International Women’s Day

8 March 2018 @ 0 h 00 min - 20 March 2018 @ 23 h 59 min GMT

On International Women’s Day, we, the women of La Via Campesina – peasants, indigenous women, Afro-descendants, mestizas, fishers, pastoralists, women from urban and rural areas, belonging to different organisations with different forms of mobilisation and activism – want to salute the women workers of the world.

A tribute to the women who gave their lives, in the struggle for the rights of women in different areas, who suffered torture, sexual and moral violations, who were disappeared, imprisoned, beheaded, massacred for defending life, dignity, Mother Earth and the rights of women. We will follow their examples, their traces, legacies that they have left for us in different spaces of work as well as day-to-day lives.

For these reasons, we know that, in order to guarantee respect for our rights, much more is asked of us at this time. We must have the courage to confront that even greater monster which sustains the patriarchy and is the source of all of the injustice suffered by workers all over the world. It is in this spirit that we salute the struggles, the activities, marches, mobilisations, and meetings of the women throughout the world who are confronting the forces of patriarchy and capitalism that threaten the lives of women, nature itself, and the life of the planet.
