(en) alas barricadas: [Argentina] Neither a senate nor a law will make us free by Gavroche (ca, it) [machine translation]

Text: Neither the land nor women are territory of conquest. Legal abortion for sovereignty to flourish over our new destinies ---- NOT A SENATE, NOR A LAW WILL MAKE US FREE ---- We are convinced that only struggle and organization gives us freedom. We do not want more deaths for clandestine abortions. What happened on August 8 showed the immensity of the feminist movement and the weakness and exhaustion of the parliament, of the "bourgeois representative" system. The pibas, cakes and trans males are going to keep aborting, we will continue accompanying so that it is as safe as possible, however, those "supposed representatives of the people" who earn hundreds of thousands of pesos -which only represent the businessmen- have coerced the possibility of legalizing abortion. Legalize the right to decide on our own bodies.

In the Congress we listened to electoral speeches, trying to take advantage of a few minutes of "fame" to win a couple of new votes, we heard how they laughed in our faces, how they denigrated us, how they lied, how they misinformed. We listened and we saw how a group of cynical people, totally oblivious to the reality of the working people, sat down - like in a tea party - to ramble and then choose to continue with the chains that they put in our wombs. What do they know about life and choosing them?

We are the ones who put the body, those who spend cold, hunger, fear, humiliation, pain. We are the ones who carry the sword of "justice" - always patriarchal and bourgeois - on our heads, to be stigmatized, criminalized, persecuted. We are robbed of our lives in rooms full of dirt with whatever they have on hand to perform an abortion, after filling their pockets with the money we get, many times, taking the plate of food off the table. We mourn companions that the State murders by condemning us to hiding. We had to organize ourselves, by lung, to be able to accompany the pregnant people who want to decide about their body and their life. We are the ones that we have to gather from "a puchitos" and we juggle to charge a cell phone, one goes up, buy what is necessary and help the partner who wants to have an abortion. We are the ones who carry dozens of cases in our backs and collapse at times because we demand until our head explodes. We have to answer calls, give hugs and dry tears because hypocritical social condemnation weighs on the girls who want to decide what do they know from their comfortable seats?

They are only interested in maintaining the business of illegality that includes private practices, international medication traffic: 15 billion pesos a year, only in Argentina. And in that network are Laboratorios Beta (located in Buenos Aires), the only one that manufactures and markets Misoprostol, a giant that moves annually one billion pesos with that monopoly; the doctors who charge between 30 thousand and 50 thousand pesos to perform an abortion in a clinic; they only want to generate more money at the expense of our bodies. In addition to maintaining the power of the Church, that hypocritical institution, which is filled with money from the State and restricts the freedom to decide of pregnant women and people; but it does not say anything, but on the contrary, it guarantees that the priests violate children.

From ASL we call, today more than ever, to redouble the political, financial and logistical support to the Councils and groups of dissident women and genders that accompany abortion cases. They are the ones who all over the country bring safe information about the use of Misoprostol and reduce the risks. In the same way, as health workers, we have only to commit ourselves to continue deepening the union organization in order to guarantee access to the Legal Interruptions of Pregnancy that exist today and now try to adjust them.

The streets are dying green increasingly, thousands of comrades went out to fight. The streets spoke, and socially the stigma is beginning to be erased. We must rethink what democracy we want, clearly this representative is no more, the institutions of this bourgeois democracy will never be on our side. Just as the State does not solve crises, it does not guarantee anyone's freedom either. We bet to create the direct democracy of the town, to build a true self-defense and to face us when the necessity demands it. We are no longer solxs, we are all together, we are millions.

Up those who fight!
