This year, marginalized and grassroots communities across Southeast Asia faced the unique, uneven, and long-lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in their localities. Despite all, we persisted, trusting in practices, frameworks, and movements as alternatives to an anti-people system.
This report documents these responses from the ground. It bears witness to the power of the people to define development in their own terms.
As we approach the end of 2020 and the start of a new decade, let these cases of community responses by marginalized sectors, communities, and grassroots of Southeast Asian societies remind us of the possibilities of social solidarity and collective action.
Salute to the communities and organizations for braving the crisis of the decade. May their examples be lessons for all communities fighting the pandemic through alternatives.
