.

Rays of hope that continue to trickle in from Portugal and the Conference on the Plan B for Europe encourage and reinforce our struggles.

    As you know, CADTM has been deeply involved in the struggle for the abolition of the debt demanded from Greece. It was under the impetus of CADTM that a commission to audit Greek debt was created in March 2015. This auditing task is achieved by the voluntary work of the commission members helped by numerous CADTM members who have brought valuable assistance to the cause of bringing to light the truth about the Greek debt. Please support the CADTM.
