The winds of revolt against austerity measures blow across France. Protesters against new French Labour Laws are now questioning the socio-political system and its choices. See the articles “Nuit Debout’s (Up All Night's) call, place de la République Paris, 8th April 2016” and “Thursday March 31st 2016, After the demonstration don’t go home, let’s occupy the square!” to know more about the issue.

Three articles “The Colonial Origins of the Greek Bailout”, “The Evolution of the Discussion of the Greek Debt:” and “ SYRIZA, the IMF and the EU: Gambling with the Future of Greece” expose the disgraceful deals between the Greek government and the Troika that are sinking Greece into a greater crisis.

Other articles are on: the Rwandan genocide and debt; workshops on citizen debt audits at the “A Plan B for Europe” conference in Madrid; Bulgaria in the trap of neo-liberalism; East and Central European Social Forum in Wroclaw, Poland, and others.

In an interesting development, 23 economists and political scientists have critiqued the way banks function today and have suggested immediate measures to make them responsible to the population at large. See the article “What is to be Done with the Banks? Radical Proposals for Radical Changes” to know more about it.

    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.
