Jubilee Debt Campaign Birmingham

Archive for November 2010

November 1st to the 7th was Islam Awareness Week with daily involvement of Jubilee Debt Campaign in sharing our concern for Moslem  indebted countries. especially Pakistan. Many new supporters signing the Pakistan petition calling for cancelation of thier debt rather than giving more loans.

I certainly learnt a great deal about the Muslim way of life during the week and realised how JDC ideals link to the Moslim prospective on debt. Salma Yaqoob provided an inspiring address at our event , then poetry and drama all added value to the  JDC evening.You can download a summary  for your own use.

Now we are getting ready for the even bigger programme of   Inter Faith Week which runs from 20th to 27th of November. The JDC Multifaith project will be displaying our  educational and faith resources that raise awareness of on how faith groups can take action on Global poverty.

The week promises to have really varied programme of films from Birmingham  film co op with lively Question time at the Nishkam centre plus music, dance and poetry not to mention lots of eating in with  Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist and Moslem communities. Find out more  on West Midlands Faith Forum.

If you are attending any event and can offer to help staff our display stand do please get in touch with Chris Bloore the Multifaith co ordinator or me Audrey Miller.
