Cry Debt Justice: A webinar in solidarity with the Sri Lankan people
July 21, 2022 at 10:00am - 12pm
Sri Lanka is currently in its worst economic and financial crisis yet, which has led to fuel and food shortages, power cuts, runaway inflation and deepened hunger and deprivation. But instead of support, more loans are being pushed under austerity conditions -- loans that are likely to bail out private creditors who continue to elude even limited debt relief efforts. Peoples’ protests are being silenced with teargas, water cannons, arrests, increased military surveillance and questioning of civil society leaders.
Sri Lanka is not alone in this situation. Join the discussion to learn from Sri Lanka's experience and be inspired by the people's valiant resistance!
We look forward to your participation in this conversation.
🌐 The webinar will be in English, and will be held on Zoom and live-streamed on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/apmdd.
