(en) [Spain] Three CNT feminists reprehended for participating in the March 8 feminist strike in Gijón By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

#It was also Piquetera ---- During the journey of #HuelgaFeminista8M , many of us went out. ---- As on any strike day, many informative pickets were held in a large number of towns in the Spanish state, including Gijón. ---- There, a women's pack ran through dozens of outlets in the city delivering informational pamphlets to women workers about their right to strike and chanting feminist class slogans. ---- The journey went smoothly until the picket arrived at the Mango store[Spanish textile multinational with more than 2,400 stores in 107 countries], where the manager tried to prevent us from entering, threatening and attacking some of the companions who wanted to distribute leaflets to the workers . ---- This guy later warned the police and chased us for more than an hour through the city streets taking photos. He pushed at one of the comrades, but he at her. If he is the whistleblower, we do not know what assaults he claims because there was nothing on our part. We did not give it importance and we followed the track through other stores.

Days later the police detained a companion in his domicile and summoned two more to give testimony, that were the police station accompanied by people who expressed their rejection to the harassment towards the companions.

Such macho assaults that we denounce will not stop our struggle. Neither police intimidation, nor the repression to which are being submitted the comrades held in Burgos or Barcelona during an information picket also in 8M.

Mango's reaction does not surprise us: it perfectly represents what thousands of women fought on March 8. Through fashion, it has contributed to imposing a model of anti-natural beauty, under abusive labor conditions in the trade, for not already enter into the conditions of those who produce their clothes.
