In defence of Everyone's survival and welfare and for an End to cuts, poverty and discrimination.
Do we still need International Women's Day (IWD)?
Just listen to the government and Alan Sugar.
On Saturday 12 March 2011, women in a number of countries will mark the Centenary of IWD with a MOTHERS MARCH, to defend Everyone's survival and welfare and calling for an End to cuts, poverty and discrimination.
Where Marches are being held:
New Japan Women’s Association
5-10-20 Koishikawa, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 112-0002 Japan
It is North and it is South
The Global Women’s strike
The Mothers’ march
March twelve, twenty one-one
This is not a poem: it is a salute
to the world’s Women and the Mothers among them.
In my native Guyana I would be in their ranks
With a few other men
Like the manly Payday Brothers of Ingland “the Bitch”
That once saw a strong woman as a witch.
QMessenger 21 Feb-6 Mar
Queen Mary Students' Union
On Saturday 12th March 2011 women, men and children will assemble in London to demonstrate against the coalition cuts to welfare and advocate for adequate financial support for mothers working in the home.
