#COVID19 #Lockdown: Transnational networking – A call by #Coview

#coview calls to connect, cooperate and work on collective, transnational answers to the worsening situation. So we have published a transnational call to build alliances, exchange and strengthen a progressive movement that does not accept authoritarian repression and calls for transnational solidarity.

Originally published by #Coview.

Dear people affected by the crisis,
dear people in solidarity,
hello to all, who are concerned about the political and social trends and developments in face of the Covid-19 pandemia,

Not long ago, Coview: social and political covid-19 Watchgroup was founded, an initiative to respond to the political and social impact of COVID-19 and the accompanying measures – digitally and on-site. By now over 200 people are connected in Coview via a decentralized, non-hierarchical horizontal organizational structure. For more Infos about basic principles check out https://coview.info/statement-grundsaetzlich/
Our work claims to be intersectional and transnational. We document, analyze, connect, thematize and challenge the status quo.

We know that many things are happening simultaneously in many countries: repression, authoritarian leadership (for example in the right to protest and assemble in public space), worsening situations for those who were already marginalized. But we also see initiatives like Coview popping up, mutual aid in solidarity, people not willing to be silenced in their political standpoint.

This is why we send this transnational call to connect, cooperate and start working on a collective, the transnational answer to the worsening situation.

We see a need for a transnational response and a need for a transnational work of all Covid-19 watchgroups and similar structures. If you are already working on a comparable project, we would like to start working together. If there is no watchgroup / similar structure in your country, please feel empowered to join Coview and/or start a watchgroup in your country/region/town/community!

Our principle is that individuals can become part of the network as individuals. There is also the possibility of structured networking with initiatives and organizations. (via the network working group) – for this purpose write us an e-mail (coview@riseup.net).
We are open to cooperation, common work, networking and joined actions.
Reference groups, informal groups or groups that organize themselves anti-hierarchically as well as communal groups and flat-sharing communities, are welcome to join and be part of Coview. Also while still upholding their existing structure and style of organization. We are open to sharing our technical resources, platforms, and tools.

Please contact us so we can together strengthen the progressive movement in the crises we are facing.
Write us an email to coview@riseup.net.

By the way: as a lot of groups and initiatives are changing their resources now towards online events. Therefore the question of location is less relevant. Because of this, we support https://quarantimes.global/ a transnational calendar project. Join in with your online events.

Here you will find the call in several languages [en / el / de / lt / da / fr / bg ] – feel free to spread it in your community, groups, organisations and networks!
