Various Drop the Debt (Annulons La Dette)
- Words: June Joseph
- Label: World Village
Imagine living in an impoverished environment, having little access to basic human needs. Obviously, despotic governments, bad policies and civil war are to blame; so, too, are the actions of the West and the loans they give to countries that can barely afford to make even the interest payments. According to the UN, each fiscal year, the world's poorest countries spend a significant amount of their annual budgets on debt repayment, money desperately needed for education and health care. Drop the Debt aims to increase awareness of this great injustice, and implores the West to cancel the debt. With global music powerhouses such as Cape Verde's Cesaria Evora, Brazil's Chico Cesar, Zimbabwe's Oliver Mtukudzi, Cameroon's Sally Nyolo and Venezuela's Soledad Bravo giving voice to debt relief, the cause has an even better chance of being heard.
