 LEFT ON THE MOVE NEWSLETTER: MARCH 8th!

In this special newsletter, on the eve of March 8th, we begin with a brief retrospective of important moments in the struggle of women in recent years, both in confronting patriarchy and being on the front line against oppression and attacks on the rights of the people. In Brazil, we have a responsibility to defeat Bolsonaro – a responsibility expressed in the first text, by the women of the International Committee of MES, and in the text ‘Women ask for the impeachment of Bolsonaro, why not?’ by Sâmia Bomfim, federal deputy for the PSOL and the MES. We have also included the text ‘A feminist movement that redefines liberation and reimagines Palestine’, which takes an important place in the international situation, and the elaboration of Julia Câmara, a militant of the Spanish anti-capitalists, in ‘Una agenda propia’.

We wish you all a good reading – one that will inspire you to take to the streets with all your strength tomorrow and in the coming days.
by International Comission of MES

8M: WOMEN ON THE FRONT LINES TO DEFEAT NEOLIBERALISM AND AUTHORITARIANISM IN THE WORLD | by Clara Baeder and Sara Soares

In Brazil, we have the central task of defeating Bolsonaro and his attempt to close the regime, in an agenda of struggles which first day is the 8th. It is the moment to occupy the streets as the main space of demands, for more rights, in defense of women’s lives, from the slogan #EleNãoPodeContinuar for the advance of women’s struggle – and of all other sectors of society (blackness, youth, workers) – in Brazil is directly related to the defeat of this government and all that it represents.

WOMEN ASK FOR THE IMPEACHMENT OF BOLSONARO, WHY NOT?
| by Sâmia Bomfim

On March 8, the feminist movement will take to the streets to reject, just as we did in the “He No” acts, the repugnant and macho president Jair Bolsonaro. Demonstrations are being organized in all regions of the country. It will be a fundamental moment to defend Brazil from this man who attacks our lives and our future.

TAL’AT: A FEMINIST MOVEMENT THAT IS REDEFINING LIBERATION AND REIMAGINING PALESTINE | by Riya Alsanah and Hala Marshood

We aspire to build a different world, for our emancipation is hinged on the shattering of capitalism, colonialism, and patriarchy all at once. Hence, Tal’at does not priorities making institutional demands, be it from the Palestinian Authority and definitely not the Israeli state; our struggle is an internal Palestinian one for the building of our social and political fabric, embarking on a process of radical collective healing, that informs our liberation struggle, in discourse and practice.

A new page to support and build new alternatives in Latin America and the world, defending the power of the workers and people against the 1% of the rich and privileged, and a society without exploitation.
