Petição a favor do Haiti

Enquanto o Haiti recupera da sua catástrofe, por favor trabalhe para assegurar o cancelamento imediato da sua dívida externa, no valor de 1bilião de US dólares e garanta que o apoio humanitário de emergência às vítimas do terramoto será sob a forma de donativos e não como empréstimos, assinando a seguinte petição


Petition text:

As Haiti rebuilds from this disaster, please work to secure the immediate cancellation of Haiti’s $1 billion debt and ensure that any emergency earthquake assistance is provided in the form of grants, not debt-incurring loans.

Haiti needs a sustained international effort as it seeks to recover from this earthquake. The current outpouring of support is encouraging, and now we need to cancel Haiti’s debt so the country can start its recovery without the burden of debts it won’t be able to pay. In addition we must be vigilant that new aid doesn’t come in the form of loans that would create new debt for Haiti.
But here and now, there is a very clear goal: let’s get rid of this crippling debt.

Thank you,
