As rich countries drop pandemic measures with plentiful COVID-19 vaccines and life returns to normal, the rest of the world is suffering with new deadly waves of the virus. Only 1.5 % of Africa's population has had a jab. Yet, the same rich nations are blocking other countries from accessing the know-how to make their own vaccine.
We will hear from international speakers from the African Alliance and Focus on the Global South. We will also learn from the people behind Free the Vaccine in the US, medical students organizing with UAEM globally and our own activists who delivered brilliant actions pushing AstraZeneca here in the UK.
This will be a chance to gather, inspire and organize together to ramp up our campaign in the autumn.
ONLINE OPTION: Option to join via Zoom for at least parts of the event. Please bear with us as we navigate this new reality.
