MEN ARE SIGNING ON IN SUPPORT OF THE
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S STRIKE
On 8 March, women in 46 countries will make their power felt by going on strike to protest against violence, poverty, discrimination, exploitation, war, the destruction of the environment . . . and for a caring society.
There have to be millions of men around the world who recognize that if women partners, sisters, daughters, mothers and friends are not free from violence, none of us is safe.
We will above all show solidarity to this women’s initiative because we need to unite our power with women’s power to defeat the 1% that exploits us all. The international women’s strike (IWS) is part of the growing movement of the 99%. It is an occasion to campaign together with women and build a movement that can finally end the sexism and the racism that have divided and therefore defeated us for too long.
MAKE YOUR SUPPORT VISIBLE BY SIGNING THIS APPEAL
AND SPELLING OUT WHY YOU SUPPORT THE IWS
We also invite men to:
+ join the actions of the IWS if appropriate.
+ give whatever practical support by doing childcare, housework, technical and other work and by providing financial support whenever possible
