PAUSE THE SYSTEM
We are in a public health emergency. The Government is prioritising the economy and big business, disregarding the lives of our parents, grandparents and the most vulnerable in society.

Pause the System ~ Respond to the health emergency
Government must listen to the World Health Organisation and implement a policy of social distancing by halting all non-essential business and closing schools; as well as carrying out widespread testing and taking private clinics into public ownership.
Support Everyone ~ Take care of the most vulnerable
Government must provide universal basic income and full statutory sick pay for all people, pause all mortgages and rents and ensure vulnerable and marginalised members of society are taken care of; including the elderly, people with health conditions, migrants and people in precarious employment.
Transform the System ~ Build a Better World
The system is broken – the government is failing us. The climate emergency, factory farming and trade of animals bring strong threats of future pandemics. The Government must act to reduce emissions to net zero, halt biodiversity loss, as well as ban factory farming and the trade of animals. They must also support an independent citizen’s assembly which gives ordinary people the power to decide our shared future.
We are nonviolent in word and deed.
We stand against racism, xenophobia and all other forms of discrimination.
We call for system change, working with other movements who hold a shared vision of a better future.
We take care of ourselves, each other and our shared home.
