__________
We Must Be Internationalists
[[link removed]]

_Sam Lowry_ / Mutiny (London)

Only an internationalist response to the unfolding pandemic of
Covid-19 can resolve a fundamentally international crisis.

__________
A FEMINIST INTERNATIONAL
[[link removed]]

_Victoria Furtado, Ndeye Fatou Kane, Kerstin Wolter, Cinzia
Arruzza, and Radhika Menon_ / Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (Berlin)

It might seem out of date to talk about new forms of
internationalism. Yet, against all odds, strong local, as well as
transnational movements, have developed.

__________
African Liberation Day
[[link removed]]

People's Dispatch (New Delhi)

Kambale Musavuli of the Pan-Africanism Today Secretariat talks to
Justice Henaku of the Socialist Forum of Ghana on the significance of
African Liberation Day for the African continent, the African world
and the entire world.

__________
PHILIPPINES: SOCIALIST SOLUTIONS
[[link removed]]

_Sonny Melencio_ / Ang Masa (Quezon City)

Every decisive political question is decided by force, and the only
way to do this is to consolidate our ranks and mount crippling actions
that mobilize millions of exploited and oppressed classes.

__________
ITALY: ECON-APOCALYPSE
[[link removed]]

_Riccardo Bellofiore_ / MR Online (New York)

For a while, we can go back to living as before, but after that, the
same virus or others return even stronger. This is the pessimistic
hypothesis. The optimistic hypothesis is that we don’t forget: that
we realize that the virus is like a huge negative technological shock,
therefore on the supply side, _which can only completely change the
way of life, the type of demand, of transportation, of consumption._

__________
India: The Return of Socialism?
[[link removed]]

_Binoy Viswam_ / Frontline (Mumbai)

The time has come for various streams of the global socialist movement
to put their heads together and shape a new world of hope.

__________
NETHERLANDS: FUTURE OF ESSENTIAL WORKERS
[[link removed]]

_Karin Astrid Siegmann_ / Global Labour University

While essential workers keep the cogs of societies oiled and turning,
most of them remain underpaid and underappreciated.

__________
UK: The Food System
[[link removed]]

_Benjamin Selwin_ / Le Monde diplomatique (Paris)

The UK’s current food system fails to deliver the goods. A system of
state-supported community restaurants, connected to regional farms and
alternatives-to-meat production facilities, could begin fixing it.

__________
WORD FROM KENYA AND NIGERIA
[[link removed]]

_Nyambura Kamau and Lai Brown_ / Review of African Political Economy
(London)

Lack of water is rampant in Kenya. In Nigeria, many women face a
triple attack.

__________

PALESTINE AFTER TWO-STATE
[[link removed]]

_Yvonne Ridley_ / Middle East Monitor (London)

Elections, a new leadership and BDS are pivotal for Palestine.

__________
GLOBAL CRISIS, GLOBAL SOLIDARITY: NEW BIWEEKLY LIVESTREAM 
[[link removed]]

Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (Berlin)

"Global Crisis, Global Solidarity" is a livestream on the first and
third Wednesday of every month with guests from around the
world discussing the current health crisis, but also its economic and
political implications and the way forward for the international
Left.
