For two years we have been living in a context of increased death and illness among workers. We have seen up close, in the places where we operate, an inexorable social crisis devastate life and radiate misery among those below; from the fields to the slums, from schools to universities, from the factory to the home office, history marks the present as being a woman is to be the victim of a social symptom. Double, triple, quadruple, fivefold working day, because the main service we owe to society is precisely the social and political position that this genre occupies. Like the work of Sisyphus, destined to the last frontier of Capital and State to exhaustion of carrying the same burden, infinitely, to attest to the place we occupy in this pyramid.
That's why it happens that we receive news from comrades who, shaken by this structure, move away or become disillusioned with the struggle, swallowed up by the social daily life, they miss political movements and organizations. In this scenario, we ask ourselves: what does it mean to take to the streets on March 8th in 2022?
While we watch individualism embody itself from below the concrete, companies abstractly absorb "women's causes" and the election assault political debates, the immediate feeling is that the current conjuncture, favoring those at the top, has made the struggle of women succumb to the limits that capitalism proposes, transforming the essential step taken by Russian strikers into a moment of celebration for bourgeois women. The impression is that we have lost the main component that gives reason to the 8th of March: that of the class struggle as a diagnosis that delimits the objectives of the resistance of Louise Michel, Lucy Parsons, Marina Ginesta and Elvira Boni against the objectives of Harriet Taylor, Suzanne La Follette and Eleanor Roosevelt, because what defines our liberation is the suppression of political and social domination, of a rupture for the construction of an emancipated society.
Let's go back to the principles of the struggle of Russian, Spanish and Zapatistas and let's make the movement of Kurdish women and Brazilian indigenous women for the self-determination of peoples a mirror for our actions. Let's create fronts and committees that guide feminist issues in order to convert them into universal issues for the popular strata. For fellow libertarians, this date, in this moment in which we live, must be the awakening of collective consciousness, that class independence and self-organization of rural and downtown communities, unions and schools are the only alternative to defend the life and dignity that we have. For the offensive front that will make revolutionary barricades possible is built in reaction to the conciliation of classes and to the phenomenon of the particular, of the bourgeois attempt to destroy our universal struggle as a proletarian class, which becomes eloquent and aims to fragment our demands and struggles. Let's make March 8 an uprising against hunger, a demonstration in flames against the deaths that in these last two years have devastated the hope of so many women.
