Nick Dearden

Director, Jubilee Debt Campaign

Nick Dearden is a campaigner on global justice issues, especially the global economy and financial system. He is Director of Jubilee Debt Campaign.

Jubilee Debt Campaign was created to challenge the enormous and unjust debts which rich countries and their banks created in the developing world, and which still keep the people of many countries locked in a debtor’s prison today.

We work for the cancellation of unjust developing country debts and the creation of a just financial system which puts people first.

Only by the creation of a radically different financial system can we hope to wipe out poverty, encourage strong and democratic societies and foster a more equal and peaceful planet.
