In Light of the Global Pandemic, Focus Attention on the People

International Assembly of the Peoples and Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research

Español Português Français हिन्दी

Introduction

The global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 disease has paralyzed large parts of the world. In this context, on March 21, we launched a Declaration in which we urged all the people of the world to put Life before Capital. We proposed the opening up of a debate on an international political platform with 16 concrete proposals of actions to confront the pandemic.

The Declaration was launched jointly by the International People’s Assembly (IPA) – an international articulation of anti-imperialist movements and organizations from 87 countries – and by Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research. We have since invited organizations and individuals to endorse the Declaration.

To date, we have received a total of 479 endorsements from 70 countries on all continents, including 8 international platforms, 233 organizations and 238 persons, mainly intellectuals.

The reaction of people to the Declaration is very positive. It indicates that there is a great popular will to give concrete answers to the crisis produced by this pandemic; our movements, and those not in our movements, wish to produce deep changes in the capitalist, neoliberal, and patriarchal system in which we live; this system is the root of the economic crisis; its destruction of the public systems of social and health protection generated the health crisis. All of these are elements that precede the pandemic and that aggravate the situation of the workers in the face of the contagion and lethality of this new disease.

At the same time, we have received important contributions and questions as part of the dialogue with the 16 points in the Declaration. We have systematized some of them below, because we consider that these aspects are essential for any future discussion.

  1. The Gendered Impact of the CoronaShock. Without a doubt, the question of gender must be central to our assessment of the CoronaShock and of any policy framework of the left that emerges out of it.
    1. In the health field itself, three-quarters of the front-line workers are women, many of them working without union protection, without protective equipment, and without any leadership role in their fields. We put on the table the importance of building power for women workers.
    2. In the lockdown around the world, as a consequence of the overwhelming evidence that care works sits on the shoulders of women, patriarchal gender roles have asserted themselves. We believe fundamentally that the patriarchal understanding of ‘men’s work’ and ‘women’s work’ must be challenged and the structures must be put in place – such as universal childcare and the fight for equity inside households – that undermine these distinctions.
    3. There is already evidence of an increase in domestic violence during the quarantine, where the main victims are women, especially poor and black working women. We urge all peoples of the world to denounce and combat violence by demanding that the State provide legal, social and economic protection to all women victims of violence.
  1. The Question of the Dollar-Wall Street Complex. We had called upon the United Nations to rethink the question of the dollar being essential the global fiat currency. What we want to amplify is that the institutions of finance for trade and development are utterly dominated by the United States and by the European states – whether the banking networks, the money transfer networks, the ratings agencies, the currency used to reconcile international trade. We want to make the case that this biased institutional system needs to be democratised, with the emergence of truly international financial systems for both development and trade.
  1. Colonialism and Neo-Colonialism. Despite decolonization, the states that became newly independent struggle for lack of capital and investment. They had to borrow from the old colonial powers, and often went into debt. When they tried to finance their debt, they were told to ‘structurally adjust’ their governmental policy to favour international capital rather than the social needs of their population. What needs to be on the table are reparations for colonialism – the vast amount of resources stolen from the formerly colonised states – and are new proposals to deal with the toxic debt and for further financing.

Finally, we cannot fail to mention that the pandemic clarified something about the social orders in which we live: on the one side, states with a socialist orientation (China, Cuba, Venezuela) mobilised whatever resources that they had available – regardless of economic losses – to contain the pandemic; the states of the bourgeois order utterly failed to use their considerable resources and failed to prepare a rational plan for these resources (the death rates from Italy to the United States of America have been catastrophic, a political crime against humanity).

The example of the Venezuelan people, the Cuban people, and the Chinese people fill our hearts with hope that another world is possible, where relations between peoples are based on solidarity, integration, cooperation and complementarity, as dreamed of by Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Berta Cáceres and other internationalists who preceded us.


Declaration

SARS-CoV-2 or COVID19, now declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation, has begun to wreak havoc in large parts of the world, with other parts waiting in anticipation. We are in a real struggle, which needs total mobilisation; a struggle that needs to put life before profit. We will only win this struggle – as China has already done – if our people are united and disciplined, if governments earn our respect by their actions, and if we act in solidarity across the globe.

Global debt is at $250 trillion, with corporate debt already enormous. On the other hand, there are trillions of dollars swirling around stock markets and in tax havens. As economic activity contracts, corporations will line up for bailouts; this is not the best use of precious human resources in this time. In the midst of this, that financial markets remain open is a failure of imagination. The drop in the value of stocks – in the markets from the Hang Seng to Wall Street – is merely a way to intensify global social anxiety, since the health of the stock market has come to be seen – erroneously – as an indicator of economic health in general.

