Vaccine inequality is so severe that it is labelled ‘vaccine apartheid’ by many. It’s a shocking symbol of global economic inequality –and itself will foster deeper inequality for a generation unless it can be successfully challenged. At the heart of the problem is a global economy which puts corporate interests ahead of human life and wellbeing. The same economic rules fuelling vaccine inequality are also expanding the power of gigantic agricultural and big tech corporations over our lives, as well as preventing us dealing with climate change. A new international economy is possible and necessary. Join Global Justice Now and National Nurses United for a trans-Atlantic rally to get the fight started!
