Jubilee 2000

Spake the Lord to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them: entered that hallais into the land which I give you, let it rest a year seven on seven, to honor the Lord likewise tell seven weeks of years, i.e. seven times seven years that together make forty-nine years and the seventh monthday ten of the month, which is the time of the feast of Atonement, will sound the Horn by all your land. And you santificaras the fiftieth year and anunciaras referral or rescue general for all the inhabitants of thy land, because this is the year of the Jubilee. Each will recover its possession and each which will be released to his ancient family, as the fiftieth year, the Jubilee year. Do not you sembrareis segareis what’s yours one is born in the field, nor recogereis the first fruits of the harvest, in order to sanctify the Jubilee but that poor that you first put forward.

In the year of Jubilee everyone have regain their possessions. The Earth, well not be It will sell forever because it is mine and ye are newcomers and mine settlers. And so all-terrain of your possession will be sold with the condition of redeemable… (Leviticus, Chapter XXV). These beautiful and wise words of the creator in the Jubilee 2000 campaign was inspired?, released in 1996 by the three largest agencies Christian aid in Great Britain and by the movement of global development, which resulted in the creation of the Jubilee 2000 Coalition, which currently brings together more than 70 organizations, including Christian AidCAFOD, Oxfam, Tear Fund, Federation of institutes of women, help in action, national black Alliance, etc, and acts in more than fifty countries of the world. The main claim of Jubilee 2000 is the cancellation, for next year, of the unpaid and unpayable portion of the external debt of the developing countries. But this goal also, aims at the recognition of the responsibility of both creditors and debtors and seeks solutions to avoid that the accumulation of these debt levels can return to repeat.

Communism! Some will say. Theft! They shout the absolute owners of the universe. Lol It’s a simple, fair and proposed Christian who should be welcomed without major considerations by creditors and debtors, i.e. by all those guilty of this critical situation of underdevelopment afflicting humanity. Because it is no secret that the debt overhang of the third world, begun in the early 1960s and turned into total bankruptcy throughout the Decade of the eighties, it is today the almost unique cause of misery and inviability of all countries with unlimited supply of labor and natural resources or Heavily Indebted Poor Countries, as they now call the Nations of the southern hemisphere. Especially when we know that much of those billions of dollars provided by private commercial banks or by Multilateral banks were into pockets private, through the work of corruption, or ended up buying all the military weaponry than He never served for nothing good. And much more, if we know by those billions of dollars we pay fluctuating interest that have only increased and increase by the unilateral decision of the creditors! By all this, men and women of the world: to the Jubilee 2000 unios! It is God’s Word!
