COVID-19: A Year On

Watch the Progressive International’s assessment on the drastic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

On the anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is easy to feel like everything has changed. But it hasn’t.

The past year is remarkable not for the lessons that we learned, but for the determination of governments, philanthropists, and pharmaceutical corporations to preserve a broken status quo.

There are only two choices. One path leads us backwards — to a planet of neglect, where the global rich shield themselves with the bodies of the global poor. The other leads to life — to a planet of care, equality, and popular sovereignty.

Since the anniversary of COVID-19, the Progressive International have been writing a ‘Manifesto for Human Life’ — and asking the public to join us.
