Signs of Hope – A continuing series May 22, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.


Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

<blockquote>I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.</blockquote>

Any contributions this week?

In this crisis, social movements of all kinds are continuing to organise around the world, including in some of the least easy circumstances.

This week Interface publishes another 8 short pieces including feminist solidarity in Mexico, organising in Kenya, labour struggles in Italy, ecological activism in India and migrant solidarity around the world – bringing us up to 35 stories (from every continent except Antarctica) since we started the series a month back.

State and commercial media – and too many of our own – write as though the only active forces in the world were (amazingly) states and corporations, with the rest of us condemned to die or lose our jobs, clap or consume but never able to act and change things. The reality is … a bit different.

Glad to see agreement that the state will cover the costs of legal action that secondary teachers might face over the proposed Leaving Cert grading system. Because there absolutely will be cases.

Maybe Dominic’s cummings and goings will finally be his undoing?

Wow, only just read that. Well.
