|Here we go again. Please loving and udnerstanding and justice hungry friends? please make the call?
CALL Speaker Pelosi today AND ASK HER TO BE A CHAMPION ON IMF REFORM! Call her Washington office at (202) 225-0100.
When you speak to the receptionist, you can say:
"My name is ___________ and I'm calling from _______________[city/state]. In the conference committee on the supplemental, Speaker Pelosi has the power to be a champion for reform of the IMF's policies which have limited access to health care and education in poor nations and poor country debt relief. I urge Speaker Pelosi to include language in the conference report that ensures IMF agreements do not impose contractionary, recession-worsening policies as they currently are doing, which is resulting in rising unemployment and the closure of hospitals and schools. Thank you."

ASK SENATOR KERRY TO BE A LEADER ON INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (IMF) REFORM!
Right now, the Senate is considering attaching $100 billion in funding for the IMF to the wartime supplemental appropriations bill moving through Congress. But Congress should not give the IMF a blank check. If the IMF funding request moves ahead, Congress should take the opportunity to require significant IMF reform and to require the IMF to allocate a portion of its vast gold reserves for expanded poor country debt relief.
As a Massachusetts resident, we need your help! As Chair of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Kerry has the unique power to be a champion for IMF gold sales for debt relief and reform of the IMF’s conditionality policies in poor nations. Senator Kerry has been a long time leader on issues of poor country debt relief, HIV/AIDS, and global health and other issues, so playing such a role should come naturally to him.
But Senator Kerry needs to hear from you! Call Senator Kerry NOW and urge him be a leader on IMF reform!
Call Senator Kerry's office at 202----- and ask to speak to his staffer who works on IMF issues.
"My name is ___________ and I'm calling from _______________[city/MA]. I am calling to ask Senator Kerry to be a leader on IMF (International Monetary Fund) reform. As Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, he has the power to be a champion for IMF gold sales for expanded poor country debt relief and to call for reform of the IMF’s conditionality policies which have limited access to health care and education in poor nations. I urge Senator Kerry to speak with Senate and Appropriations Committee leadership in support of IMF debt relief and real IMF reform. Thank you."
URGENT ACTION ALERT:
TELL THE SENATE: "NO BLANK CHECK FOR THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND!"
At the G-20 Summit in London in April, the U.S. committed to provide $100 billion in new resources to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to respond to the global recession. Given the IMF's dubious track record in supporting poor countries to achieve equitable economic growth, Congress should take a careful, deliberate approach to approving this funding. As part of its consideration, Congress should require significant IMF reform and the allocation of a portion of planned IMF gold sales for expanded poor country debt relief.
However, without a single oversight hearing, the IMF funding package may be slipped into an $84 billion emergency spending bill moving through the Senate at the 11th hour this week!
Congress has previously rushed through financial bailouts without adequate safeguards or oversight, and should not repeat the same mistake. With such large sums and broad new authorities proposed, Congress must ensure open and transparent debate on the role and policies of the IMF. Hastily attaching IMF funding to a fast-moving emergency spending bill will not allow for the perspectives of poor countries and civil society advocates to be heard.
Please contact your Senators immediately: the Senate Appropriations Committee will mark-up the wartime supplemental bill on the afternoon of Thursday, May 14. It is at this time that an amendment may be offered to attach $100 billion for the IMF. Call your Senator today via the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge him/her to oppose an amendment to attach IMF funding to the wartime supplemental. Instead, Congress should hold hearings on IMF reform, support gold sales for debt relief, and require real IMF reform in exchange for any new funding from the US.
Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Senator's office.
"My name is ___________ and I'm calling from _______________[city/state]. I am calling to ask Senator ___________ to support an open and transparent review of funding for the International Monetary Fund. I am concerned that the Senate may rush to approve funding for the IMF without the oversight necessary to ensure this funding will be used effectively. IMF policies have undermined poor countries ability to provide health and education to their citizens, and funding should not be approved until these concerns are addressed. I urge Senator ____________ to speak with Senate and Appropriations Committee leadership in support of an open, transparent and deliberate review process before funding is approved. Thank you."

|I need your help
I know that this is annoying for many of you, and some of you have all ready signed, but I am closer than I have ever been to reaching a major organizing goal, and every single person counts right now
Let me explain.I had a MAJOR role in designing Jubilee's What's on your heart campaign. In order for the campaign to have any affect, we must get at least 10,000 signers. As of yesterday afternoon we have 8, 514. That means we need less than 1500
This is the closest I have ever come to actually acheiving a campaign goal like in the two years I have ever organzied
On a personal note, this campaign is extremely meaningful to me as its the first I've worked on that i had any role in designign, and I had a huge role in this. I NEED THIS WIN. On a very personal level. We have other better plansto get there, but if we lose this I won't be able to handle it, so I'm asking you as my friends to please help us get thereSO I am outright begging you to sign if you haven't, and regardless to forward it to everyone you know. 1500 is a tiny number and I know I can reach it.
Please Click on the link and help
