October 18 will be held for the 18th time the Existrans to claim rights for trans people. Indeed, they are forced to face an uphill struggle to access medical treatment (Including hormones and surgery) allowing them to change their body, or to access a change this surname and be issued with identity documents to gender in which they live.--- Existrans: face transphobia or forgetfulness and forgiveness! ---- October 18 will be held for the 18th time the Existrans to claim rights for trans people. ---- This State conveys and reinforces transphobia transphobic caused by a patriarchal system that perpetuates the idea that being man or woman is a fact of nature, caused by genetics, although it is socially constructed, Reporting oppression between a dominant group and a subordinate group.

This room transphobia creates a situation of precariousness for trans people who have lots of difficulties in finding work or have access to health care. Moreover trans people face violence, whether in the street, at work, in the family or the couple, police, prisons, etc. Speeches and transphobic acts often struggle to be widely denounced: so must remember that when reactionary AKI for all holding placards "My mom called Robert," or the fascists rave about the "gender theory" and turned into girls in kindergarten boys, this is attacks directed primarily towards trans people. However, many academics advocating studies gender (gender studies) continue to pass this transphobic violence in silence, even be argued which is not to deny the biological differences between men and women.

This situation is all the more worrying for people who suffer multiple oppressions. thus the Trans people white and from middle-class backgrounds may have access to resources to address transphobia they face. It's more complicated for those who also have the status of women, undocumented immigrants, of precarious, etc. Also for non-white and female prostitutes, who are much more likely to be killed or end up in jail.

Therefore, if we support the struggle for concrete legislative measures, such as a change of Staff simplified civil or better taken into account by physicians, we believe only they would insufficient, and it is also essential to fight for the regularization of you tou · · s undocumented, against this system racist and neocolonial, against capitalism that gives rise to exploitation and precariousness, and against patriarchy, which is the
because of sexism, homophobia and transphobia.

As anarchists, we believe that only the struggle and self-help us out of such a system,
its leaders have an interest in preserving it. We are aware that such self-organization can be truly effective only if marginalized people can take their rightful place in
militant organizations of their choice, and struggles ... It is therefore necessary to fight every day against transphobia, sexism, racism, homophobia, all oppression and all systems domination.

We therefore call on you to participate in the march of Existrans

A trans man is a man who, at birth, was labeled "F", while a trans woman is a woman who, at birth, was labeled "M". Conversely, a cis person is someone who is not trans, that is to say, living in the same genre as one that was assigned at birth. A change in family status is an act to change the name and / or sex indicated on his marital status (and therefore on official documents such as identity card, social security, etc.). At present, trans people who want such a change shall be subject to the discretion of judges, in fact, a circular advocates sex change in civil status from the time when there was "irreversible", a concept which is subject to the interpretation of each judge, most still require surgery. In theory, trans people have the right, like everyone world, to choose their doctor. However, the fact that many doctors do not agree to meet trans people and Some hospital staff describe themselves as experts in the subject line makes a lot of trans people in need pass by psychiatrists and endocrinologists designated by the teams in question
