DEBT PROTEST: A CAMPAIGN calling for an audit of Greece’s public debt could spread to Ireland, the chairman of Irish justice group Afri has said.
Irish academics, writers and activists offered their support yesterday to the Greek campaign calling for an independent and international audit commission to examine the country’s debt.
Campaigners want to find out how the debt was incurred and what the money was spent on.
The campaign has garnered international support from notable figures including linguistics professor and writer Noam Chomsky, Indian economics professor CP Chandrashekhar and film-maker Ken Loach.
Politicians from Ecuador, where a similar audit in 2008 led its government to default on some of the country’s debt, have also lent their support to the campaign.
In Ireland, the campaign has also been supported by Afri.
