Collective Care Is Our Best Weapon against COVID-19

From Outside the Circle

While “social distancing” is a necessary tool to help stop the spread of this virus, it will only be effective if it’s grounded in an ethics and practice of social solidarity and collective care. COVID-19 clearly demonstrates that only by deeply looking out for each other — acting as if everyone’s life has inherent worth and is at risk; as if the health of one is the health of all — will we actually be able to lessen the amount of sickness and death, not to mention the emotional weight on us all. Unless everyone cooperates, the virus exponentially spreads.

The Ex-Worker #74

From Crimethinc.

The COVID–19 crisis presents both extreme dangers and opportunities. As our lives are threatened by a new virus, our freedom is menaced by authoritarians intent on using this opportunity to set new precedents for state intervention and control. On the other hand, the collapse of the global capitalist economy and unprecedented social crisis are opening possibilities for refusal and resistance that we could not have imagined even a month ago.

Announcement re: the Montreal 2020 bookfair

We're inviting you to share imaginative ideas with us. How can we take or make, and then share, space to be together? Are there novel ways to dialogue about ideas, play, grieve, make art and music, offer care, show solidarity, dance, and so on, that remind ourselves we're still here, we're still strong--ways that might allow some of us to gather at a "safe" distance in person in Montreal and/or others to engage in highly participatory long-distance ways, including physically in their own locales at the same time?

Coronavirus and Mutual Aid- Nowadays we are living in a common History

from Void Network

We are facing a pernicious virus which terrifies the world. To comfort our anxiety, we say to ourselves, that if we take precautions, we will survive. In the meantime, we try to reduce the hours we watch television. In fact, watching the news has become an essential activity to get through the day. Our traumas from the fake news, and our lack of trust in the media, have been replaced by a deeper wound, that of the constant briefing on a pandemic affecting us all.

The Pandemics of Capital

The Pandemics of Capital

It’s difficult to write a text like this one right now. In the current context, in which coronavirus has busted – or soon threatens to – the living conditions of many of us, the only thing you want to do is go out to the street and set everything ablaze, with a mask on if needed. That’s what it deserves.

We Talked with a Doctor About Coronavirus

From IGD

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we spoke with Frank, an ER doctor in the Northeast, who also is involved with the autonomous anti-capitalist space, Woodbine, about the coronavirus, how medical workers are dealing with the stress of the pandemic, the State’s response to the outbreak, and how we can respond.

Report from Greece on the Corona-Virus Dystopian Reality

from anarchists worldwide

While in Greece “states of exception” have not been uncommon –on the contrary, more or less we have been in an extraordinary, emergency regime of extreme austerity and repression due to the “debt crisis” since 2010– the recent biopolitical management of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic by the government seems to be increasingly authoritarian.
