UK banks and the debt crisis

To mark the 30th anniversary of the Mexican debt default back in August 1982, we've unearthed this fantastic video on British banks' role in the debt crisis. Put together in 1986 by women's video collective Cinestra as part of War on Want's pioneering campaign Profits Out of Poverty, it explains how the big four high street banks (Nat West, Barclays, Lloyds and Midland) were responsible for fuelling the debt crisis that condemned millions in Latin America to poverty. Old school and brilliant - watch and learn!
