Carvell Wallace, “Trying to Parent My Black Teenagers Though Protest and Pandemic,” New York Times Magazine, June 21, 2020.
From a youth activist in the Philippines:

“The COVID-19 pandemic is baring the need for global solidarity against militarization and austerity. In taking up the fight against the deep footprint of U.S. imperialism, here and abroad, our movements will make each other stronger.”
We are part of the cure covid network of volunteers, the volunteers arrested when distributing relief operations were our partners in our relief operations too and could have easily been us arrested. We also work with the organization Kadamay since the urban poor are one of the most affected sectors by the climate crisis.
