Third World Debt: Campaign's unremitting pressure forced the hand of government

The aid agencies, the devel- opment movement, pop stars and ordinary people came together to campaign for debt relief. Concern had been growing throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In 1996 many of those campaigning for change launched the Jubilee 2000 coalition, named after the Jubilee Law in the Old Testament which dictated that every 50 years land and animals were to rest, all property was to be restored and all debts cancelled. And poor people could be given a new start.

Monitor: All the News of the World - International comment on the G8 measures to ease Third World debt

WHAT IS required on the part of the G8 is to undertake a comprehensive exercise involving writing off debt. Only thus can the bloodletting of the economies of the Third World countries be stopped. Few would disagree with the G8 demand that the money saved on debt payments be used for improvements in basic social areas like health, education, and poverty reduction. Money spent on these sectors is in fact an investment bound to contribute to the development of the economy. Similarly, economic good conduct that requires tightening of belts and good governance, is something that the governments in the Third World are badly in need of. The fact that Russia has been denied any further debt relief until it has implemented the necessary reforms, should be enough to convince the Third World debt relief seekers that the G8 means business.

BORIS YELTSIN in Cologne yesterday was a metaphor for Russia today: unstable but still standing. He stumbled from the aeroplane, clinging first to his wife and then - sweeping aside the flunkies strategically deployed to prop him up - to Gerhard Schroder, and held him in a bear hug in the manner of a boxer attempting to stay upright.
