Here we share theMay 1 st analysis of our FOB Autonoma comrades, who took advantage of this date to once again recall the role of women and all the oppressed on the front line in this crisis. We reiterate our full support to them, long live those who fight ! ---- The 1 stof May is a date that commemorates the Anti-Capitalist, anti-patriarchal, anti-colonial and anti-racist. Our ancestors struggled like us to live in a fairer world so that those below would stop living in misery and structural violence. ---- What does that make living a 1 stMay in isolation ? ---- We are in a state of emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the dengue epidemic. We live in physical isolation without access to food, health and overcrowding. This situation is worsening in villages and neighborhoods, where access to basic resources is increasingly limited, in a situation of vulnerability.

In this context, the need for food in the neighborhoods is fundamental. In many cases, the number of people going to popular canteens in search of food has at least doubled. These spaces are supported by women, who work in a very precarious situation and cannot access the minimum elements of hygiene necessary for these tasks, such as masks, gloves, alcohol and disinfectant. Those who perform essential jobs are also precarious, exposed in unsanitary conditions and most of them are "feminized jobs " Because they are linked to caring roles that are generally seen as feminine. We, the members of the cooperatives, are the supporters of our families. We depend on other jobs and exchanges to support us. The government has taken a "palliative" measure to overcome the situation of misery but the IFE * has not yet arrived. Very few of the migrant communities were able to access the emergency grant. In addition, the government has increased the budget of the repressive forces and, in recent days, has strengthened the presence of the army throughout the country, in which case the money is sufficient to meet their needs. Since the early forties, we have suffered from abuse of power by the police and various military groups.

And, as if this context was not enough, women, lesbians, transvestites and transsexuals, many live this isolated quarantine with their attackers. From the start of the quarantine until April 26, there have been 32 feminicides and calls to the 144 ** have increased by 40%, reaching 87 feminicides and trans-feminicides since the beginning of the year. Once again, we see the absence of effective policies to deal with this problem and the patriarchal state which ignores the situation of thousands of victims of macho violence.

It is we, the women, the lesbians, the transvestites, the transsexuals, who once again put our bodies forward to build networks in order to bring food to each household. We continue to do care work and we are the ones who are the most exposed every day. That is why, on workers' day, we denounce the imposition of reproductive work, double exploitation and the violence we suffer in our jobs and in our homes.

Our lives are worth it ! Long live the workers who bring the world to life from their work, their neighborhood and their house ! For a quarantine without precariousness, with an income for all those below those without hunger !
