CHRETIEN Todd, ROUSSET Pierre

As of March 28, France ranks fifth in global Covid-19 deaths, with 1,995 deaths (365 and 299 on Thursday and Friday respectively) and approximately 33,000 dedected coronavirus infections. As the contagion rages out of control in neighboring Italy, Spain, and Germany, French health workers have battled to treat the sick and dying. Wednesday's death of a sixteen-year-old girl has only compounded the national tragedy . President Emmanuel Macron has ordered series of belated emergency measures (...) - Epidemics, pandemics, (health, France) / Coronavirus / Covid-19 (EN, FR), Coronavirus/Covid-19 (EN), MACRON Emmanuel, Hospitals, Labor / Labour movement, Social Movements, European Union

L'épidémie grossit à la loupe les failles du pouvoir — La confusion révèle ses manquements

SALVI Ellen

Injonctions contradictoires, remerciements tardifs, accents guerriers… La communication du pouvoir jette une lumière crue sur ses insuffisances, ses schémas de pensée et sa déconnexion. En interne, certains s'inquiètent de l'image que l'exécutif renvoie de lui-même dans sa gestion de crise. On ne comprend rien. Après dix jours de confinement, et alors que le pic épidémique n'est pas encore atteint, l'exécutif multiplie les expressions et continue de parler à tort et à travers, en dissonance complète avec (...) - Situation et débats politiques (France) / Coronavirus / Covid-19 (EN, FR), Coronavirus / Covid-19 (fr), Municipales 2020 (France), MACRON Emmanuel, Crise politique/institutionnelle, Crise sanitaire (santé)

Appel de médecins à la veille du scrutin du 14 mars : « Monsieur le président, médecins, nous vous demandons le report des élections municipales »

Collectif, Médecins

Spécialistes de santé publique, urgentistes, réanimateurs, anesthésistes ou responsable de centre de prévention des infections, une quinzaine de médecins demandent à Emmanuel Macron de prendre la mesure de la situation sanitaire à laquelle ils sont confrontés. Une seule méthode pour enrayer la progression de l'épidémie : la réduction drastique des interactions sociales. Il en va de la capacité de notre système de santé à traiter les malades atteints par le Covid-19. Et de la vie de très nombreux Français !

Covid-19 pandemic: Brazil Undone — “History will not absolve Bolsonaro”

HYLTON Forrest

The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, is the only world leader widely believed not only to have Covid-19 and to have lied about it, but to have knowingly spread it to untold numbers of his followers. Time (or Veja, the country's leading news magazine) will tell, but at the very least, the circumstantial evidence is curious. Bolsonaro called on his largely evangelical base to hit the streets on 15 March to shut down Congress and the Supreme Court. Under quarantine after his return from the (...) - Epidemics, pandemics (health, Brazil) / Coronavirus / Covid-19 (EN, FR), Coronavirus/Covid-19 (EN)

Pandemic: A Left Strategy Against Coronavirus in Pakistan

ALI Zahid, JAN Ammar Ali

Concentration of crisis We are passing through one of the gravest crises faced by humanity to which no one can afford to be indifferent and neutral. It is clear that the crisis is exacerbated due to the priorities of our ruling elites, who relentlessly pursue fantasies of regional domination rather than the welfare of the public. We have tanks, missiles, even a nuclear arsenal, but do not have enough beds, ventilators and medicine for our patients. The state is in crisis, due to an (...) - Epidemics, pandemics (health, Pakistan) / Coronavirus / Covid-19 (EN, FR), Coronavirus/Covid-19 (EN), Crisis (capitalism), Class Struggle, Social Classes, Power/State, Dual power, Forms of power, Forms of struggle

Pandemic: Popular revolt, feminist mass strikes, and Covid-19 in Chile

No Borders News, PINEDA Javier

As is the case everywhere, the big news in Chile is the rapidly escalating coronavirus contagion. But just last October, Chile's neoliberal order was shaken to its core when a popular revolt exploded, detonating general strikes, occupations, and mass mobilizations. Pushed into a corner, the mainstream parties were forced to agree to hold a national referendum, scheduled for April 2020, to rewrite the Constitution, a holdover from the Pinochet dictatorship. And just two weeks ago, more than (...) - Epidemics, pandemics (health, Chile) / Women Movements, Coronavirus / Covid-19 (EN, FR), Coronavirus/Covid-19 (EN), Hospitals

Facing the coronavirus-capitalist epidemic in Italy – “Workers must not accept to put their lives at risk for the bosses' profits!”

SI Cobas

Roberto Luzzi, leader of the Italian labor union, SI Cobas , Sindicati Interaziendali Comitati di Base (Cross-industry Base Committees), explains how the compulsion for profit has transformed Italy into the most intense Covid-19 killing zone in the world. By mid March Italy has become the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemics with a dreadful progression of deaths.

India: On Covid 19 Public Health Crisis

PADS (IN)

India is passing through the second stage of the most serious health crisis in its recent history. How we respond to it as a society is crucial to mitigating the effect of COVID 19 virus on our individual health. Democracy is ultimately a system of social relationships, of everyone with everybody else that respects the twin principles of equality and individual autonomy, so that everyone becomes responsible to everyone else without the use of threat, fear, and social power.

Namibia@30

BECKER Heike

Namibia turns 30 this year. The celebration of this milestone anniversary is an opportune moment to take a close look at the developments of Namibian society and politics since the exuberance of the country's day of independence. “At midnight of 21 March 1990, all across Namibia church bells rang in the country's long-deferred national independence. Tens of thousands had gathered that balmy late summer's night in the Windhoek Athletics Stadium, soon to be renamed Independence Stadium, where (...) - Namibia / SWAPO Party (Namibia), SWAPO (Namibia), Independence, Apartheid

Namibia: “The Cleanest City in Africa”

TJIRERA Ellison

When Windhoek was selected to host the Africities 2000 Summit, then-Mayor of Windhoek Immanuel Ngatjizeko positioned the city in terms of its “cleanliness” as an attribute setting Windhoek apart and a reputational jewel to be jealously guarded. Its status as the “cleanest city in Africa” was peddled by City of Windhoek officials until Kigali snatched the “crown” from Windhoek around 2015/2016. Arguably, this status did not come by chance, but was (and is) a result of an entrenched culture of (...) - Namibia / SWAPO Party (Namibia), SWAPO (Namibia), Independence, Apartheid
