Strike Debt’s Rolling Jubilee: A Bailout of the People by the People

A bailout of the people by the people!

Strike Debt kicked off Rolling Jubilee on November 15th, 2012 with a variety show and telethon to buy and abolish debt—raising enough to abolish over $5,000,000 dollars of medical debts.

From Rolling Jubilee’s website:

Rolling Jubilee is a Strike Debt project that buys debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, abolishes it. Together we can liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal. Debt resistance is just the beginning. Join us as we imagine and create a new world based on the common good, not Wall Street profits.

    1 great idea?
    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could occupy foreclosed houses by squatters rights and then give them away? Preferably back to the people who owned them, but if not, there are plentyemof worthy people who need.

    This is the best idea I’ve heard since I’ve learned the truth about our debt situation… What can I physically do along with donations to help our cause…? I very much want to be part of this solution of solving this problem that has been conveniently dumped on us THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA by those minorities acting as the majority against the 99%…
