Join us for a March and Celebration of the 105th Anniversary of INTERNATIONAL WORKING WOMEN’S DAY

UPHOLD the LEGACY & POWER of WOMEN'S RESISTANCE HERE and ABROAD!

Sunday, MARCH 8, 2015, Oakland, CA
Where: Lake Merritt Amphitheater (12th st. & 1st ave.)

12PM Rally & Speak Out for Justice
12:30 PM March to Rise & Resist
1:30 PM Celebration for Women's Strength & Resistance

In honor of the first women strikers in 1909, we will be commemorating the 105th Anniversary of International Working Women’s Day on March 8th. Join us as we uphold the Legacy and Power of Women's resistance here and abroad!

At the forefront of global resistance against increasing violence and imperialism are women of color. Here in the United States, the state has continued to perpetuate violence against its own people, specifically people of color. Women in the U.S. will continue to be in the forefront of many battles — opposing U.S. wars and occupations while demanding funding for human needs, defending collective bargaining in their unions, demanding wages that allow their families to keep up with the cost of living, stopping foreclosures so they can stay in their homes, demanding contraceptives and other free preventive health care, and fighting for basic rights to affordable education, quality health care and housing, and good-paying jobs. Join us as we March to demand an end to gentrification, state violence, and militarization!

We will also have a cultural celebration after the march to remember and lift up all the women and Trans women who have come before us in the struggle. We will celebrate their legacies they have left behind and honor the women and Trans women who are fighting in the forefront today for self-determination, freedom, and liberation.

Bring your signs, banners, and noisemakers and march with us!

Saludos, compañeras! Favor de únase a nosotros en la conmemoración del 105 Aniversario del Día Internacional de la Mujer Trabajadora el 8 de marzo de 2015.

Las mujeres en los EE.UU. seguirán siendo en la vanguardia de muchas batallas - oponiéndose a las guerras y ocupaciones, exigiendo la financiación de las necesidades humanas, la defensa de la negociación colectiva en sus sindicatos, los salarios que permiten a sus familias a sobrevivir, una parada a las ejecuciones hipotecarias para que familias puedan mantenerse en sus hogares, y servicios de salud preventiva gratuita, y la lucha por los derechos básicos a la educación asequible y salud, viviendas, y trabajaos de calidad.

En el Día Internacional de la Mujer Trabajadora de 2015, recordamos y levantamos todas las mujeres y mujeres transgéneros que nos han precedido en la lucha. Vamos a celebrar sus legados que han dejado atrás y honrar a las mujeres y las mujeres transgéneros que están luchando en la vanguardia de hoy por la libertad y la liberación.

Por favor, háganos saber si su organización desea endosar la Acción y Celebración el 8 de Marzo.

Para obtener más información y para endosar, enviar un correo a Irma Bajar en gabrielawomen [at] gmail.com.
