(en) US, Boston: La Rivolta! Anarcha-Feminist Festival, March 4th

Date Mon, 13 Feb 2006 15:27:59 +0200

A Radical Celebration of International Women's Day - A day of
anarcha-feminist workshops, music, culture and networking...
La Rivolta! Manifesto
La Rivolta! is a celebration of the radical women of history and the battles
they waged as well as a forum for solidarity among radical feminists today
to continue the fight for the liberation of all oppressed people.
The patriarchal capitalist system that designates women to a lesser status than
men also underestimates women's capacity to challenge the existing order and
improve our circumstances. We must tap into our individual and collective strengths
and build support for political and cultural efforts aimed at social change.

La Rivolta! is a chance for us to meet, exchange information and
ideas and to learn about each other's struggles and practical efforts to
overcome them. Drawing from the incredible people committed to
radical feminism in our community in Boston as well as in other
cities and countries, La Rivolta! will unite individuals and groups
across fields of activity from anarcho-punk rock to anti-violence
against women, from anti-prison work to women's health care
towards the greater empowerment of all women.

The battle for women's liberation must be fought within the
framework of class struggle. As long as there is a ruling class neither
women nor men will be free. We must understand the society within
which we live and continually reevaluate what it takes to change it,
so that we may more forcefully vie with those who would prefer to
keep us in ignorance and fear, those who become richer and richer
while robbing the majority of material well-being, those who deny us
our rights, those who want state control over our bodies, use us as
fodder in their wars, attempt to pacify us with false elections, and
decimate our environment. We envision a society based on freedom
and equality in which poverty and privilege, class and injustice,
sexism and racism and homophobia are on the scrap heap of history.
Our goal is the emancipation of all oppressed and exploited people,
and as part of the ongoing fight we must address issues that impact
women specifically. This can only be achieved through our own

United we are strong. Communicating and building networks of
support makes us stronger. La Rivolta!
