The worst possible people are in charge at the worst possible time

“Coronavirus should be a warning that our current system is not fit for purpose,” says George Monbiot of Double Down News. “We need a system that puts life above money, that values human life and the lives of all the other species with which we share this world above the profit-seeking motives of corporations and billionaires.”

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
