THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: WOMEN ON THE MARCH

Doing honour once again to Woman’s Day, thousands of peasant, working and unemployed women are on the march in Brazil. They are marching to express their rejection of the criminalization of social movements, against violence falling on women, against agribusiness and monoculture eucalyptus and sugarcane plantations. They are also marching in defence of food and energy sovereignty and of public investment in peasant farming.

This is happening not only in Brazil. In the five continents the World March of Women invites people to march “in the struggle against privatization of natural resources and public services. We are going to march for food and energy sovereignty and against destruction and the control of our territories and against the false solutions to face climate change.”.

All over the world there are women who are becoming aware, getting organized, making demands and becoming empowered.

This bulletin is from them and for them.
