(en) Communicate of the Coordination Brazilian Anarchists (CAB): March 8, International Women's Day (pt) [machine translation]

"We are slaves of the slaves. They exploit them more ruthlessly than men." - Lucy Parsons. ---- Historical rescue on March 8, International Women's Day: ---- We have a culture of forgetting, erase our memory, are the result of a history that generations ancestors built. So it is very important that we as feminists anarchists organized, do the rescue and preservation of the cultural struggle in the history of the oppressed class, the struggles employed by great women who have not undergone the domineering patriarchal regime of his time. ---- Important dates which were historic in the class struggle, as the March 8 and May 1, are "celebrated" without the knowledge their origins. We know that the ruling class has its own version of the story version that deliberately erases the social struggles against domination and exploitation. Even more so it is that we must take in the history of our class, value their achievements and learn from his movement.

March 8th:

The International Day of Women's struggle originates on 8 March 1857. In an episode of great repression and violence used against the struggle of women workers in the textile sector and its strike movement. The workers had occupied the factory in which they worked, claiming reduction of working hours, salary parity with men, who came to receive three times more for the same type of service, and more dignity in the workplace. In New York City, the bosses in response to movement, locked the workers and set fire to the factory, charring and killing about 130 weavers.

If we live in the logic of domination and exploitation which causes thousands of people to live subjected to various forms of oppressions, we can also be sure that it is women who suffer most from all inequality and social injustice of capitalism. They are already exploited as workers, which further intensifies for being women in a society governed by machismo.

women attacks political situation:

And today, in a society in which the rise of the conservative right is undeniable, we see the bottom of the attacks will further intensify. One of the attacks is Bill 5069/2013 authored by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Eduardo Cunha (PMDB), which deals with the practice of abortion, that "typifies as a crime against life's announcement means abortifacient and provides specific penalties for those who induces the mother to the practice of abortion. "It provides for imprisonment of 4 to 8 years, who assist directly or indirectly in the pregnant woman abortion. And this is even more accentuated in relation to aid and / or guidance from professionals, with sentences of between 5 to 10 years in prison.

This should be a time of unification of the sectors of the oppressed class to react against attacks from above. Only with a lot of organization and social force we women advance in our economic and political achievements and pluck of the capital and the state forces, the rights that we have always been denied during the history of class struggle.

We can say that the year 2015 was advances to the struggle of women. In addition to 5th March of the Daisies in August 2015, which brought together indigenous women, Maroons and farmers from all over Brazil, also in Brasilia was the first March of the Black Women, which served to give more visibility to those who until then "did not appear in photo carrying the piano, "as Juliana Gonçalves, journalist and one of the coordinators of the movement in São Paulo.

Kurdish and Zapatistas:

In two other points of the globe, somewhat distant from Brazil, they are very interesting processes course of self-organization and women's empowerment, we can lean in and pay attention a little more, serving as a reference and inspiration.

One is the Kurdish revolutionary process, in which women, in a region historically dominated and governed by a perverse machismo, that prevented him from showing his own face, come starring a central role in the fight against the Islamic State and the Turkish State, two great enemies of the Kurdish people.

Closer to us, there are the Zapatistas in Mexico, where since 1994 indigenous women has attracted the attention of everyone in the struggle in defense of their territory and their culture. As seen in Ley Revolucionaria de Mujeres EZLN, "Noveno: Las mujeres podran occupy positions dirección en la organización y tener military grads en las Fuerzas Armadas revolutionary."

In this March 8, we want to draw particular attention to the murder of Berta Cáceres. She was general coordinator of the Civic Council of Popular Organizations and Indigenous Honduras (COPINH). He had repeatedly expressed themselves against the actions and intentions of both the current government concessions of natural resources and harmful foreign transnational companies by building dams and capture the resources of indigenous peoples. She was murdered in her home on 03 March. For her, no minute of silence. All our lives the fight!

The Coordination Brazilian Anarchist (CAB) publicly say that part, with all the women in this struggle against the patriarchal capitalist system and the recovery of historical memory of the struggles of women. We call all people to the struggle in defense of the working woman, the woman riverside, the indigenous woman, the peasant woman, the quilombo women, black women, LGBT women, of all women oppressed and exploited !!



VIVA Kurdish and Zapatistas !!

NO TO PL 5069/13!
