A very happy, progressive and fruitful new year 2023 to all of our readers, sympathisers, friends, colleagues, collaborators and to all the oppressed peoples of the Earth! We aspire for it to be rife with successful struggles against oppression and exploitation, for the protection of the environment, and, of course, against illegitimate debt. Beginning with an open invitation to networks, organisations, and social and civil society movements in the South and the North, this year's first newsletter announces that a worldwide counter-summit to the IMF-WB Annual Meetings will take place in Marrakech, Morocco, from October 9 to 15, this year.

CADTM welcomes the European Parliament's adoption of a resolution on January 19, 2023, denouncing the Moroccan regime's egregious human rights breaches. Nevertheless, we continue to campaign in order to secure the freedom of our fellow travellers Omar Radi and others imprisoned by this totalitarian government.

The initial mobilisation against the neoliberal assault on the French pension system by the Macron regime was significant. It was one of the largest days of protest in France in the past 30 years, 2 million people took to the streets creating super mobilization in "middle size" cities. The next general mobilisation is slated to take place on January 31, 2023.

The authors of Our Lives Are Worth More Than Their Credits, Camille Bruneau and Christine Vanden Daelen, examine the idea of illegitimate debt and relate it to resource extraction, neo-colonialism, and patriarchy. They conclude by describing the feminist countermeasures required to prevent illegitimate debt.

Camille Bruneau reveals the World Bank's gender-related duplicity in her chapter on this organisation. The Bank, despite its frequent references to women's empowerment, actually advocates for austerity measures and pursues a neoliberal agenda in support of capital that imposes and upholds patriarchal oppression. For instance, the World Bank's microcredit initiatives, public budget cuts, and extractivist programmes all negatively affect how women live.

Sushovan Dhar speaks with Eric Toussaint about the debt situation and the banking crisis in India. We also present articles on the forthcoming debt crisis and the fate of nations like Pakistan, Ghana, and Sri Lanka; the climate crisis; the World Economic Forum; human rights; and inequality.
