TODOS DE NOSOTROS

CADA HUMANO ES ESENCIAL!

REIVINDICAMOS:

1. SANIDAD PÚBLICA
Pruebas, tratamiento y sanidad gratuita para todos. Distribuir de comida y medicina para la gente mayor, los inmunocomprometidos, y los confinados a sus casas.

2. NO TRABAJO – APOYO MUTUO
Suspensión del trabajo no esencial, moratorio en desalojos y castigos por quedar en casa. Protecciones adecuadas y pago digno para los obreros esenciales, incluso en el sistema de sanidad, cuidado de niños, y la producción de comidas. Cupones de alimentos y baja de enfermedad garantizadas para todos.

3. NI COBROS – NI DEUDAS
Suspensión de todos los cobros, hipotecas, utilidades, préstamos, desalojos, y multas. Perdón por pagos atrasados.

4. LIBERTAD A LOS PRESOS
Libertad a todos los presos en riesgo, empezando con los ancianos. Alto a las redadas y libertad para todos detenidos de ICE. Alto a detención preventiva y al trabajo forzado de presos. Provenir condiciones sanitarias y humanas, llamadas y correos gratuitas para los encarcelados todavía.

5. HOGARES PARA TODOS
Moratorio en desalojos y juicios hipotecarios, alto a redadas de campamentos de homeless. Cierra a la tribunal de viviendo. Abrir a las casas vacías a cualquiera persona que las necesita, incluso estudiantes desplazados por el cerramiento de sus universidades.

EVERY HUMAN IS ESSENTIAL!

WE DEMAND:

1. FREE HEALTHCARE
Free testing, treatment and healthcare for all. Food and medication deliveries for the elderly, immunocompromised or home-bound.

2. NO WORK – HELP EACH OTHER
Suspend non-essential work: no firings, penalties or lost wages for staying home. Adequate protections and living wages for essential workers, such as in health care, childcare, farm work, and food production. Guaranteed food stamps and sick leave for all.

3. NO RENT – NO DEBT
Suspend all rent, mortgage, utilities, loans, foreclosures, evictions and parking enforcement. Forgiveness for lost payments during the pandemic.

4. FREE THE PRISONERS
Release at-risk prisoners, starting with the elderly. End ICE sweeps and release all ICE detainees. End bail, pre-trial detention and prison slave labor. Provide humane and sanitary conditions, and free phone calls and emails, for those still locked up.

5. HOMES FOR ALL
Moratorium on evictions and foreclosures, and stop sweeps of homeless encampments. Close the housing courts. Open unoccupied homes to anyone who needs one, such as unhoused people or students displaced by campus closures.
