U.S. Treasury building surrounded by chain of debt

June 18, 1999
Washington, DC
- In another anti-capitalist demo today marking the worldwide June 18th day of direct action, 600 demonstrators formed a human chain around the U.S. Treasury Department. This action was coordinated by Jubilee 2000, which calls on First World nations to cancel debts owed by Third World nations.

The crowd was boisterous and participants chanted and sang and even danced.

Pictures will be online at within several days.
