As rich countries drop pandemic measures with plentiful 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.
Join us for an afternoon of learning and organising to end the global vaccine apartheid!
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 organising 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 organise together to ramp up our campaign in the autumn.
Note: All Covid-19 precautions will be followed but those unable to travel and attend in person will be able to join in via Zoom for at least parts of the event. Please bear with us as we navigate this new reality.
