Video starring Quebec front-line workers compares COVID-19 to racism
MONTREAL -- A viral video starring Quebec front-line and health service workers calls on the province to examine their views on immigration and race.
Titled Je Me Souviendrai, the video draws a comparison between COVID-19 and racism as the workers describe a foreign threat, one that has taken jobs and left people afraid.
The video's maker, Fabrice Vil, said on Facebook he created it “to fight racism and value ethno-cultural diversity by praising the efforts of workers in essential services.”
The video was inspired by a similar work made in the United Kingdom called You Clap For Me Now.
