To Plan B and Beyond
25 October 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30 BST
Covid infection rates are soaring to over 52,000 a day, but the government is refusing to take action. The UK now has one of the highest infection rates in the entire world, with the ONS estimating that 1 in 60 people in England are infected.
In his press conference, Health Secretary Sajid Javid insisted that deaths are ‘mercifully low’ and that he ‘doesn’t believe’ that the NHS is in crisis. Whatever Javid claims, the reality is that health workers are sounding the alarm and deaths are the highest they have been since March this year. The Tories want to persist with their vaccine-only strategy, even as they deny the vaccine to the Global South by blocking the patent waiver.
What can we do to force policy change? And what are the key demands to push for?
The Zero Covid campaign is organising a Campaign Call for all activists and supporters on Monday 25 October at 6pm to discuss all these questions and more, with an introduction from Joan Twelves. Register here
