Au Sud comme au Nord, les femmes face à la crise de la dette et aux politiques d'ajustement macroéconomique

CADTM - fr - Fri, 09/03/2018 - 12:04

Le CADTM (Comité pour l'abolition des dettes illégitimes) est un réseau international qui depuis bientôt trente ans analyse la problématique des dettes illégitimes et des mesures d'ajustement macroéconomique.
La dette publique et les mesures d'austérité adoptées dans le but de réduire cette première ont très souvent des répercussions socio-économiques importantes sur les populations. Ici nous analysons ces conséquences sur une catégorie importante de la société : les femmes.
Ces politiques sont en effet (...)

Journée internationale des droits des femmes : La dette n'est pas qu'un instrument financier, elle est aussi un instrument genré

CADTM - fr - Thu, 08/03/2018 - 13:31

Partout où sont appliquées au nom de la dette les politiques d'ajustement structurel et l'austérité, elles entravent l'émancipation des femmes et détruisent les conquêtes féministes. De fait, les femmes sont les véritables créancières au niveau national et international.
Le hashtag #MeToo ne doit pas faire oublier que la lutte pour les droits des femmes commence au niveau des discriminations accrues qu'elles subissent au nom de dettes illégitimes, publiques et privées.
En effet, loin de s'attaquer à (...)

8M Manifesto: We become more when we are united. Together we are more

CADTM - en - Thu, 08/03/2018 - 09:06

Every March 8th we honour the women's alliance to struggle for our conquered rights. In the past, It was because of many women fighting together that we succeeded and got some of the rights we have today. A long genealogy of activists, suffragettes and unionist women has fought before us. Among them, those who brought the Second Spanish Republic (an alternative to the Monarchy that was abruptly ended by the Civil War in 1936 and the consequent fascist regime), those who fought in the Spanish (...)

CADTM - fr - Thu, 08/03/2018 - 08:43

The case for a household debt jubilee

CADTM - en - Wed, 07/03/2018 - 10:09

A decade since the onset of the global financial crisis, outstanding household debt stands just short of £1.6 trillion, 13 percent higher than its peak in the third quarter of 2008. £239 billion of this is unsecured consumer credit, and this has increased by nearly 20 percent in the past two years.
Meanwhile, owing to a squeeze in real incomes (due to wage stagnation, growing precarity and underemployment), and cuts to the social safety net, the resources available to households to service (...)

Évitons le dépeçage de la Belgique, coupons les ailes aux fonds vautours

Carte Blanche publiée sur le site du journal L'Écho le 6 mars 2018, signée par 37 professeur-e-s des universités francophones belges (ULG, ULB, UCL, Mons).
Les fonds vautours ne sont pas seulement inutiles, ils sont dangereux économiquement. Ils renforcent et amplifient l'instabilité économique et empêchent le redémarrage économique des États qui en sont victimes.
Les fonds vautours sont des institutions financières, domiciliées dans les paradis fiscaux, qui rachètent à très bas prix des dettes d'États (...)

The Greek left and its “Macedonian” drift or how we open the door to the fascist menace!

CADTM - en - Tue, 06/03/2018 - 08:31

So, it is a “distasteful surprise” that Thedorakis publicly rubs himself up against apologists for racism, anti-Semitism, anti- communism and the nightmare of “ethnic purity”? Undoubtedly distasteful, but not a surprise. And if the problem were only Mikis, it would not be much harm. However, since it is not just him but also several others, the problem is enormous, and the danger imminent. It is therefore time to call things by their proper name.
First truth: The Greek left, or at least a (...)

#Wethewomenjournalistsstop

CADTM - en - Mon, 05/03/2018 - 09:10

We, the women journalists from dozens of media and communication agencies, press offices, and, in general, workers from media and journalism companies, support the feminist general strike that has been called for this coming March 8. In addition, we urge all our female co-workers to join the mobilizations to the extent of their possibilities and circumstances.
As women workers, we all suffer from the same sexism that exists in other sectors of the labour market – precariousness, job (...)
