“There will be no return to old ‘normality’ in the near future”
These are Tedros Adhamon’s words. Meanwhile, due to “old normality”, in some places disguised as “new normality”, no near futures seem to appear on our horizonts.Global illness. A yearning for accumulation that does not pay attention to those who are left out, crowded in refugee camps or in shacks surrounded by greenhouses of slave labor; those who are evicted from their homes, neighborhoods and lives; those who are forgotten in jails which negotiate with their black bodies; those who are forced to put their dignity in the queue of the food bank, of the charity of the State or the Churches, of unemployment, of the papers, or the hawthorn borders.
Global resistance. A force that reinvents each time the meaning of the word freedom to undress it from the abuses it suffers on a daily basis. Which recovers the word justice by putting it into practice, day by day, in the networks of mutual support, in stopping evictions, in the demonstrations for the support of the public, of the common; in strengthening ties; in the planetary virtual proximity of the contagion of slogans, struggles and political affections.
With this text we invite you to continue denouncing the unbearable injustice of normality, and to tell  where it breaks and how from these cracks emerge genuine political springs ; through words, posters, sounds, images, graffiti, tweets, stones or birds.

NORMALITY WAS THE PROBLEM | Call for a Common Campaign

The context of the global pandemic has amplified all the inequalities that feed the capital accumulation system: gender inequalities (more violence in closed-door households, more care workload for women without schools or senior centers, more harassment on online channels…); the inequalities of border regimes; inequalities in the international division of labor, among many others. At the same time, all public goods have been eroded, as shown by the state of health systems around the world. That was and it is our normality.
