(en) France, UCL AL #326 - Antipatriarchates, Ukraine: war is irreconcilable with feminist values (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 26 Apr 2022 09:19:22 +0300

In the first days of the war, at the end of February, there were many demonstrations all over Russia. Russian and Ukrainian feminists have not been left out, against a war of which women are the first victims. ---- Feminist collectives have launched an appeal, signed Resistance feminist anti-war, which recalls how any war is incompatible with feminist objectives: war is synonymous with violence, poverty, forced displacement, broken lives, insecurity and lack of future. It is irreconcilable with the essential values and objectives of the feminist movement.

Their call also emphasizes what wars do to women: war exacerbates gender inequalities and sets back human rights gains for many years. War brings with it not only the violence of bombs and bullets, but also sexual violence: as history shows, during war the risk of being raped is multiplied for all women. The " traditional " values defended by Putin obviously include patriarchy, we remember that the criminalization of domestic violence was removed in 2017 if they do not send the victim to hospital.

The signatories call on feminists around the world for solidarity: " We are the opposition to war, patriarchy, authoritarianism and militarism. We are the future that will prevail. »

Yelena Osipova, who survived the Wehrmacht siege of Leningrad in World War II, was arrested twice while demonstrating with her anti-war placards.

Journalist Marina Ovsyannikova walked behind the main newscaster with an anti-war placard, the world and the whole of Russia saw her. She is now stuck in Russia and will be tried.

On March 8, feminist groups went to World War II monuments to lay yellow and blue flowers.

A heroic action by journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, on Pervy Kanal (Channel n°1). She now faces fifteen years in prison.

But protesting in Russia has become almost impossible. The use of the word " war " is prohibited and punishable by fifteen years in prison and demonstrations are suppressed. By mid-March, at least 15,000 people had already been arrested. The first arrest leads to fifteen days in prison, the second to thirty days, these sentences are decided administratively. The third leads to criminal justice and is liable to five years of forced labor.

For opponents of Putin, the invasion of Ukraine is only the continuation of Putin's policy of conquest, a conquest exercised for twenty years against Crimea, Chechnya and Georgia. And the repressive measures taken by other countries may not have the expected effects because the Russians do not have the information to understand them, because it is very late and also because all the big companies do not not play the game. The solidarity of peoples is vital.
