Recent newsletter from the World March of Women
WMW International Newsletter n. 04, December 2012
Throughout 2012 we have organised our resistance to the European Union’s austerity measures in the form of a continental campaign that demands the reorganisation of the economy and politics so that our lives are worth living. We support and share the resistance of our Northern Peruvian sisters against the Conga mining project and of so many other sisters in their own territories. These resistances are the basis for our rejection of the market’s false solutions to socio-environmental problems, and we expressed them strongly during the People’s Summit for Social and Environmental Justice mobilisations and assemblies, parallel to the Rio+20 UN conference. We also stand in solidarity – along with other women’s organisations and social movements – with the Palestinian people, in order that they may recover their territory, break down the walls, and live in justice and peace.
Neither extreme heat, nor extreme cold, have stopped us from occupying the streets once more at the end of this year: the energy that comes from our indignation, our dreams and the victories we have achieved has motivated us in our 24 Hours of Feminist Action around the World.
