Left On The Move Newsletter – 07.06

The highlight of this Left on the Move Newsletter is the booklet “FEMINISM AND ANTICAPITALISM – Women in the construction of an alternative of power”, produced by the women of the Socialist Left Movement (MES). Systematizing the accumulation of feminism in the organization, the text that we publish below has as its main objective to face the challenge of “organizing the resistance from the women’s struggle and building for Brazil an alternative of power to the left, socialist, connected with the force of world feminism”.

Another article shared in this Bulletin is a report by Tamara Knezevic, leader of solidaritéS, about the victorious feminist strike held by Swiss workers on June 14. In response to a call from the congress of women delegates of the Union of Swiss Syndicates (USS), the Swiss crossed their arms and went to the streets in order to demand the implementation of the laws of gender equality conquered by the feminist movement in the country throughout history.

This Bulletin also includes an analysis by Gilbert Achcar on the democratic rebellions that the world is witnessing in Sudan and Algeria. On the political situation in the Algerian country and the challenges of the revolutionary left, we publish an article by Hocine Belalloufi, a journalist and militant of the Socialist Workers Party (PST). Regarding the immense mobilization of the young people of Hong Kong against the attempt of the Chinese regime to interfere even more in the civil rights of this semi-autonomous region, we have prepared a brief retrospective of the Umbrellas Movement.

Finally, the Portal of the Left on the Move joins the campaign for the freedom of Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar, Pakistani deputies elected to the Parliament who are now suffering persecution by the State.

A good reading for everyone, and see you soon!
