(en) Czech, afed: Together against oppression -- Eighth March has been traditionally taking place for women's rights. And this was not different this year. [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Mar 2019 10:59:23 +0200


In Prague at Republika Square, at five o'clock in the afternoon, several hundred people met at the Feminist demonstration against the oppression. In the beginning, women from the organizing Coalition gave a speech on March 8, highlighting the problems of the capitalist and patriarchal system, and called for measures to remedy them. Then there were several speeches. After the talk and performance, he set off a large parade with the center of Prague, accompanied by samba bandu, recorded music and chanting. There were also plenty of banners and pickets in different languages, which was good when passing through the center of the city, full of tourists from many countries. ---- Despite the weather and technical difficulties in the form of dysfunctional megaphones, the mood was good. In Žofín, where the procession ended, a few speeches were waiting for the participants of the march: from SocSol, the climate block or the Alt * pride group, whose members prepared a snack in the form of hot soup for demonstrators. In Kolektivo's speech 115, among other things, it was said: "Society is increasingly permeating authoritarianism. One of his symptoms is growing antifeminism. This is reflected in efforts to discredit or even to prohibit gender studies, as we have seen in the example of Hungary. Or by various attempts to restrict abortion laws or homophobic family referendums. Even with us there will be influential politicians and church leaders who have similar tastes like those in Poland or Slovakia. Eighth March is a reminder that we have to fight for our rights today. "

Several events were also held in the evening, including a feminist and queer party at Bike Jesus, or a benefit to the Independent House of the Clinic in the Liberated House.

Unfortunately, sexism that has not disappeared from our society is undoubtedly the need to draw attention to it, as well as its interconnection with other aspects of the capitalist and hierarchical system. Although the Coalition, on March 8, among its demands, introduces statutory measures to protect women or quota in parliament and in leadership positions, these demands must not be final. We must fight not only for the elimination of patriarchy and capitalism but against oppression and the hierarchy in general. Because the problem is not a man at the head of the state. The problem is the state.
