(en) anarkismo.net - Argentina: It is law for the struggle of those below! by FAR - OAC - OAT - FAR - OAC - OAT

Date Sat, 9 Jan 2021 12:58:17 +0200


We translated a note of December 31, 2020, signed by the Anarchist Federation of Rosario, the Anarchist Organization of Córdoba and the Anarchist Organization of Tucumán on the approval of the law that legalizes abortion in Argentina. ---- The green wave that has been growing for years in Argentina and Latin America yesterday was able to celebrate the approval of the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Law. It is a very felt demand for all women and pregnant bodies in our class, since we are the poorest people who have an abortion in the worst underground conditions, risking our bodies to serious health problems, prison and death. This historic struggle has the green light for the strength of those below to advance the fundamental rights of life, and not only to survive but also imposes the machinery of capitalism and its destructive voracity.

Argentina: It is law for the struggle of those below!
The green wave that has been growing for years in Argentina and Latin America yesterday was able to celebrate the approval of the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Law. It is a very felt demand for all women and pregnant bodies in our class, since we are the poorest people who have an abortion in the worst underground conditions, risking our bodies to serious health problems, prison and death. This historic struggle has the green light for the strength of those below to advance the fundamental rights of life, and not only to survive, but also imposes the machinery of capitalism and its destructive voracity.
On this dawn of December 30, the Argentine Senate finally had to definitively approve the Law on Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy, after years of social pressure exerted by the feminist movement, political parties, unions, social and student organizations; as well as by the group of women and pregnant bodies, on the streets, in the historic National Women's Meetings, today Plurinational of women, lesbians, trans, transvestites and non-binaries, as in each workplace, study, in each territory, doing debate and the struggle for the autonomy of our bodies and our right to decide.

Since the end of the 19th century in this region, our fellow anarchists have been taking a stand, organized from below with their working class sisters, building a history of resistance against patriarchy and capitalism. From Virginia Bolten with La Voz de la Mujer, María Collazo, Juana Rouco Buela, Luisa Lallana, Julia García among many other companions, including those who faced the repression face to face in the 1960s and 1970s, Elsa Martínez, María Esther Tello, Hilda Forti, Pirucha Ramos among others. All of them are part of the great history of feminist struggles in this country, which today manages to uproot legal abortion from the political class, and through the immense organization and mobilization that has been driving the Campaign for Safe and Free Legal Abortion formed in 2003, managing to bring together the action of union organizations,

Undoubtedly the government of Alberto Fernández, and a large part of Peronism, will try to draw a political balance from this feat, it is something that is already seen with speeches that present this law as a gift resulting from the "political will" of the shift workers who they administer the patriarchal state. Even more cynical is the attempt on the part of the progressive to constantly reconcile with the most reactionary, conservative and sexist sectors, such as the Catholic and Evangelical churches, having dealt with a project that includes conscientious objection and with the attempt to negotiate conditions for the legal abortion. Although it is an immense joy to know that from now on it will be an obligation for the health system to contemplate the decision of pregnant women at the time of interrupting or continuing with the pregnancy, we must not let our guard down. There is still a long journey of struggle ahead for the real implementation of Safe and Free Legal Abortion in all corners, it remains to fight against the conscientious objection, but legal pitfalls that can present themselves and the obstacles that these reactionary anti-right sectors want to interpose. And, of course, a long way to end all types of patriarchal violence.

That is how we understand this necessary step as part of a process of struggle that will not end or will end in the near future. Seeing the results of our constant organization, over the decades, reaffirms the path of collective, sustained, solidary and class action. We know that nothing truly transformative will come from the State and its structures, but this necessary step further allows us to see the realization of new demands on the horizon. As politically organized anarchists, we understand that the only possible course in this period is the organization and struggle for more and more significant demands for the oppressed and those who can change this capitalist and patriarchal system in the bud.

Thus, legal abortion is a victory as a result of historical mobilizations, assemblies in the neighborhoods, organized teachers who apply ESI (Integral Sexual Education, established by law) in schools, giving space for classes to be vehicles of information, emancipation and discovery; from the union and student organization, from the more than 30 today Plurinational Meetings of women, lesbians, trans, transvestites and non-binaries.

It is an achievement for those below, thanks to popular struggle and committed and constant militancy amidst so much resistance to the harsh coups of governments and capital. We deserve to celebrate all this huge fight against clandestinity, to strengthen and consolidate ourselves for the battles that lie ahead. We claim this path of building popular power, with the strength of our predecessors and our history of struggle. With the power we have from the bottom, the marginalized, the exploited, the oppressed to build our own destiny and end the patriarchal, colonial and capitalist oppression. For socialism and freedom.

IT IS LAW FOR THE FIGHT OF LOW!
FOLLOW ORGANIZED, IN THE STREETS, FIGHTING AGAINST ALL PATRIARCAL AND CAPITALIST OPPRESSION!
ARRIBA LAS QUE LUCHAN!