Long-term quarantines and shutdowns have taken place in large parts of the world, certainly in Europe and North America, but increasingly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Economic activity has already begun to shudder to a halt. Estimates of the net losses are not possible to make, and even the major international institutions are adjusting their numbers every day. An UNCTAD study on 4 March, for instance, said that the slowdown of manufacturing in China will by itself disrupt the global supply chain and decrease exports by $50 billion; this is only one part of the loss. The total losses are – as yet – beyond calculation.

The IMF has pledged to use $1 trillion to help countries stave off economic disaster. Already about twenty countries have come to the IMF to request assistance; Iran, which had stayed away from the IMF for the past three decades, has now requested IMF help. It would be an auspicious change in the IMF’s policy, unprecedented in history, if not for the shameful refusal to help the people of Venezuela under the pretext of not recognizing the Venezuelan government. The IMF must not require any adjustments or strings for the provision of these bridge loans. The rejection of a loan to Venezuela is a sign of great political failure by the IMF.

International solidarity from China and Cuba is exemplary. Chinese and Cuban doctors have been in Iran, Italy, and Venezuela, while they have offered their services and expertise around the world. They have developed salves and medical treatments that prevents the fatality rate for those afflicted with COVID19, and they want to distribute this – without any patent or profit – to the world’s people. The example of the Chinese and Cubans in this period must be taken seriously; thanks to this example, it is easier to imagine socialism in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, than it is to live under the heartless regime of capitalism.

European countries, now the focus of the pandemic, are seeing their weakened health systems collapse after decades of under-funding and neo-liberal austerity. European governments, as well as the European Central Bank and the EU, allocate the bulk of their resources on trying to safeguard the financial and business sectors from a sure economic debacle. The adoption of timid actions aimed at strengthening the capacities of States in the face of the crisis – targeted renationalisations, temporary public control of health service providers – or of palliative measures – limited exemptions from the payment of rent and housing mortgages – do not represent a decisive commitment to provide for basic guarantees for labour and safeguarding the health of the working class that is most exposed to the devastating effects of the pandemic: healthcare workers, women that are caregivers, employees of the food industry and basic services companies, etc.

This is a partial repudiation of the neoliberal prescriptions that have dominated the world for the past fifty years. The IMF must take cognizance of this, since it has otherwise participated actively in cannibalising resources in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and creating institutional deserts in country after country. Strengthening the state and redistributing wealth in favour of the masses should be the global orientation.

Scientists tell us that this struggle against the virus could last for the next thirty or forty days. That is why it is essential that each country and each government take measures to prevent the death of multiple thousands of people.

The movements, unions, and parties that make up the International Assembly of Peoples propose that a programme of structural change be formulated and implemented to allow us to win this struggle and reshape the world. This programme must include:

  1. Immediate suspension of all work, except essential medical and logistical personnel and those required to produce and distribute food and necessities, without any loss of wages. The State must assume the cost of the wages for the period of the quarantine.
  2. Health, food supply, and public safety must be maintained in an organised manner. Emergency grain stocks must be immediately released for distribution amongst the poor.
  3. Schools must all be suspended.
  4. Immediate socialization of hospitals and medical centres so that they do not worry about the profit motive as the crisis unfolds. These medical centres must be under the control of the government’s health campaign.
  5. Immediate nationalization of pharmaceutical companies, and immediate international cooperation amongst them to find a vaccine and easier testing devices. Abolishment of intellectual property in the medical field.
  6. Immediate testing of all people. Immediate mobilization of tests and support for medical personnel who are at the frontlines of this pandemic.
  7. Immediate speed-up of production for materials necessary to deal with the crisis (testing kits, masks, respirators).
  8. Immediate closure of global financial markets.
  9. Immediate gathering of the finances to prevent the bankruptcy of governments.
  10. Immediate cancellation of all non-corporate debt.
  11. Immediate end to all rent and mortgage payments, as well as an end to evictions; this includes the immediate provision of adequate housing as a basic human right. Decent housing must be a right for all citizens guaranteed by the state.
  12. Immediate absorption of all utility payments by the State – water, electricity, and internet provided as part of a human right; where these utilities are not universally accessible, we call for them to be provided with immediate effect.
  13. Immediate end to the unilateral, criminal sanctions regimes and economic blockades that impact countries such as Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela and prevent them from importing necessary medical supplies.
  14. Urgent support for the peasantry to increase the production of healthy food and supply it to the government for direct distribution.
  15. Suspension of the dollar as an international currency and request that the United Nations urgently call a new international conference to propose a common international currency.
  16. Ensure a universal minimum income in every country. This makes possible to guarantee support from the state for millions of families who are out of work, working in extremely precarious conditions or self-employed. The current capitalist system excludes millions of people from formal jobs. The State should provide employment and a dignified life for the population. The cost of the Universal Basic Income can be covered by defence budgets, in particular the expense of arms and ammunition.
