An interfaith delegation from Birmingham and West Midlands Jubilee Debt Campaign delivered hundreds of messages to 10 Downing St on Wednesday July 18 calling for Gordon Brown to take further action on cancelling the debt of the world’s poorest countries.
“This is a crucial moment in our campaign; we are taking hundreds of messages, photographs and recordings from local people to Gordon Brown which we have collected in recent months,” said Audrey Miller, local organiser for the group.
Jehangir Malik, Manager of Islamic Relief, said, “Communities need to work as hard now as ever before to campaign for what is just… and justice requires that the debt is dropped for the world’s poorest people. That message needs saying again and again and again… until things change in a significant way.”
