from their site:

Strike Debt is an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street

current initiatives:

rolling jubilee..

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt — instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal. All proceeds go directly to buying and canceling people’s debt.

first heard about it via Astra Taylor.. then  (from data & society databite #39 – Laura Hanna)
