(en) France, UCL - March 8: total feminist strike! (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 22 Jan 2023 08:56:20 +0200

Today, we are on the streets for the battle for pensions and the defense of our pay-as-you-go social protection system, and to fight against the repression of the unemployed and the precarious. The day after tomorrow, we will be wherever the struggle unfolds, against the mega-basins or elsewhere. ---- On March 8, our strike will be total, at work and at home! ---- More than a hundred years ago, on March 8, 1917, the workers of Saint Petersburg (Russia) went on strike and demonstrated to demand bread and peace and thus initiated a historic revolutionary movement. The March 8 fight for women's rights was launched. Today as yesterday, the strike is a powerful tool. ---- The dynamic of the international strike of March 8 was renewed in 2017 thanks, in particular, to the Argentine feminists in struggle. They said to us then: "We, the women in the world, are organizing ourselves in a show of strength and in a common cry: the International Women's Strike. We stop. We are on strike. We practice the world we want to live in.»

In 2019, the feminist strike gained further ground and affected all continents. COVID has slowed us down but our strength is intact.

In this year 2023, our axes of struggle resonate with our news and our condition. We live in a patriarchal, capitalist, racist society in which the fascists seem to have the wind in their sails.

On March 8, 2023, we will have fought to have a dignified retirement while refusing employer and capitalist slavery.

This March 8, 2023, we will make immediate demands. Among them :

equal pay; against the 28.5% less wages imposed on us and our pensions 40% lower than those of men;
The reduction in working time;
The revaluation of professions in so-called feminized sectors by increasing wages;
Funding for family planning centers and support associations for women victims of violence;
Free and free abortion for all.
On March 8, we will carry our self-managing and libertarian social revolution project!
