A public forum organised by the Ukraine Solidarity Network (U.S.) clearly demanded an end to all illegitimate debts owed by Ukraine. Financing the real human development and the reconstruction in Ukraine must imperatively take priority over debt repayments. Much of the debt was accumulated through borrowing by the oligarchs to fund neo-liberal changes, privatisations, and a wholesale looting of the country, which already caused misery among the population. Any meaningful international solidarity must say no to both Russian and NATO's imperialisms and support Ukrainian groups that are fighting the oligarchs as well as the invaders. CADTM extends its solidarity to the Ukrainian people in their struggles against illegitimate debt and the ruling oligarchs.

Economists around the world say "Yes" to the Yasuní National Park in Ecuador and "No" to oil exploitation that will destroy its biodiversity. In a month from now, Ecuador will vote in a historic referendum that may lead to suspending oil extraction and leave the remaining oil reserves in the ground in Yasuni National Park, in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon. This consultation represents a historic event. Its transcends, in the context of the environmental crisis we are experiencing, far beyond Ecuador’s borders. Economists from around the world, in a responsible exercise of their profession, argue that the most beneficial solution for Ecuador is to leave this oil in the ground—that is, vote YES to preserve Yasuní.
