Description: Anti globalisation demonstration in Prague at international meeting with IMF , World Bank & major industrial nations Sept 26 2000 . Left : Kathleen Bryn , Great Britain , ex missionary , ( 73 ) . Peggy Fitzgerald , Great Britain , catholic , ( 73 ) . Picture taken during Jubilee 2000 demonstration . Bryn : " For twenty years Ive lived in Africa as a missionary . I have seen the horrible consequences the debts have on third world countries with my own eyes . Every development is killed at the roots . Investments are not made . Every day 19 , 000 children die because money meant for them is used to pay off the debts owed to the rich western countries . This wooden cross symbolizes the death of these poor children . " Fitzgerald : " As a catholic its my duty to help my fellow man . The worlds richest countries should do the same and cancel the debts owed to them . Most poor countries arent even able to pay the interest rates . I spend 24 hours in a coach to demonstrate here for only one morning . In two hours were going back . A weary trip , indeed . But its worth it . Cancel the debts !
