[The inside of a building  Description automatically generated]

Back in April 2020 Interface asked activists around the world to tell us what their movements were up to in the coronavirus pandemic. Over the next six weeks we got 38 short pieces from every continent except Antarctica - covering feminist movements, LGBTQ+ activism, labour organizing, migrant activism, refugee solidarity, ecological struggles, food sovereignty, mutual aid, solidarity projects, artistic and digital resistance, and imagining a new world. It is an extraordinary and inspiring snapshot of the state of struggle around the world.

Together with general articles and book reviews, this issue of Interface has a total of 55 pieces covering movements in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belize, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Haiti, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Syria, Turkey, the UK, the US and globally and written in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.

Interface: a journal for and about social movements is open-access (free), global and multilingual. Our overall aim is "learning from each other's struggles": developing conversations between practitioners and researchers, but also between different social movements, intellectual traditions and national or regional contexts. Our editors and reviewers include social movement practitioners and engaged movement researchers.

Like all issues of Interface, this issue is free and open-access. You can download articles individually or a complete PDF of the issue (17 MB), from interfacejournal.net<https://mu.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8fec1296d65804c0c4b49c570&id=4db5c6f2e1&e=23a5e6e016>.

...cercare e saper riconoscere chi e cosa, in mezzo all'inferno, non e' inferno, e farlo durare, e dargli spazio.
