CORONA LETTERS FROM NEW YORK
April 13, 2020 - New York, USA
NEW! RLS-NYC BLOG
On December 31, 2019, while the whole world was celebrating the New Year, the local government in Wuhan, China, announced that health authorities were treating dozens of cases per day of a mysterious pneumonia like illness. Days later, researchers in China identified this new virus that had infected thousands of people as a Corona Virus. Since then, the virus has spread across the world at astonishing speed, causing a global health emergency.
As we are all grappling with this “new normal,” the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office, has shifted to virtual work. As we continue to fight for a more just and equitable world, we are now busy moving events online—opening the possibility for a broader participation potentially.
At the same time, we are confronted with this crisis that shows the failure of the capitalist system even more trenchant than before, and the need for a critical and progressive reflection is obvious. This is why we start this blog today. We want to give space for analyzing the crisis, describing new forms of solidarity and social struggle and reflecting on the world after this crisis. In this, we will probably not have the answers, but we will strive to put out the important questions.
