(en) alas barricadas: CNT 8M: The great day of struggle of women by Gavroche -- Success of the first feminist strike (ca) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 13 Mar 2018 09:37:13 +0200

The women have gone out massively to the street today in the first feminist general strike, summoned in all the Spanish State by the CNT together with other class union organizations. ---- During the night and the morning of today, different events and information pickets called by CNT have been developed throughout the country, in most of the localities together with the feminist movements or other unions calling for a 24-hour strike. The follow-up has been remarkable and absences have been noted in all the work centers. ---- In spite of the almost constant rain, the manifestations of the afternoon have been the most numerous of the last years. Women have occupied the public space to claim their rights and freedom. And today, the traditional red and black flag has been replaced by a purple and black one to show that the women of the CNT will continue in the fight.

CNT considers the call for the first 24-hour feminist general strike to be an achievement, despite the disinformation carried out by some government-affiliated media outlets and unions with other interests, not forgetting the multiple obstacles imposed by some companies and administration in the negotiation of minimum services.

In the absence of precise data on monitoring, from CNT we believe that the success of the first feminist strike has been incontestable. The dissemination of feminist demands has been greatly amplified thanks to the call for a 24-hour strike, as seen in the spectacular increase in attendance at the demonstrations in the afternoon.

On the other hand, since CNT several anti-union behaviors have been detected in relation to the strike in several companies, against which the appropriate legal measures will be taken in the next few days.

CNT congratulates the feminist movement on this day and calls on all workers to continue fighting against capitalism and patriarchy in all areas and at all levels. Because women and men have to oppose exploitation in all its forms, as the only way to approach other care, another sexuality and another economy in which there is no room for this heteropatriarchal unjust, outdated and agonizing system that we suffer.
