Brief description n°2: 

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.

The five demands are:

  • Creation of climate-friendly jobs with Just Transition. Job-creating industrial transformation to achieve net-zero carbon emissions, along with jobs in health, education and other quality public services.
  • Rights for all workers, regardless of their employment arrangements, to fulfill the promise of the ILO Centenary Declaration with its labour protection floor including rights, maximum working hours, living minimum wages and health and safety at work.
  • Universal social protection, with the establishment of a Social Protection Fund for the least wealthy countries.
  • Equality. Ending all discrimination, such as by race or gender, to ensure that all people can share in prosperity and that the appalling concentration of wealth in the hands of a few at the expense of the many is undone.
  • Inclusion. To combat the growing power of monopolies and oligarchs, ensure that developing countries can actually develop their economies and guarantee tax systems that provide the income vital for governments to meet the needs of people and the planet. An inclusive approach to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic is paramount, both in terms of economic support as well as universal access to testing, treatment and vaccines.
