Video: COVID-19 and the Global South

As the devastation from the COVID-19 virus continues, how are countries from the Global South coping? Are measures to stop the virus spreading also aimed at limiting people’s rights and freedoms? What are front-line socialists advocating in the pandemic?

This video is a livestream recording of the online forum on COVID-19 and the Global South hosted by Socialist Alliance and Green Left on April 11.

This forum featured socialist activists from neighbouring countries.
