(en) Brazil, Libertarian Mulheres Resistem - May 1st is a day of struggle for all working women! - Women Resist RJ (pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 6 May 2021 10:22:00 +0300


Today, in yet another day of struggle and resistance, we arrived at that May 1st - Day of struggle of the working class - in the midst of a harsh context for the workers in our country. We are living in times of frightening intensification and deepening of the economic and social crisis caused by the neoliberal death policy, added to the COVID-19 pandemic for over a year. We have passed the mark of 400,000 lives lost to a virus that could already be under control, of the 14 million unemployed people dependent on negligible emergency aid, with an informal job rate of around 40%. Also in the heights are the hospital occupancy rates, the price and capacity of the means of transport, the cost of living. We, as working women, add to these alarming numbers the growth of gender-based violence, the unquestionable overload of multiple journeys, the burden of care tasks. Racist, homophobic and transphobic violence add innumerable layers of oppression and precariousness to our class. It is also essential to talk about our reproductive rights. In a country where abortion is criminalized, leaving thousands of women exposed to real state femicide, we overheard the government suggesting that this is not the "time to get pregnant". As if choosing was everyone's right. Today many homes face the pain of grief and the despair of hunger and unemployment. Once again, the importance of a historic date of struggle is to reinforce that even in the face of the greatest difficulties, we have the choice of the path of resistance, mutual support and solidarity. There are many examples of empowerment and help among workers, that in the most diverse places of work and housing they have been organizing the daily fight against all and any type of injustice and oppression and for the right to survive and exist. We at Mulheres Resistem - RJ reinforce that the day of the struggle of the working class is the day of extolling the importance of trust in the strength of our hands, as it is from this strength that we have always promoted the most diverse struggles, in cities, in the countryside , in the neighborhoods, slums and peripheries. This must be our horizon more than ever: that of affirming hope in another possible world, built with the strength of our courage and solidarity! we reinforce that the day of the struggle of the working class is the day of extolling the importance of trust in the strength of our hands, as it is from this strength that we have always promoted the most diverse struggles, in cities, in the countryside, in neighborhoods, in slums and peripheries .
