Britain has made a bold stand by banning vulture funds – the insidious hedge funds who buy up bad debt and drag developing countries through the courts until they pay it back. But now we need to go further by trying to get other countries to do the same! There is currently an Early Day Motion (no 666) in Parliament calling for this to happen, so we need as many MPs as possible to sign. Can you write to your MP asking them to sign the motion?

Jubilee Scotland campaigns for global debt justice.
We do this by engaging people across Scotland to take action on these issues, and through these activists we persuade decision-makers to fight for debt justice too.
Our Debt Justice Pledge is a way for individuals and organisations to show their support for and end to unfair and unpayable debt, and a change in unjust global economic systems.
Please sign the debt justice pledge, and encourage others to do the same. If you're part of a group or organisation then ask them to sign up as well - unions, churches, student societies, local councils, schools, football teams, co-operatives, choirs - all are welcome!
