We want to express our condolences to the family of Heather Heyer, our IWW comrade assassinated by a fascist, and our deep solidarity to the IWW, Antifa, the DSA and the ISO. We are in this together and are committed to building a united front of working-class forces to politically and militarily defeat these groups and enforce our democratic rights. As the IWW statement eloquently says, from now on “We must defend each other. That means all of us. An injury to one is an injury to all.”

This March 8, women around the world will write another important page in the history of struggle for their rights. In an unprecedented action, in more than 20 countries this international day of working women is calling for a strike, and we will take the streets.
By International Women’s Secretariat – IWL-FI.
Over the last years, we have seen how women are at the front line of resistance. Working and poor women are teaching us us how to confront imperialist plans, how to resist invasions (Syria, Palestine, Kurdish women), how to fight for education (Mexico), how to defend what is already conquered (Poland), how to claim for equal pay (Iceland), how to fight for our lives (India, Argentina), and a long etcetera.
A year and a half ago, on June 3, under the slogan #NiUnaMenos, a group of Argentine journalists called to mobilize against femicides and violence against women. On that J3, the streets of Buenos Aires were small before the largest mobilization the country has seen so far in defense of women’s rights. This demonstration had great impact around the world and the slogan became international: while facing repression, Mexican women shouted the same slogan and added ¡Vivas nos queremos! [we wants us alive]. And so began women’s fight all over the planet, accompanied by thousands of workers.
