The world has changed utterly. We can't go back to how things were, but how things will be is up to us. Left to the governments of the world, we will be forced to pay for this crisis just as we did after the banks collapsed in 2008.
Never let a good crisis go to waste
That's the motto of the capitalist system, but it should be ours too. Crises are were change comes from, and if we can capitalise on this quickly we could build a movement that can harness the enthusiasm for change and the disgust at how this has been dealt with.
A conference in October
Some of us have been discussing on Facebook the idea of a conference in October to bring together the best speakers, thinkers, and activists to discuss what we do next and how.
We're holding a Zoom meeting (video conference) online on Friday at 11am. Everyone is welcome to join, and nothing has been decided yet. The meeting will last 40 minutes and we'll have a general discussion about how this conference should look. Bring your ideas! Sign up to this event for an email reminder half an hour before the conference.
