Webinar on the Impact of COVID-19 in SE Asia
Repressive government’s in South East Asia are using the Coronavirus pandemic to intensify crackdowns on the labour and human rights movements.
While COVID-19 has created challenges for refugees, minority groups, and workers across South East Asia, those communities are continuing the struggle for justice, as Coordinator of the ALTSEAN Network in Burma, Debbie Stothard, and Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA’s Myanmar Country Manager, Sri Wulandari, shared.
Through the Coronavirus Solidarity Fund, Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA is working on the ground in South East Asia and further afield to support our global network of partner organisations as they mobilise to protect vulnerable communities from the health and economic crisis.
In a webinar held on Wednesday, 13th May, Debbie and Wulan discussed with Union Aid Abroad’s Executive Officer, Kate Lee, how these movements have been impacted.
Solidarity in Times of Crisis
The health and economic crises born of the Coronavirus pandemic are hitting all of us, and it will hit hardest those already struggling for a dignified livelihood, those communities already fighting against injustice and exploitation.
Let’s stand together.
Let’s continue the long tradition of solidarity with communities living under poverty and oppression who are taking action to strengthen their public health, share life-saving information, and hold governments and corporations to account.
