Safety through solidarity in the time of covid-19 –  A Roadmap from JVP-NYC

This manifesto/roadmap comes from Jewish Voice for Peace members in New York City, one of the epicentres of the covid-19 pandemic.

it affirms that:

  • People are not dying of just the coronavirus. People are dying because they lack health care, living wages, and housing. People are dying because of white supremacy, capitalism, and patriarchy.
  • All the intersecting social justice movements of the past many decades have prepared us for this crisis
  • We must mourn for the dead and fight like hell for the living.

    Release all people from jail? Really? Abolish the Police Service?
    All a bit ultra-leftist. This isn’t a realistic road map…..

  • JanP says:

    John Webster, it did not say abolish the police service- read it properly. Its about shifting resources from war to peace. And about moving from suppression to democracy. Or are you frightened of that?

    in the UK we are having to let prisoners out. this is because of the virus and its killing prisoners and wardens. It seems though our government and the Trump government have a lot in common. Our health staff are dying and they dont have sufficient ppe. They are been told to basically stay quiet by our government as its political. Why should they stay quiet ? it is not right. They should be teste and protected.
