    Brief description n°1:

    An International May Day where all unions, social movements from all over the world join together to reaffirm to governments and international institutions that health is a universal right that comes before all else and that must be guaranteed to every woman and every man of any place on the planet, without discrimination or delay imposed by income, by the market, by political interest: UNIVERSAL AND FREE VACCINATION AGAINST COVID-19
    The vaccine is a common good, not a commodity. Patents and licenses must be eliminated to favor the faster production and accessibility of the vaccine to all countries and the entire world population. NO RIGHTS ON PATENTS – FREE PATENTS
    The economic loss caused by the pandemic must be addressed by protecting the most affected populations and social groups, guaranteeing universal basic services such as health, education, housing and work with rights and not in conditions of exploitation, blackmail and danger.
    The exit from the crisis is either for everyone or the crisis will return in its old or new forms.
    We ask for RIGHTS, WORK, SOCIAL PROTECTION FOR ALL.
