Often, in the face of relentless predatory assaults of global capitalism we tend to forget that the key to victory is a steadfast refusal to stop fighting. And yes, struggle has been in the core of our existence. Thanks to your support, CADTM and its friends have been able to elicit a positive judgment from the Belgian Supreme Court against the vulture fund, NML Capital. We hope that one day we would be able to bury all kinds of rapacious vulture funds deep down under the earth. The banks are at the core of the capitalist system. Therefore, any attempt to transform capitalism or even forcing any meaningful progressive reform within it would require handling the banking system effectively. In a thought provoking article, Eric Toussaint, Patrick Saurin & Jeanne Chevalier discuss measures that a popular government should take towards banks.

The vitality of Armenia’s civil unrest - deposing Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan, infamous for his totalitarian rule and unbridled corruption - must be channeled into a struggle for liberation from the shackles of capitalism. Armen Abagyan speaks about Armenia’s unfinished revolution. Aznague Ali of ATTAC/CADTM Morocco discusses the protest movements in Morocco and the role of the political left in mobilization against neoliberal policies We also bring you articles on the sale of Uganda’s lakes to capitalist interests, BRICS in Africa, Sino-American rivalry, land-grabbing and the financialization of agricultural land in Brazil, etc.

And,last but not the least! We invite you to CADTM’s Summer school to be held from 7-9 September at Namur, Belgium. We can assure you that it will provide us with a great chance to learn about and discuss developments in the international situation regarding debt and talk to activists from several parts of the world. Why delay? Block your dates and send your inscriptions now!
