Interface journal is publishing short pieces about social movements' struggles around the COVID-19 crisis, so we can learn from what each other is doing, find inspiration and hope, and think about the longer term.

We've just uploaded this week's batch of pieces at https://www.interfacejournal.net/:

  *   Louisa Acciari, Care for those who care for you! Domestic workers' struggles in times of pandemic crisis (Brazil)
  *   John Krinsky and Hillary Caldwell, New York City's movement networks: resilience, reworking, and resistance in a time of distancing and brutality
  *   Roshanak Amini, Knowledge is power: virtual forms of everyday resistance and grassroots broadcasting in Iran
  *   Jenny Gkiougki, Corona-crisis affects small Greek farmers who counterstrike with a social media campaign to unite producers & consumers on local level!

And another 21 pieces from the last three weeks including a Wuhan-based anti-domestic violence campaign, feminist challenges to tribalism in Pakistan, LGBTQ+ activism in Singapore, civil society struggles in Delhi, Brazilian movement struggles (in Portuguese), anti-mining movements in Haiti (in French), movements in Toronto, US strikes, an overview of struggles in Spain, a solidarity kitchen in Birmingham, Italian activists' powerlessness, activism for the needy in Germany, gig economy workers' activism in Britain, feminist degrowth organising, a study of citizen volunteerism, human rights issues, community supported agriculture in Italy and globally, and indigenous struggles in India during the virus.
