Never Waste a Crisis
In 2020, Trócaire launched a twenty-minute documentary called Never Waste a Crisis. This documentary explores how certain governments are using the COVID-19 pandemic to crack down on minority groups and civil society space. The film also examines the crisis in the context of business and human rights; for example, the ongoing targeting of human rights and environmental activists and the fast-tracking of development initiatives which threaten the safety, security, and rights of local communities. This resource is designed to open up this documentary for parish groups and faith communities. It offers reflections from Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti to help participants explore the issues raised in Never Waste a Crisis.
