9th bulletin of international campaign on illegitimate debt

22 December 2009 by Debts Campaigns


This bulletin is published every 2 months to summarise recent and forthcoming actions in the International
Campaign on Illegitimate Debt carried out by activists across the world. It complements existing lists and
newsletters by publishing only extremely short and action-oriented articles, with links or email addresses for
follow-up.

The bulletin is an initiative of the International Facilitation Team of the International Campaign on Illegitimate
Debt. The Team was established in Nairobi in January 2007 and is composed of Jubilee South, CADTM, Jubilee
USA and Eurodad. It facilitates exchanges and joint initiatives of groups participating in the illegitimate
campaign.
Debt groups and movements have agreed to call for the immediate cancellation of illegitimate, unjust and
unpayable debt of the South without externally imposed conditions. The agreed priority areas for coordination
and joint actions are:

.Generating official recognition of the issue of illegitimate debt;

· Raising the profile of illegitimate debt issue among social movements, CSOs and the general public;

· Conducting debt audits; and
· Developing definitions, perspectives, analytical tools, advocacy instruments on illegitimate debt andalternative/responsible financing.

Please circulate widely to people you know who will be interested. Please send your feedback and/ or articles
for the next issue to: debtbulletin at illegitimatedebt.org
More information about the International Campaign on Illegitimate Debt can be found and circulated through the
Campaign Website — www.illegitimatedebt.org

The next issue will come out in March. The deadline to submit articles is March 15. Submit articles in a
short format (200 words), with web links and/or email addresses as appropriate.
