(en) Italy, Galatea Anarchists: Flyers - 8 March (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

1) The society in which we live is structured in many links that make up a chain of oppression. ---- Hetero-patriarchy is one of these links: it consists of violence and subordination towards women and non-hetero-normated subjectivities. ---- We think it is necessary to question the internalized macho forms and behaviors that are fed to us by this society. ---- At the same time, we criticize the hegemonic positions of a liberal, white and bourgeois feminism that marginalizes and excludes so-called "unregulated" sexualities and bodies, openly advocating a racism and classism typical of the current status quo. ---- Since genres are imposed social constructions, we push for the complete deconstruction of our ways of seeing ourselves and relating to other people, without rules and norms imposed from above on what we want to be.
The fight against hetero-patriarchy cannot be separated from the anti-speciesist one. The exercise of dominion involves all species: the liberation must be total.
We are anarchicu and we distance ourselves from any group, collective or petition coordination that supports the reform of the current system of domination; we do not expect anything from any type of institution and we reject a capitalism with a human face (but fierce and competitive in the lives of all of us)
Our support and our solidarity go to those who are moving towards a self-managed and horizontal society, free from a macho and authoritarian culture.
2) The election of the coalition led by Giorgia Meloni meant that, in the aftermath of the elections, the bar of attacks by right-wing and neo-conservative movements against non-heterosexual and non-male people was raised again.
Thus, a week from March 8, Meloni gives an interview, which is echoed by the words of Cristina Gramolini of ArciLesbica, according to which "gender ideology damages women". Without forgetting the support given by the Psychoanalytical Society to Meloni regarding the negative opinion on the assumption of puberty blocking drugs. On other levels, we have witnessed the presentation of various bills which, without directly questioning law 194, done would go to shore up and undermine access to the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy, proposing to recognize juridical subjectivity to the embryo. A practice already seen in other countries.
What links, for example, a shooting in a queer club, as happened several times in the United States, to the attack on IVG access? Or the fight against "gender ideology" and the transqueerlesboomophobic attacks in the Italian streets during Pride?
The anti-abortion attack goes hand in hand with the aggression towards trans binary and non-binary people and towards the queer community, favoring a concept of the relationship between sexes and genders that is strictly binary and essentially linked to the imaginary of the father of the family straight cisgender, white and middle class. An "ordered" world that never existed - except in the historical and scientific fantasies of certain political subjects - and which often hid institutionalized and socially accepted domestic violence.
For this reason, we have decided to translate materials concerning the struggle for access to abortion in various parts of the world: from the United States to San Marino, from Russia to Latin America, passing through Poland, Hungary, etc.

3) The current Russian-Ukrainian conflict has brought Russia to a considerable social, cultural and economic abyss.
Taking advantage of the conflict, the Duma approved a series of laws against women and non-heteronormative people, all with the blessing of the bourgeoisie and the Russian Orthodox Church.
Addressing social and reproductive justice through a transfeminist lens could become a means of confronting the Putin regime and challenging the Russian establishment. "Gender" in the current Russian political sphere is assuming more and more importance as a matter of national security: from the total ban on the representation of LGBTQ+ people in art and media to the praise of women as mothers.
The Russian government's defense of "traditional values" places it as the primary custodian of the nation's heteronormativity and procreation. The crusade against LGBTQ+ rights, abortion and "gender ideology" unites Putin with those conservative movements around the world that use anti-gender campaigns as "ideological glue" against Western hegemony and in defense of the bourgeoisie and militarist spending.
This is what is happening where, on the one hand, many men have been mobilized, conscripted or fled the country and, on the other hand, the budget for welfare benefits has been reduced (or even depleted) in some areas of the country - in favor of the military and propaganda.
The "Feminist Resistance Against War" is one of Russia's most significant anti-war movements actively campaigning against the Kremlin's attempts to crack down on those groups committed to advocacy for reproduction/social justice. The actions and activities of this resistant movement are psychological, legal and economic support, as well as advice on how to defend oneself on the internet and expatriate the country (especially if people who are mobilized and/or about to be called up request it).
As Galatea Anarchist Group, we have been engaged in writing texts concerning the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and in translating articles from the Russian anti-militarist feminist newspaper "Zhenskaya Pravda" (linked to "Feminist Resistance Against War").
We invite all compagnu to support this reality that opposes war and operates, amidst a thousand difficulties, at the level of actions and activities of mutual aid and counter-information.
