World Debt Day to take place 16 May 2004

Jubilee Debt Campaign will hold an international day of action on Sunday 16 May 2004. Jubilee Debt Campaign is part of the global movement calling for the cancellation of the unpayable debts of the world's poorest nations. The date -16th May - has been chosen to commemorate the first mass action in the UK of the Jubilee 2000 Campaign (the forerunner to the Jubilee Debt Campaign).

On 16 May in 1998, at the G8 Summit in Birmingham, UK, 70,000 people formed a human chain around Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, and other world leaders to call for a debt free start to the new millennium. This year's anniversary of that event will be a chance not only to celebrate the debt cancellation the Jubilee movement has already achieved but also to take a sober look at the financial burdens still shackling poor countries. 

A message will be sent from around the globe to the leaders of the world most powerful countries ( who will meet at the G8 summit in the US June 8th 9th 2004) that true security will not be achieved with out ending global poverty. Faith groups and other debt activists worldwide have promised their full support to campaign actively to ensure that World Debt is at the top of the G8 agenda.
