Thank you so much for your support of Jubilee USA's Liberia Call in Day. The number we originally publicized was recently, very recently, disconnected. The correct info is below.Also, Jubilee has a blog at jubileeusa.typepad.com.As the first action of our campaign, call Paul Wolfowitz October 16 or 17th and ask him to support immediate cancellation of Liberia’s debt! Ask him to live up to his word by removing delays to full and immediate debt cancellation for Liberia. Dial: [Note: The previous number we gave has been disconnected, please try the numbers below.]202-473-1000 (World Bank General Switchboard)202-458-0198 (Wolfowitz's office)202-458-0388 (Wolfowitz's office)202-473-5046 (Wolfowitz's office)202-458-2907 (Wolfowitz's office)Call In ScriptHi, My name is ---- from CITY, STATE.As Liberian president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf visits Washington, DC, I am calling to urge that Mr. Wolfowitz support immediate cancellation of Liberia’s debt so the country can use its resources for vital needs like electricity, health, and education. It is unjust and inhumane that the people of Liberia have to pay back debts that were incurred under corrupt governments, especially when the people never saw any benefit. Even more unfair is the creditor’s insistence that Liberia pay back $1.5 billion in arrears before seeing any type of debt relief. This just doesn’t make sense for a country where three-fourths of the people live on less than a $1 a day. Please use your influence to cancel Liberia’s debt immediately.
