Jubilee 2000 coalition:
During the summer, Siyua Le'lo Gvulot, started collaborating with two of
Israel's leading environmental organizations, Peula Yeruka and Megama Yeruka,
in creating a first-of-its-kind Israeli coalition, supporting a global struggle to rid
developing countries of their enormous debts.
In doing so, we joined Jubilee 2000, an international movement, calling for
cancellation of the unpayable debt of the world's poorest countries by the end of the year
2000, under a fair and transparent process.
According to the latest UN estimates, the debts crisis is causing
the actual death of about 19,000 children every day. The poorest countries of the
world are overwhelmed with debts they would never be able to pay back, causing as a
result, strangled economies, wide spread and deepening poverty, with no chance for any
future economical growth.
