Two Actions for Global Economic Justice

Take two actions today for global economic justice.

First, call on the International Monetary Fund to use extra funds it has gained through the sale of gold reserves for debt relief for the world’s poorest countries.  The IMF Executive Board meets later this week to discuss how to use this $2.8 billion in extra cash.

Second, urge your faith leader (pastor) to sign on to the petition letter to President Obama, urging him to pursue just economic policies that will benefit nations in the global South. Many poor countries have accumulated huge debts, burdening the citizens of these countries although they are not the ones who incurred such debts in the first place.
