International Women’s Day March and Rally
in Support of the European "Great Walk" from Germany to Holland against Anti-Woman Legislation in Iran
We march to support this call by people in the Iranian women’s movement:
If you are against death by stoning!
If you are against forced veiling!
If you are against prosecution and imprisonment of women!
If you are against lashing a woman’s body!
If you are against any form of male chauvinism!
If you are against all unequal medieval laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran against women!
Join the great walk of women against anti-woman laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran on March 8, 2006!
Where: Gather at the Downtown Berkeley Bart Station on Shattuck Avenue
When: Wednesday, March 8 4pm
Who: Women and all who support their emancipation
No to Theocracy - Oppose the anti-woman laws of Iran AND Bush’s anti-woman McCrusade!
Support the Right to Abortion and Birth Control!
No to US Imperialism/ No US Attacks on Iran!
Unleash the Fury of Women as a Mighty Force for Revolution!
Iranian women in exile and hundreds of others are marching across Europe beginning in Germany on March 4 and ending up at the International Court in The Hague on March 8. This historic protest will highlight the just struggle of Iranian women against their oppression, and they feel strongly this march will help mobilize people around the world in the struggle against imperialism which they maintain is the "protector of male chauvinism in every corner of this world."
