REAS Red de redes (Spain) – Collaborative Guide to Solidarity Economy Initiatives (SSE)

“The REAS network of networks is launching a collaborative GUIDE to identify proposals and initiatives based on the solidarity economy (SSE) and citizens to denounce, resist and respond to the COVID-19 crisis”.

Article from the Saltodiario “Is there a vaccine for capital’s pandemic?”

“In the face of the various crises unleashed by COVID’19, we read the situation in terms of the Solidarity Economy from our Charter of Principles. This text is the introductory framework for a Guide to Solidarity Economy Initiatives that REAS Network of networks is promoting, to show those experiences of denunciation, resistance and construction of alternatives that are taking place in the face of the current health, economic and social crisis.

We are facing a convulsive moment full of uncertainty, in a sort of dystopia taken from a movie script. Faced with this current state of alarm, we are trying to find clues that will help us understand the situation that citizens and the planet are going through; the coronavirus does not understand borders and is more globalised than ever. It is therefore urgent to identify the causes that have led us to this point, to establish the necessary measures and to lay the foundations to get out of this crisis – health, but also economic and social – and not to get bogged down in its curve again”.
