Por si os interesa darle seguimiento, en UK están pidiendo la cancelación de la deuda de Filipinas y apoyando la auditoria de la deuda allí (es uno de los primeros países en el que se inició un proceso de auditoría ciudadana de la deuda) … se puede investigar qué deuda tiene Filipinas con España.

> Hi everyone,
> Following the devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) we have developed a petition with Freedom from Debt Coalition and Jubilee South (Asia Pacific Movement on Debt and Development) calling for the Philippines debt to be cancelled. The text of the petition is below. It is addressed to international lenders generally, so covers the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, as well as governments (and even private lenders, though harder to get to them). Philippines government external debt payments are $8 billion every year, more than 20% of government revenue.
> It would be fantastic if others want to use the petition on your own websites. If you are not able to do that, you could also publicise the page we have put it on. This includes a tick box for where will will share the email addresses of people who want with the debt justice campaign in their country (ie, you!).

> If you do start promoting the petition through your own site, do let us know so we can keep track of numbers of signatories.
> We will start working on other activities and plans to hand the petition in to the World Bank and Asian Development Bank. Let me know if you would like to join a skype call to discuss other things we could do.
> Thanks!

> To: Jim Kim, President of the World Bank, Takehiko Nakao, President of the Asian Development Bank and other international lenders
> We urgently call for the cancellation of debts claimed from the Philippines. The Philippines urgently needs resources to pay for relief and reconstruction in the face of the massive destruction, displacement and loss of lives from Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) - the strongest typhoon to have made landfall in recorded history. The countries of the global North owe a far greater climate debt to the Philippines because of their accumulated excessive greenhouse gas emissions which are causing climate change.
> We join Philippine movements and peoples organizations in opposing loans from international financial institutions for relief and reconstruction. This will only lead to exacerbating the debt burden of the Philippines.
> We support the call for a comprehensive audit of Philippines debts - including their origins, how they were spent, and the impact of the projects and policies financed by these debts -- that will lead to ending illegitimate and unsustainable debt.
