In partnership with the research group NEPAC (Center for Participation Research, Social Movements and Collective Action), from Unicamp, public manifestos written by different sectors of civil society were collected in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Public manifestos are collectively constructed and signed documents, which express and publicize the official position of a set of subjects in relation to a given theme or issue. Thus, notes, reports, letters of repudiation, campaigns and other documents were collected, expressing disagreement with the directions of policies to cope with the pandemic and its social and economic consequences and, in many cases, also suggested alternatives. The criteria used in the selection of documents were: 1. “National” or “regional” documents (texts produced at the state, municipal or communities/neighborhoods were discarded, as well as texts prepared by a single regional or municipal institution); 2. Documents that are of proposition or repudiation aimed at state bodies or society in general. 3. No social media posts of a single individual were included, but documents signed by collectives and/or individuals organized collectively; 4. The collection was not restricted only to better known social movements, initiatives were included even outside the field of social movements to perceive proximity and differences; 5. No solidarity campaigns, no advisory booklets were included. 6. Notes from doctors or specialists have been discarded. The report, “Public Manifestos in Times of Covid-19”, by Ana Claudia Teixeira and Adriana Pismel, of the NEPAC team is available here.
