Eric’s summary of key points that will be discussed based on Laurie Barrett’s brilliant assessment

This is a brand new microbe never seen on planet earth before.

The U.S. death toll is 75 thousand and the world death toll is 316,000 always getting larger

We need a vaccine that is a “home run” and must be produced for all 7.5 Billion people on the planet

If not successfully eradicated may get out slowly all over planet and hope the virus does not mutate

The Rich countries must give massive aid and income transfers to the poor countries.

Eric adds this is an anti-imperialist challenge to today’s movement-every social justice group must be evaluated by its concrete aid to the Third World

The Strategy Center is raising this challenge to ourselves

The leadership of the Cuban medical brigades must be acknowledged and emulated.

We urge all members, staff, and organizers to listen to this compelling conversation and send email responses to Eric@Voicesfromthefrontlines.com and Channing@thestrategycenter.org
