Interview with Sammy Gamboa from Freedom from Debt Coalition in the Philippines, an organisation conducting policy advocacy work and campaigns to realize a common framework and agenda for economic development, opposing to large-scale mining and acting for climate justice. Sammy has been involved with the organisation for several years and in several movements for social justice. We met him in Brussels and discussed some of his ideas for the shift needed in society, moving away from the exploitation of nature and social instability and inequalities.

We are proud to launch CIDSE’s new “Voices for Change” blog. This blog space is dedicated to “systemic change.” It will reflect and analyse current issues that are challenging and transforming systems such as those for producing and consuming food or energy, at their intersection with greater systems of injustice: patriarchy, racism, colonialism or capitalism. It will also bring stories of change to break out of abusive and unjust systems, however small or big the change. We look forward to contributions from the CIDSE family, partners and allies to this blog space.
