We knew our system was broken. But the Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced the cruelty of the global economy, and deepened the visceral injustices of our societies.
Before the virus stuck, the effect of climate catastrophe and obscene inequality meant that millions were already living in multiple crises. Now, as the pandemic wreaks an untold impact, we know that it is those who are most vulnerable—whether from their inability to access healthcare, or because of their economic precarity—who bear the heaviest burden.
In times of crisis, it is always the poorest, the most oppressed, and those under occupation, who are most affected. Our only recourse is to amplify the calls for justice ringing from every corner of the globe. The time to build the future we deserve is now, and international solidarity is the tool we need to begin its construction.
