Webinar: COVID 19 & capitalism: Rights not repression

05/04/2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Already, there has been unprecedented state intervention to stablize the economic system as the impact of COVID-19 continues to unfold.
Many progressively-minded people – and parties – are championing state measures that subsidize corporations and landlords without safeguarding the well-being of workers and renters.
How do we respond to the “solutions” and “demands” that are emerging in a way that builds the confidence and combativity of the working class?
Join us for this webinar to talk about the ways in which the state has responded to COVID-19 and about the economics that underpin this particular moment.
Speakers:
  • Samuel Nithiananthan is an organizer with Peoples Defence, a leader in Toronto‚Äôs Tamil community, and an activist in the student and labour movements.
  • Alex Hunsberger is a trade unionist and decent work activist based in Toronto. He is also a member of the Spring Socialist Network.
  • Saman Tabasinejad is a member of the Executive Committee of the Iranian-Canadian Congress and an anti-war and anti-sanctions activist based in Toronto.
  • Ella Bedard is an activist with the Fight for $15 and Fairness and a member of the Spring Socialist Network.
