End Vaccine Apartheid, Vaccinate the World Rally

On October 28th UAEM students and staff supported the organizing for a protest led by allies “People’s Action” in Washington DC demanding world leaders at G20 1) lift vaccine patents and share the technology to allow ALL countries to develop their own vaccines and 2) equitably redistribute surplus vaccines in high income nations. The rally was covered on the front page of Democracy Now. The image that was selected was of our Free the Vaccine banner with “Sharing is Caring” held up by students in Care Bear costumes.
