China - Domestic Violence Escalates During the COVID-19 Epidemic

By Zhang Wanqing

March 2, 2020 - On February 11, Xiao Li received a distressing call from a 12-year-old crying for help.

The child was wandering the deserted streets of their hometown in the central Henan province with his mother and 7-year-old sister. Their father had physically abused their mother and then kicked them out of the house at a time when many cities, including theirs, were on lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Their mother, surnamed Wang, had already divorced the man, but he had coerced her and the children into spending the Lunar New Year with his family.

Xiao told Sixth Tone that Wang — a distant relative — had wanted to escape her abusive ex-husband and make the 50-kilometer trip to see Xiao. But it was extremely difficult to get a permit from the police to leave a city under lockdown.

After much fruitless discussion, Xiao said she finally managed to convince the police to give her a driving permit. Xiao said she met Wang and the children at her town’s border — which they had walked five hours toward before Wang’s ex-husband picked them up and drove them the rest of the way.

“We were super worried about how easy it was for the abuser to beat her during the lockdown,” Xiao said. “There were no restaurants open, no transportation allowed. They (Wang and her children) hadn’t eaten in so long.”

Interview with Petra De Sutter on the COVID-19 crisis in Europe

30.03.2020 - Interview with Member of the European Parliament Petra De Sutter for the European Greens (Groen - Belgium)

Every year, the European Network organizes actions on 7 April. 7 April is World Health Day. We call it the Day of Action against the Commercialization of Health. At the same time we also try to reach our European representatives with our analyses and demands. This year, we planned a conference in the European Parliament together with Petra De Sutter on the accessibility of health. But the CODIV-19 crisis was one step ahead of us. As an alternative on our annual actions we are organizing a white sheet action and submitted a number of questions to Petra De Sutter, who answered our questions very willingly. She gives us some working points for which the European Greens, in response to this sanitary crisis, will fight for within the European Parliament.

30.03.2020 - Interview with Member of the European Parliament Brando Benifei for the European Socialists & Democrats (Partito Democratico - Italy)

Every year, the European Network organizes actions on 7 April, World Health Day. We call it the Day of Action against the Commercialization of Health. At the same time we also try to reach our European representatives with our analyses and demands. This year, we planned a conference in the European Parliament. But the COVID-19 crisis was one step ahead of us. On the occasion of the "white sheet" action on 7 April, which we organize as an alternative to our annual actions, we submitted a number of topical questions to Brando Benifei, italian MEP for the European socialists, who answered our questions willingly. He shines light on how the Socialists will position themselves within the European Parliament.

RescEU of the EC
On Friday 6 March, during the hospital social dialogue, DG Health Frank van Loock said that 20 European countries will start buying together safety equipment for healthcare workers. The trade unions made it clear that at that time there was already a shortage. Every day counts. Prevention is a key factor in reducing costs. The European Commission decided only on the 19th of March to create a strategic rescEU stockpile of medical equipment such as ventilators and protective masks to help EU countries in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Justice in the Era of COVID-19: Our Global Responsibility - Gender

By Fernando Travesí, Executive Director

March 27, 2020 - Today, we are facing a global public health crisis of unprecedented proportions. Only time will tell the devastating toll that COVID-19 will exact on human life. The breakneck speed at which the virus is spreading does not give us reason for optimism in the near future. At the writing of this letter, more than 575,000 cases and 26,000 deaths have been recorded worldwide. The pandemic has also paralyzed the world economy. To deal with the crisis and slow the spread of the disease, countries, major cities, and other municipalities have declared states of emergency and have issued strict orders requiring nonessential businesses, government offices, and schools to close and residents to stay at home and limit social interactions. As a result, factories have reduced or suspended production, government agencies have begun furloughing employees, and companies large and small have been laying off workers by the thousands, rattling the markets. Among the hardest hit are low-wage workers, many of whom depend on the informal or gig economy.
