Fight Trump’s misogyny and bigotry! Come rally and march for women’s rights on March 8, 6pm, at Westlake Park!
“The massive women’s marches of 21 January may mark the beginning of a new wave of militant feminist struggle. As a first step, we propose to help build an international strike against male violence and in defense of reproductive rights on March 8,” wrote the leaders of the historic Womxn’s Marches against Trump’s misogyny and bigotry, which made for the largest day of protest in US history.
Let’s take this call to action seriously and build for powerful rallies and actions on March 8, International Women’s Day! Join me and hundreds of activists for a rally at 6pm at Westlake Park, and a march afterwards.
Trump can be defeated. But we need to continue to build our united movement of the 99% independent of corporate politicians. We also must prepare for the mass nonviolent civil disobedience that will be necessary to defend and expand our rights, and defeat the right-wing!
