Well Read Red Tom Becker reads from a piece published in Counterpunch by Catherine Rottenberg and Neve Gordon, entitled: The Corono Virus Conundrum and Human Rights. Rottenberg and Gordon write about the coronavirus pandemic's potential to accelerate the already existent totalitarian drift of governments, both here and abroad, while also arguing for the possibility of a progressive uprising demanding an end to neoliberal and austerity politics. Rottenberg is Associate Professor of American and Canadian Studies at the University of Nottingham and Gordon is Professor of International Law and Human Rights at the School of Law in Queen Mary University of London.
