To mark the 100th anniversay of International Women's Day. Invest in caring not killing! WOMEN, MEN, YOUNG, OLD, BRING YOUR CHILDREN, FRIENDS, DRUMS, DEMANDS! We march because: • Mothers produce/care for the world's people, while war & profit destroy us. • Most women do caring work – mothers, grandmothers, daughters, partners. Unrecognized, unpaid or low paid we care for children, older people, people with disabilities, Vetrans, each other.... • In Haiti & Palestine, wherever there is an occupation, women do the survival work without which resistance would be impossible. • Resources go to weapons & banks, not to caregivers, healthy food, accessible affordable housing, breast-feeding support, health care, education, living wages, pay equity, care of Mother Earth. • Budget cuts increase hunger & threaten those of us on lowest incomes, starting with communities of color. • Poverty, uncaring social services & immigration laws tear children from us. • Sex workers & homeless people are jailed not supported. As in Oscar Grant shooting, police use our children as target practice. LGBTQ denied civil rights. • We’re robbed of benefits, services & wages that our unwaged & low waged labor & taxes have paid for. We face eviction & foreclosures. Everywhere people are risking their lives to bring change – from Palestine to Egypt, from Haiti to Colombia, from the Philippines to Kenya & Nigeria … Mothers Marches in CA, Philly, Haiti, Guyana, India, Peru, UK Planning Group Bay Area: Haiti Action Committee; Legal Action for Women; USPROStitutes Collective; Wages Due Lesbians; Ruckus Society; Women of Color/GWS and individuals from the Bay Area and Santa Cruz.
