Radical Women Petition Launch: Winning the vaccination race means putting the needs of people before profits
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
The race to vaccinate has finally begun. But only after the Delta variant bolted. With infections and deaths rising, federal and state governments are using inadequate vaccination targets to justify the reopening of business — and pitting vaccinated against unvaccinated achieve this. The New South Wales scientist group, OzSage, is warning that to reopen at 80% would overwhelm the state’s intensive care units. People’s safety trails behind profit in this race.
This online petition, initiated by Radical Women, demands federal, state and territory governments to start implementing real and far-reaching solutions for everyone’s health and safety.
Come and be part of its launch! Join others ready to redirect this race and put people at the front, with coordinated, global vaccination as the goal. Help work out strategies to get signatures far and wide — in our workplaces and unions, communities and networks — and galvanising people around these ideas. Bring your creativity and energy!
