WEEK OF GLOBAL ACTION AGAINST DEBT AND IFIs

Break the chains of debt!

2011-09-26_week_of_global_actionThe system of debt continues to devastate the lives of people around the world. People in the South face the daily impacts and consequences of the financial indebtedness of their countries, which far from having been "relieved" is growing in step with the crisis and the pursuit of extraordinary profits by the most concentrated forms of capital. They continue also to bear the burden of the unpaid historical, social, ecological, and climate debts which are increasing as well to the rhythm of false solutions to the global crisis.

Anticapitalism and environmentalism as a political alternative

by Esther Vivas

2011-09-25-esther_vivasWe cannot analyse the global ecological crisis separately from the crisis in which we are immersed or the critique of the economic model that has led us into it.

The starting point for today’s debate is to note that humanity is in a global ecological crisis that is an intrinsic part of the systemic crisis of capitalism. And one of the differences from past economic crises, from that of the 1970s or the crash of 1929, is precisely its ecological aspect.

The real debate is how

2011-07-29-lapavitsasA Greek default and exit must be taken in the people’s interests – not entrusting the process to the EU, IMF and banks.

Greece is facing an economic and social disaster, the result of its so-called rescue by the “troika” of the EU, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank. Greece must change course to avoid a grim future for its people: it must default on its debt and exit the eurozone.

Jamaica’s crippling debt crisis must serve as a warning to Greece

The experience of debt-ridden Jamaica shows the damage done when the interests of creditors are given too much weight. As the eurozone authorities move closer to the accepting the inevitable Greek debt default/restructuring, there are some who have pointed to the Jamaican debt restructuring of last year as a model.

by Mark Weisbrot

It’s hard to imagine a worse disaster for Greece. It is worth a closer look at what has been done to Jamaica, not only as a warning to Greece, but to shed some light on the damage that can be done when "the international community" is willing to sacrifice a country for the sake of creditors’ interests.

Grèce, Irlande et Portugal : pourquoi les accords conclus avec la Troïka sont odieux ?

par Renaud Vivien, Eric Toussaint

La Grèce, l’Irlande et le Portugal sont les trois premiers pays de la zone euro à être passés sous la tutelle directe de leurs créanciers en concluant des plans d’ « aide » avec la « Troïka » composée de la Commission européenne, de la Banque centrale européenne (BCE) et du Fonds monétaire international (FMI). Mais ces accords, qui génèrent de nouvelles dettes et qui imposent aux peuples des mesures d’austérité sans précédent, peuvent être remis en cause sur base du droit international.
