    On Monday, the Supreme Court hears arguments between Argentina and holdouts who refused two debt restructuring deals after Argentina defaulted on its debts in 2001. The Supreme Court Justices will determine if predatory hedge fund, NML Capital can obtain information from US Banks that reveal Argentina's holdings in order to target those assets for debt payments. The Obama Administration is siding with Argentina in the case. In the summer, the Supreme Court will also decide if it will hear a much broader case between Argentina and the hedge funds that impacts extreme poverty, official US debt policy and country debt restructuring.

    On the Supreme Court decision declaring the Reproductive Health Law constitutional

    Akbayan Partylist welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the constitutionality of the Reproductive Health Law. While the ruling was not the complete victory many hoped for -- with some portions of the law being stricken down -- it nonetheless remains a historic triumph for women, for the poor and marginalized, and for the Filipino nation. It is a remarkable advance against ignorance and inequality, and a clear victory for social reform and progressive thinking. Now, the people have an important policy tool to wage the struggle against poverty and bring about the sustained and comprehensive development which has so far eluded our country. Now, millions of Filipino women and their families will have another chance at achieving a better quality of life.

    The annual International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank meetings are focusing on the role of high debt burdens in both global economic recovery and increasing inequality. At the onset of the meetings, the G24 released an IMF statement noting that the IMF's failure to implement quota reform and the outcome of the US Supreme Court Argentina/NML Capital case impacts global inequality.
      
    "The G24 knows that emerging markets have a lot to lose if the Supreme Court decides in favor of the hedge funds and against Argentina," stated Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of Jubilee USA Network, a religious development coalition.
      
    The G24's broader disappointments stem from the failure in implementing the 2010 IMF Quota Reform agreement.

    Debt Restructuring Process Discussed by IMF and G20

    The IMF released the World Economic Outlook Report ahead of the annual IMF meetings. The report forecasts improvement for several advanced and emerging economies, including the United States, but notes that the recovery is uneven and vast inequality still continues. One of the principle issues the report reviews is how sustainable the debt loads are for both G20 and developing countries.

    "The IMF acknowledges that investors are still concerned with unsustainable debt loads in developing economies," noted Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of Jubilee USA Network, a religious coalition focused on the impacts of the financial crisis on poor people. "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know what the IMF reports. In a post financial crisis world, the rich have gotten richer and more people have been pushed into extreme poverty."

    " Quand le dernier arbre sera abattu, la dernière rivière empoisonnée, le dernier poisson
    capturé, alors vous découvrirez que l'argent ne se mange pas. "

    Sagesse indienne

    La vallée de Tollense, et rivière
    A l'origine de l'art de la guerre
    Naissance des armures
    Groupes armés en dorure
    Déjà, il y a 3200 ans
    En devenir, étaient les armements
    Pour la règle, en premier massacre
    Avant d'autres, encore plus âcres
    La guerre est une espèce invasive
    L'apprentissage en est ivre
    De pays à pays
    Cela n'est jamais fini
    C'est une affaire de comportement
    Celui de l'être humain est dément
    Et toutes les espèces invasives
    Colportées par les transports
    Et sur toutes les rives
    Et de port en port
    Mais il n'y a pas d'état originel
    La nature est changeante et toujours nouvelle
    La plupart des disparitions d'espèces
    Cela est surprenant, yes
    Ont d'abord lieu sur des îles
    Et ce à 80 pour cent, le processus file
