The World Assembly of the CADTM network held at Dakar, Senegal from 13-16 November was a great success despite several limitations owing to the COVID crisis. The global socio-political and the economic context was thoroughly analysed and debated paving the way for a concrete assessment of our tasks. The political and the organisational charter was also amended to keep up with the contemporary demands. We present our readers with an initial report of the event along with other reports and documents presented and adopted in this Assembly.

The Assembly was preceded by a feminist seminar that largely discussed the issue of women’s oppression through micro-credit and other means. This was followed by the General Assembly of CADTM Africa. Overall, the nine days of engagements in Dakar boosted our capacity to fight against illegitimate debt while contributing to internationalist and feminist answers to the multidimensional crisis of capitalism.

The disastrous impacts of neo-liberalism is more pronounced than ever; more so, during the current pandemic. We present our readers with the arguments for the Global Collective Commons vs Big Pharma. The demand on ‘Health for All’ demanding an end to patents is very important at this critical juncture. Eric Toussaint analyses the history of globalisation and its impacts from the days of Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan until today.

We observe that the G20 summit held in Washington DC last October miserably failed to come up with any effective solutions to deal with the debt crisis. CADTM calls for the immediate replacement of such institutions by an united front of Southern countries for the immediate suspension of debt service.

Also find intriguing articles on the global economy and ecology, Pakistan debt, the Afghan crisis, corporate impunity, Mozambique woes, justice for Thomas Sankara, the crimes of the WB-IMF, etc.
