INEQUALITY IS INCREASING.
THE WORLD IS GETTING HOTTER QUICKER.
RADICAL EQUALITY IS THE SOLUTION.
JUBILEE IS THE MOVEMENT.
1. CANCEL DEBT - student debt, payday loans, DWP debt, council tax arrears & more. Cancel international debts ‘owed’ by developing nations & former colonies.
2. LIBERATION - by breaking up the big banks, ending the hegemony of globalised finance capital and removing the influence of money in politics which has undermined democracy.
3. LOCAL SOVEREIGNTY - the goal: diverse, cooperative industries; high-quality employment; zero-carbon infrastructure; rights to health, shelter, education and more; community and worker-led.
COUNTRYWIDE COMMUNITY ORGANISING
After decades of activism and small wins, why is inequality growing, why is the world getting hotter quicker; why is nothing working?
Increasing inequality and environmental destruction caused by humans labouring in the yoke of the current system outruns any small gains activists have made. We need huge changes to throw off this yoke and, for that, we need to come together to design them and build confidence. There's no shortcut. We need to do the work. No one is going to do it for you.
Join your local Jubilee group.
In your community, people are suffering right now and it's worse at the end of the month, every month.
Join your community group organising a free meal and much more for one day at the end of the month, every month. The first step is easy. This is not charity, this is system change.
Join the countrywide Jubilee network, organising for real change from the grassroots to the top. We need a new revolutionary consciousness and it begins in communities everywhere.
We don't have all of the answers. We don't know how bad the cost of living crisis will get or where energy prices will be in two years.
What we do know is that signing petitions isn't going to help us.
What we do know is that strong community networks, led by workers across the country, can put us in a position to take real action to get the economy we need - one that serves the people; one that is fair.
What we do know is that the establishment aren't going to make it easy because we say no more compensating the owners and the big banks. We won’t stop until we have an economy that's just for everyone.
DEMAND A JUBILEE FOR CLIMATE
Jubilee is the thousands-of-years-old tradition of debt cancellation, land redistribution and radical economic change to bring equity and justice and stop suffering. Why have we forgotten that?
Inequalities of all kinds manifest in unequal ownership, pay gaps and debt. Debt weighs like a knee on the neck of students, of people with disabilities, of the poor and of the peoples of the global south. Today's economic, political and legal systems, built on the legitimised exploitation of inequalities, have undermined cooperative employment and equitable land use, and driven the planet to the brink of climate breakdown. Climate change is the devastating symptom of a disease that has much deeper roots: inequality.
JUBILEE IS A RESET
Without debt cancellation, economic redistribution makes the lender-class richer.
Without debt cancellation, there is no acknowledgment of colonialism or slavery.
Without debt cancellation, efforts to prevent catastrophic climate change will fail.
CANCELLING DEBT IS JUST THE BEGINNING
The wisdom and science about thriving, equitable communities as well as preventing climate and ecological breakdown points to increasing local sovereignty. Without changing ownership and policies and power, inequalities and monopolies will come back. Power needs to be taken back into local hands.
WHAT WE KNOW IS THIS:
WITHOUT DEBT CANCELLATION, THE INEQUALITY IS STILL THERE.
WHILE PEOPLE ARE UNEQUAL, THEY ARE NOT FREE TO GOVERN THEMSELVES.
WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT GOVERN THEMSELVES, THE POOR GET POORER, THE LAND DIES, THE WORLD WARMS AND THE PEOPLE RISE UP.
WHERE'S MY NEAREST GROUP?

START A GROUP
Join our weekly meetings and get access to resources to bring Jubilee to your local community.
WHILE THE DEBT EXISTS, NOTHING YOU DO CHANGES ANYTHING.
ONLY FREEDOM FROM THE DEBTS THAT DRIVE PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMES AND LANDS CAN STOP CLIMATE CHANGE FOR GOOD.
DEBT FOR CLIMATE!
We're proud to stand with our partners in the Global South creating a grassroots movement to leave trillions of dollars worth of fossil fuels in the ground and ecosystems intact in return for debt cancellation by wealthy creditors in Global North countries. Without debt cancellation, indigenous lands, the Galapagos and many more vital ecosystems will be exploited.
Debt swaps like these must happen on the people's terms. Jubilee for Climate supports the people and global justice.
