Main Inside Heading Faith-based Involvement

International Debt Campaign The Jubilee Year 2000 Global Debt Campaign intensified and popularized the involvement of faith-based sector on the debt issue. The Campaign pursued a collective push for debt relief and policy reforms directed to lending institutions and governments to demand an end to the debt bondage. With concerted efforts coming from different parts of the world, the Campaign succeeded in putting the debt issue as a main agenda in the discourse of poverty reduction. Thus, debt relief initiatives were developed such as the Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) and the Multilateral Debt Relief Initiative (MIDRI). Moreover, it paved the way for a strong global movement on the debt involving campaigners from the South and North.

Faith-based Congress Against Immoral Debts (FCAID Network) FCAID was founded on October 15, 2007 in a “faith-based unity congress” attended by various faith-based groups and individuals in agreement with the basic calls of the event.

Release of the Statement of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) on the Foreign Debt Problem, 19 September 1990. In the Philippine Jubilee 2000 Debt Campaign, various faith-based organizations, Christians and other faith denominations alike, joined hands in gathering 800,000++ signatures in support of the call for the Repeal of the Automatic Appropriations on Debt Service.

The 2007 Philippine Sabbath Year Campaign aims to continue what has been started seven years earlier and go beyond. It is a comprehensive debt campaign to be led by a strong faith-based constituency that will focus on the moral dimension of debt and how this is related to the concept of illegitimacy of debt.

FCAID is the lead implementor of the Philippine Sabbath Year Campaign and likewise a joint project with the Freedom from Debt Coalition. The general thrusts of the project is to: • • • build a strong faith-based network promote & popularize the moral dimension of the debt issue push for concrete policy reforms on the Repeal PD 1177 debt.
