These are recorded videos of the webinar: Solidarity Series: Conversations during lockdown & beyond, conducted between March 31, 2020 and April 17, 2020.

This webinar is aimed for activists who want to explore the concepts in depth, develop conceptual clarity & understanding on some of the issues we all work on, & grapple with. We believe it will help us in our work, as we interact with a wide range of people, media, state etc. With Covid-19 taking over everybody, and every walks of life, we thought of starting the series with issues around it.
