STAND UP on March 8th for International Women’s Day!

March 8:    International Women’s Day
STAND UP - SPEAK OUT - PROTEST - MARCH!

  • Abortion on Demand and Without Apology!
  • End Pornography and Patriarchy: The Enslavement and Degradation of Women!
  • Fight for the Liberation of Women All Over the World!
Abortion rights are in a state of emergency! 203 new restrictions to abortion were passed in the last three years. Five states have only one abortion clinic left. Anti-woman bigots harass women at abortion clinics across the country. Ninety-seven percent of rural counties have no abortion providers. Upcoming court rulings threaten to close dozens more clinics nationwide. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement!

Meanwhile, women are slammed backwards in every realm: from the mainstreaming of violent and degrading pornography to the global epidemic of rape, from a culture that celebrates pimping to the shaming of women who choose to have sex outside of marriage, and from the sexual enslavement of millions of women and girls in the sex industry to the widespread celebration of Pope Francis while he has changed nothing of church doctrine that enslaves and humiliates women and LGBT people.

Take to the streets this International Women’s Day. Through our public resistance we will expose the illegitimacy of this whole war on women and put the woman-haters on notice that we will not sit silently by. We will express our outrage and bring alive a culture of defiance and liberation. We will wake up and rally forth many thousands more, refusing to stop until we win.

The future of women is at stake. Which side are YOU on?

It is through mass resistance

"People must step out into the streets in massive resistance. People must raise their voices uncompromisingly for abortion on demand and without apology. People must put their bodies and their reputations and their social influence on the line.

Mass resistance is a big part of the way that people begin to see the many others who share their desire to see women liberated, combined with agitation, propaganda, and the all-around work of revolutionaries. It is through this whole process that people begin to feel their collective power and strength. It is through mass resistance that people can change how other whole sections of society are thinking and acting. It is through mass resistance that people become more open to the deeper questions of where all this oppression is coming from and what it will take to end it. It is through mass resistance that the total illegitimacy of this whole anti-woman program, how it flies in the face of the will of the people, can be exposed. It is through mass resistance that the rulers can be forced to either back off or risk losing even more ‘legitimacy’ in the eyes of millions more.”

Showdown Around Abortion Rights Intensifies - Stop Patriarchy Leads Defiant Protest Against the Walk for Forced Motherhood

from Stop Patriarchy Bay Area
published at revcom.us

As the anti-abortion movement surges forward on a wave of recently passed legislation that leaves women across the country desperate and trapped in unwanted pregnancies, the movement to End Pornography and Patriarchy: The Enslavement and Degradation of Women (StopPatriarchy.org), led a loud and spirited, uncompromising protest against the 10th annual anti-abortion march in San Francisco.

The anti-abortion march calls itself the “Walk for Life West Coast” and buses in tens of thousands of church-going abortion opponents to march down Market Street in the heart of San Francisco, to protest the 1973 Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion, and to call for the absolute abolition of abortion rights nationwide.  This happens as an addition to the original March for “Life” in Washington DC, whose main organizers made great attempts this year to “reach out to” and welcome, along with its usual Roman Catholic crowd, Christian fascist participants and speakers, such as Troy Newman of the vicious anti-abortion organization Operation Rescue and the champion of oppressive “traditional” family values, James Dobson of Focus on the Family [CNN].

Blaming the Victim will NEVER solve the problem! We Need to Tell The TRUTH because it Matters!

By Pete Ha

Do you believe “Abortion on demand and without apology” is too extreme? Do you agree with the statement but believe others could not? If so, think about who this applies to. Should SOME women have access to abortion and others cannot? Should SOME women apologize for their abortions? Would you allow someone EVER to blame themselves? Would you settle with their reasoning and validate their self-blame for WHATEVER this culture that degrades, subjugates, commodifies women has to say about women to continue these lies that women are incubators, abortion is murder, and fetuses are babies? NO, you would say “I can understand why you’re blaming yourself, but I have to say it’s not your fault. You’re not alone. 1 in 3 women have had an abortion and it’s not murder. There is NOTHING wrong with abortions. What your family or religion or culture dictates is not true at all. You are a beautiful human being capable of making your own decisions.” For those who do not want to have an abortion, they don’t have to. Abortion is a fundamental right for women, and no one has the right to shame or harass women for what they do with their bodies. We can ALL be a part of the LIBERATION GENERATION and say ABORTION ON DEMAND so anyone who wants or needs one can get one and WITHOUT APOLOGY so we can begin to no longer live in a culture that shames, blames, or forces HALF OF HUMANITY, that is, the female gender, to apologize for WHATEVER.
