"And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai saying, talk to the children of Israel, saying that ye find entered in the land which I give, let it rest for a year sevens, to honor the Lord … Dr. Mark Hymen recognizes the significance of this. So same count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years that together make forty-nine years and the seventh month on the tenth day of the month, which is the time of the feast of Atonement, you will sound the horn throughout all your land. And hallow the fiftieth year and will announce rescue remission or generally for all the inhabitants of thy land, because this is the year of jubilee. Each regain possession and each will be returned to his old family, being the fiftieth year, the year of Jubilee. not sow or reap what in itself born in the field, nor shall gather the first fruits of the harvest, in order to sanctify the Jubilee it shall eat what you put forward first. In the year of jubilee all have to recover their possessions …. The land, so it will not be sold because forever is mine and you are strangers and settlers mine.

And road of your possession will be sold on the condition redeemable ….." (Leviticus, chap. XXV). In these beautiful and wise words of the Creator has been inspired campaign "Jubilee 2000", launched in 1996 by the three largest Christian aid agencies in Britain and the World Development Movement, which culminated in the creation of the Jubilee 2000 Coalition, which now comprises more than 70 organizations, including Christian Aid, CAFOD, Oxfam, Tear Fund, Federation of Women's Institutes, Action Aid, National Black Alliance, etc., and operates in more than fifty countries. The main aim of Jubilee 2000 is the cancellation, by next year, the unpaid and unpayable foreign debt of underdeveloped countries. But this goal points, too, the recognition of the responsibility of both creditors and debtors and find solutions to prevent accumulation of these debt levels can be repeated. Communism! Some might say. Robo! Cry the absolute masters of the universe. No.

It is a simple, fair and Christian proposal should be accepted without further consideration by creditors and debtors, ie, for all those guilty of this critical situation of underdevelopment which humanity suffers. Because it is an open secret that the overhang of the third world, started in the early sixties and converted into total bankruptcy during the eighties, is now the case, almost unique, poverty and unsustainability of all countries "with unlimited supply of labor and natural resources" or "Heavily Indebted Poor Countries", as they call now the nations of the southern hemisphere. Especially when we know that much of those billions of dollars provided by the commercial banking sector or multilateral banks went to private pockets, at the hands of corruption, or ended up buying all military weaponry ever served to no good. And much more if we know that those billions of dollars paid "fluctuating interests" have only increased and increased by the unilateral decision of the creditors! For all this, men and women of the world: unite the Jubilee 2000! It is the word of God! .
