Strike Debt! Debt resistance movement!

Check this out:

Instead of lamenting how things are these people are trying to change things. Check out their website and donate. To Hell with corporate banking and the misery it spreads!

 "We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals' debt—instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.
We're beginning this effort with The People's Bailout, a variety show and telethon in NYC on November 15. All proceeds will go directly to buying people's debt and cancelling it."

For every $1 donated, we are able to buy and abolish $20 worth of debt.

  • Got $10 to spare? We'll liberate someone from $200 of debt.
  • Throw us twenty bucks and we'll obliterate $400 of a struggling American's debt.
  • $100? We'll take the weight of *TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS* off someone's back.


All contributions go to The Rolling Jubilee Fund, a non-profit 501(c) (4) organization with the exclusive mission of buying and abolishing debt. 100% of the money raised will go to the process of buying and abolishing debt (a process that includes some associated costs such as paperwork, accounting, and legal fees). The volunteers managing the fund receive no compensation. In the interest of transparency, a full accounting of funds received and spent will be reported on our website.
