A few links that might be useful for anyone else trying to get their heads around the fast-changing situation. To start off with, commentary from a few libertarian/anarchist perspectives:
Coronavirus and the Ill Health of Capitalism (Anarchist Communist Group)
No Security in Times of Crisis (Plan C)
Pandemic Demands and Mutual Aid (Plan C)
When Every Community is Ground Zero: Pulling Each Other Through a Pandemic (Mutual Aid Disaster Relief)
While the lockdown continues, and traditional forms of physical gatherings and so on are inadvisable, phone zap/email blast-type actions are likely to be one of the main ways we can act sort-of collectively. The IWW’s TEFL workers union has called for a coronavirus week of action, targeting institutions like the British council, Wetherspoons staff have been asking for support with their demand for sick pay, Parkdale Organize have called for a phone/email zap in support of tenants facing landlord intimidation and eviction threats, and given the terrible health conditions that exist in jails generally, there’s likely to be a steady stream of zaps like the ones that have been called for Santa Rita jail and Macomb CI in Michigan – keep up with the Incarcerated Workers’ Organizing Committee or Fight Toxic Prisons to hear more about those.
Stay safe out there and take care of each other.
