International Women’s Day Statement: Solidarity with Palestine

As every year on March 8, International Women’s Day, the Industrial Workers of the World are particularly amplifying the feminist call for equality and social justice in our society.

We take this opportunity to stand together against capitalism, to fight racism and to support the right of all women and non-binary people to live and work in safety, free from the threat of social marginalisation, police brutality or deportation.

The capitalist labour exploitation with its low wages concerns all of us but the lack of pay parity and non-paid care work still imposed on women continue to reinforce existing rampant inequalities and a feminisation of poverty.

It does need our collective effort to create a better world, this makes this day a day of class struggle. We need to stand unionised and in solidarity.

We salute the struggle of women worldwide in their effort to organise against exploitation, oppression, precarity and for their human rights and freedom.

We send our solidarity at this time particularly to the women in Palestine who, as most women in situations of war and conflict, are experiencing a special form of oppression, still exacerbated by the lack of access to medical help or even food due to the genocidal denial of their most basic human rights by an occupying power.

An injury to one is an injury to all!

Those who do not move do not notice their chains (Rosa Luxemburg)
