Global Online Rally - WTO: Don't Trade with Our Lives
ESCR-Net along with Movement Law Lab, The People’s Vaccine Alliance and MSF Access Campaign are co-sponsoring the Online Global Rally to put pressure on the World Trade Organization (WTO) and States who refuse to pass a meaningful vaccine waiver on life-saving COVID-19 vaccines and therapies. The rally will amplify the voices of communities in Colombia, Palestine, South Africa, India, Thailand, Honduras, Kenya, Pakistan, Uganda, Mexico, and elsewhere – who have been most affected by the unequal distribution of vaccines. Human rights defenders and public health advocates also will lay out the advocacy and legal actions that several international coalitions are undertaking against wealthy countries who are undermining our fundamental right to health by opposing the waiver.
