The immediate demands of the International Socialist Center Christian Rakovsky
*No bailout for corporations and banks! Nationalise without compensation all entities in default of their debt under workers’ control and immediately redirect their resources to invest in industries that cater to the needs of the fight against the virus;
*Nationalise all corporations in industries that can produce medical equipment, all pharmaceutical companies, and all banks so that resources can be mobilised under state control for the fight against the pandemic;
* Nationalise all private hospitals and healthcare institutions in order to mobilise their entire capacity and their healthcare workers for the fight against the pandemic;
*Reduce armaments expenditures of the G-20 countries immediately by half so that resources can be freed for the fight against the virus;
*End all militarily and politically motivated sanctions, in particular on medications, medical equipment and foodstuffs;
*Expropriate all wealth in tax havens to use the resources internationally, with priority for the poor countries severely shaken by the pandemic;
*Health safety measures in all industries that are essential (factories, agriculture, transportation, shipping, retail etc.), including safe transportation to and from work, shorter shifts, four-day week, pay raises, additional personnel, less crowded work layout, protective gear, bearable hours, etc.;
