Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch Coronavirus Protest in Washington DC

Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch holds a protest outside the White House on the day of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit with President Biden in Washington, DC., on Thursday, July 15, 2021. Body bags, which represent the global number of COVID-19 deaths since the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) waiver was first proposed in October 2020, lay below an oversized puppet of Merkel, who blocked the TRIPS waiver in Germany.
