Drop the debt!

A report about the impact of the Jubilee 2000 Debt Campaign at community and national levels

2003 Available in English

The Jubilee Debt Campaign was formed in the early 1990s to help countries completely write off the large debts they owed to richer nations and institutes. Jubilee 2000 was created to mark 2000 being the year when countries would no longer owe unpayable debts, allowing them to invest these resources in healthcare, education, and infrastructure. The global nature of the crisis meant that success would only come with a strong, international campaign that put pressure on the G8 – the group of the richest nations. For years, leaders and lenders dodged the annual G8 meetings, but in 1998, in Birmingham, UK, 70,000 people gathered at the Summit.

The report highlights the impact of the Jubilee Debt Campaign at a national and community level.
