Jubilee 2000 Celebration

WP_20180929_14_12_46_PanoramaBreaking The Chains From 1998 To The Present Day
Three members of Hartlepool for Peace & Justice went to the celebration of 20 years of the Jubilee Debt Campaign in Birmingham on Saturday 29th September. Notwithstanding a cancelled train a good time was had by all.
Keynote speech by Nick Dearden (Global Justice Now) & supporting presentations by Ann Pettifor (Prime Economics), Atallah Fitzgibbon (Islamic Relief) & David Golding (North East Call to Action). These presentations illustrated that even though campaigning prompted significant changes over the last 20 years, the current problems of inequality & debt are still to be overcome. Time to raise a glass to Jubilee Debt Campaign’s past achievements & to their future work!
