Let us not forget the lessons we’ve learned during the quarantine and the better air quality we enjoyed during those few months. We all should be more willing to embrace a new model of transport.
We need to link the exploitation of bodies to that of lands. If we start from the principle that there are continuities between bodies and ecosystems, we realise that to harm one is to harm the other. This prism helps us to understand anti-slavery revolts also as resistance to this colonial habitation.
During the pandemic, we have been forced to prioritise our private domestic spaces. Will the ‘new normality’ bring the return of the old normal: the prioritisation of commercial private spaces over common spaces and interests?
The dusk of ‘traditional’ hunting in MaIta is near, but the coalition of NGOs is not the one that will put an end to it.
Why do COVID-19 updates skew so much towards death and not recovery? We need to be particularly cautious in letting numbers of death records beat us into fear. Or do we assume that people will not act responsibly unless they are shocked into a panic?
If you believe that COVID-19 was sent by divine providence to make this world a fairer, greener place, you are mistaken. It’s up to us to strive for this goal. A virus has no such mission.
Governments, present and future, should be obliged to act on the declared climate emergency and the ecological crisis facing us, which is an emergency indeed.
