All good news for the countries concerned.

Also today BBC News had an interesting article about German debt.

At every turn it seems we are all concerned about the issue of debt. More and more reasons every day for you to take part in the JUBILEE FOR JUSTICE action.Please  get every faith leader you know to sign the special letter to the PM.

The list of signatures grows daily just look to see who you know.

I was very encouraged when so many of the clergy I knew  and emailed asking for support did sign up. It is something that every faith group can take part in.

Another simple way we can show our concern for those who are enduring poverty that comes from the debt burden.

The Jubilee for Justice campaign mentioned in previous posts is now growing fast.

There has been wonderful surge of support from 135  Faith leaders in the first few days. You can see the ever growing list of names HERE

Thousands of citizens are following the initial lead of the faith leaders and signing both on   line and in the form of paper chains   

calling for the true meaning of Jubilee to be followed.

Several articles have appeared in the faith press and main media outlet such as the Guardian but we need you to help us spread the word.

It would be particularly good to have the support of Dharmic faith groups and the Muslim community in coming weeks. Please do let us have your comments on ways we can expand the reach of Jubilee for Justice.
