‘The 2020 World AIDS Day ACTUP demo in London was pure joy. Reigniting AIDS activism beyond 01 Dec & remembrance on World AIDS Day. Our work is far from done, HIV/AIDS stigma is real and it’s here. Next year is 40 years since the first reported AIDS cases. We must remember those we have lost, and look to the future, working together to create a world free of HIV stigma.’ Shamal Waraich
Thank you to our amazing Stephen Hart for this lovely video with all the powerful speeches 🙂
Inspired by our amazing speakers Silvia Petretti, Phidelma Neo Moepi, Tresca Wilson, Ejel Khan, Patrick Richard, Paolo Zeriali, Shamal Waraich and MC Jaroslaw Ploszajski Kubiak clarity came to douse the flames of hypocrisy at how the AIDS pandemic, with 38 million dead people across the world, needs to be at the forefront of fighting COVID.
Nothing can be analysed in a vacuum and everything is political. As Silvia Petretti said so well, if the AIDS pandemic affected rich white straight men then a vacinne would be found within a year – and ooooh look whats happened.
A joy to be united in anger with AIDS COALITION TO UNLEASH POWER once again. Until there healthcare for all. A Luta Continua!
