(en) avtonom.org: Belarusian anarchist action on the day of international women's solidarity [machine translation]
Fri, 15 Mar 2019 08:56:43 +0200
On the international day of women's solidarity, the anarchist group "Friends of anarchy"
held a rally, making an installation in the Chelyuskintsev Park area in Minsk, as well as
distributing leaflets. The installation calls to recall the real meaning of the holiday -
the struggle for equal rights and women's emancipation. "The place of the woman is where
the woman herself decides"! - reads one of the posters. ---- We are convinced that just as
the emancipation of women is impossible without a social revolution, so the revolution is
impossible without the emancipation of women. Capitalism and patriarchy are intertwined
with a strong chain, and modern liberal feminism only turns a woman into a "free"
consumer, allowing capitalism to accept the struggle and make it another product. There
are thousands of poor seamstresses in factories printing t-shirts with feminist prints for
one conventional rich woman. Our response to this injustice is anarcho-feminism. First of
all, patriarchy is a system of power, and as an anarchist, we intend to destroy it along
with other power constructs - the state and capitalism.
March 8 is not a celebration of flowers, perfumes and gift certificates.
March 8 is not about femininity, simple female happiness and "stay as beautiful as ever!"
March 8 is a day of women's solidarity in the struggle for equal rights and emancipation!
Dedicated to all women: those who have ever experienced violence, economically and
socially oppressed, fighting on the front of the revolution for their freedom and the
right to be heard!
