Friends of the Earth Canada joins with its international counterparts in saying:
The COVID-19 crisis is a wake up call for system change. It can only be tackled with peoples’ sovereignty and environmental, social, gender and economic justice.
Our actions now will shape what comes after this crisis.
This is a moment to reaffirm hope, by nurturing and strengthening new emancipatory and ecological paradigms, centred around justice and the sustainability of life, and a new relationship with care work.
Internationalist solidarity across movements and borders is key, as we build our collective response to this crisis, organizing and mobilizing our communities, organizations and movements to strengthen our own initiatives and fight for our demands.
