Pandemik Dua Darjat (Pandemic of Inequality) is about how the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the inequality between the haves and have-nots, and between those in power and the disempowered.

People are treated unjustly based on their social status. We see this in who gets retrenched and who gets exempted from movement restriction rules.

We see how hospital cleaners don’t qualify for special allowances even though they are front liners, just like doctors, nurses and police officers. Similarly, students in rural areas suffer from poor internet connectivity and access to online education.

We believe that every human being is equal and should be treated equally regardless of colour, beliefs, class, nationality, age, gender and orientation.
