Protest on International Women’s Day

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, we will be a part of the protest organized by the Alliance of Internationalist Feminists. Below, we repost the call for the demonstration: Down with Imperialist Feminism! See you there!

“Colonial and neoliberal powers construct a single model of feminism: the feminism of the oppressors that is limited to a so-called “women’s rights’” framework to serve their interests. This feminism is an accomplice in the system of oppression. Their “democratic” saviorism justifies their wars, occupation, detention centers, murderous borders and walls. This is Imperialist Feminism.

Imperialist feminism has always been part of the colonial project, serving as the “innocent” face of colonial violence. The “protection” of western-centric feminism has historically been used to economically and militarily subjugate countries of the Global South. Billions of dollars and euros go to fund occupation, genocides, oppressive regimes and exploitation in the name of liberating and saving women.

The new wave of fascism in Germany becomes loud and clear with the hypocrisy of imperialist feminism and its love for performative action. The deceptive activism that calls out against facism on the street while they’re complicit in the genocidal actions of the fascist israeli regime and oppressing & criminalizing any voice of palestinian resistance.

We do not forget their bloody hands, currently and over the centuries, in the Global South: in Palestine, Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Kurdistan, Tigray, Artsakh, Peru, Libya, Iraq and all the countries with brutal colonial histories. Let’s take to the streets to show the corrupt powers of this world that we neither forget nor forgive.

We, Alliance of Internationalist Feminists, know that self-organization and self-defense are our strength in fighting against imperialism, fascism, capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy. Only an internationalist resistance will put an END to colonial borders and imperialist agendas.

We are standing with the resistance of our siblings from the Global South in their fight against patriarchy, capitalism, apartheid, fascism, displacement, land theft and ethnic cleansing. We are countless and our history and struggles for liberation and justice are intertwined.

None of us is free until all of us are free!
