Strike Debt Moves From Jubilee To Refusal

Creditocracy and the Case for Debt Refusal also marks the transition of Strike Debt beyond the Rolling Jubilee, which successfully abolished almost $15m of debt in one year. Conceived as a limited project, the Rolling Jubilee had an enormous public impact, and far surpassed our goals. While we still have funds to spend on debt buys, we have closed the fund for new contributions so that we can focus our energies on the larger, more long-term goal of building a debtors’ movement. If you want to set up your own Strike Debt chapter, starting with a reading group of Creditocracy is a good way to get one going in your area.
