Corona Updates

To the daily horror of statistics on the infection, on death tolls and exponential developments, the answers that governments give at national level, the support packages for jobs and the economy shall not be the only political response. Progressives in governmental responsibility certainly need to act on the urgency, however there is a need for the Progressives of thinking beyond, for a longer perspective of progressive policies.

"Scaling up vaccination to save lives worldwide"

Op-ed by Conny Reuter, global coordinator of the Progressive Alliance and Udo Bullmann, Member of the European Parliament for the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament

Scaling up vaccination to save lives worldwide

It is time for Europe to show real vaccination solidarity to ensure that COVID vaccines are available to the Global South and COVAX in the volumes...

Vaccine equity is the biggest moral test before the global community.

We must ensure that everybody, everywhere, can be vaccinated as soon as possible.

We cannot afford to split our planet and societies into vaccine haves and have-nots.

🔎To ensure meaningful financial transparency, we want public CBCR to apply to all countries big multinationals operate in - whether in or outside the EU, and comprise:

✅employees
✅fixed assets & capital
✅net turnover
✅all profits and losses
✅subsidies

Vaccine equity affirms human rights. Vaccine nationalism denies it.

As I told the Human Rights Council this week, #COVID19 vaccines must be a global public good, accessible and affordable for all.

🔴 BREAKING

@UNESCO calls for #COVID19 vaccines to be considered a global public good.

Vaccines must be made equitably available in all countries, and not only to those who bid the highest for these vaccines.

Full statement: https://t.co/fQ2SCYtUZY #VaccineEquity

Ahead of the #EUCO meeting, @Conny_Reuter_PA and I published in @EURACTIV: The #COVID19-Pandemic is far from over; global immunisation efforts are still lacking coordination, cooperation and, most of all, resources.

EU must act NOW!

Network
Our network encompasses more than 140 parties and organisations. We have provided mutual support in setting up regional organisations and will continue to commit ourselves to regional exchange. We already work together closely with various regional party networks such as the Party of European Socialists (PES), the Group of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament, the Network of Social Democracy in Asia (SocDem Asia), the Central African Progressive Alliance (CAPA) and the Arab Social Democratic Forum (ASDF). We also maintain intensive and strategic relations with the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY). In the past few years, we have also been present on the ground in all regions of the world and have succeeded in expanding and strengthening our network. Right from the very start, the Progressive Alliance has welcomed the urgently-needed cooperation of progressive trade unions, civil society organisations, for instance in the field of gender equality and LGBTIQ rights, and think tanks.

Progress
We are convinced that a better future is possible. The progressive, social democratic and socialist parties have achieved a lot in their struggle for social progress and social democracy. Together we want to continue on this path of freedom, justice and solidarity.
At the same time we are determined to strongly defend this progress against its authoritarian and reactionary opponents who aggressively try to cast doubts on our common values. With courage and confidence we will lead the political struggle against such politics which lead to division, promote hatred and fear and rely on exclusion and isolation. Together we will stand up all over the world for a future in peace, freedom and justice.
