Jubilee Debt Campaign

Jubilee Debt Campaign is demanding an end to the scandal of poor countries paying money to the rich world. We are calling for 100% cancellation of unpayable and unjust poor country debts.

Founded 1996

  • Mission statement

    Jubilee Debt Campaign was created to challenge the enormous and unjust debts which rich countries and their banks created in the developing world, and which still keep the people of many countries locked in a debtor’s prison today.

    We work for the cancellation of unjust developing country debts and the creation of a just financial system which puts people first.

    Only by the creation of a radically different financial system can we hope to wipe out poverty, encourage strong and democratic societies and foster a more equal and peaceful planet.

  • Aims

    Jubilee Debt Campaign aims to:

    • The cancellation of unjust and unpayable global debt and the creation of systems which prevent such debts arising in the future.
