(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #260 - Kobanî: Feminism, reconstruction, self (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 27 May 2016 10:52:48 +0300

Frequently self-management of Montreuil awarded 1000 euros in feminist reconstruction project Kobanî worn by the women's movement Yekîtiya Star. ---- After four successful editions, the Fair is to self-management, in 2016, suspended. This was decided by the general meeting, feeling fatigue earn ranks. But as its coffers are well stocked, the AG decided, however, to make aid to self-management projects in Greece, Turkey, France, in Chiapas and Rojava. ---- On February 19, a delegation of the Fair has therefore visited the headquarters of the Kurdish left in Paris 10th. She met the collective women Kobanî Solidarity, which relays in France the work of the women's movement Yekîtiya Star , founded in 2005 in Syrian Kurdistan. ---- This leads, on the spot, three reconstruction projects in the city promoting the economic empowerment, political and cultural situation of women.

First, you must relaunch two production cooperatives - olive textile - destroyed by the Islamic State. Formerly, women were confined to the least skilled labor: the olive harvest and cotton. This time the workers maîtriseraient the entire process, from harvesting to processing: oil, soap, a hand hygiene products; clothing and other fabrics.

Secondly, it is about building an academy for women, a typical institution of the Kurdish left[1]. This is a forum and political development based on knowledge from the experiences of women themselves, independently of the state and the University, where male hegemony has too often led to relay the patriarchal ideology. The academy will include conference rooms and of course, a memory of struggles guardian library and cafeteria. It should also include a health center focused on the needs of women (gynecology, obstetrics ...) and psychological support to victims of war atrocities.

Visibility of women in public space

Third, before the academy would be built a square with a work of art designed by artists from all parts of Kurdistan - probably a mosaic - a tribute to the feminist struggles in the Middle East. The issue is the visibility of women in public space.

To finance these projects, the collective women Kobanî Solidarity seeks to collect 30,000 euros. It organizes support parties and seeks social movement organizations and municipalities. For now, he has received no aid from the French feminist movement, neither "official" nor "alternative". Frequently self-management gave; City Champigny seems interested; the Solidaires union local Rouen held a public meeting on the subject on 11 March.

The money comes gradually. Do not hesitate to invite the women of the group: they are ready to intervene in the exchange-sex days or public meetings.
