Jubilee Debt Campaign Birmingham

Archive for August 2012

Jubilee Debt Campaigners braved really tough condition over the Bank holiday weekend at Greenbelt.
On the Saturday afternoon they  had half a dozen or so deluges of monsoon-like rain interspersed with bright sunlight. This led to   periodically streams of water appearing in the tent and the volunteers standing   ankle deep in mud.

John Nightingale Ruth Tetlow, Roger Chisnall of JDC  and  Rebecca Pannels of Methodist  Relief  and Development Fund all worked very hard to collect well over 130 signatures to our petition .

Faith Leaders  Mike King and Bill Anderson signed the Faith Leaders letter which will be  delivered to the Prime Minister later in the year.

Dozens of other clergy also signed on the day. The total at the moment stands at 224 and includes leaders from all the main faith groups across the UK.
Please do encourage all your contacts to take part in our call for a meaningful celebration of the Jubilee year.


Jubilee Debt Campaign steering group members were invited to the Arya Samaj on Sunday 19th August to join the  India day celebrations. It proved to be an interesting and informative day for my colleague Rev John Nightingale and myself. We enjoyed a cultural programme that included poems, flag raising, wonderful food and dance.



There was time to also meet a wide cross section of Indian community from across the West Midlands who  were willing to sign our Jubilee for Justice petition.Image


International Arya Samaj  preacher was happy to sign  a very special letter which is going to the Prime Minister later in the year. over 200 Faith leaders have signed so far  including the  Jains leader.Image

We look forward to attending more festivals and celebrations where we can share across the faith communities our call  for Justice on the issue of debt and global poverty. Please do remember to ask us also for displays and presentation at your group meetings.
