Five theses on the #coronavirus

Finland. March 18, 2020. Like during any crisis, when hit by an epidemic the society is forced to choose its direction where to go. Do we tighten control or do we try to overcome the crisis by building a more sustainable society based on responsibility and solidarity? To us antifascists, feminists and anticapitalists the answer is clear: sharing the burden of the Corona virus evenly is the only sustainable way to push back against the epidemic on all levels of society, and mutual aid is a key part to efficiently mitigate epidemic. This is why we have collected five theses about the social and political nature of the epidemic and about initiatives, which could take us beyond the crisis towards a free, equal and ecologic society founded on solidarity, as opposed to just new series of financial and health crises and states of emergency.

Author Shane Burley on far right speakers that came to #Finland: “They desperately want to create a cross-European alliance to focus on the white race”

On 6th of April 2019, an international far right conference named Awakening took place in Finland.
