International Women’s Day, March 8

We honor and celebrate all proletarian and oppressed-nationality women.

The domestic worker who rears the spawn of rich white parasites in a foreign land while her own children grow up without her back home.

The garment worker whose hands, eyes and body are worn away by years of labor that is stolen from her.

The mother who travels hours for prison visits to keep her family together.

The survivor of domestic violence, sexual assault and rape.

We reaffirm the struggles of militant women for national and social liberation. We uphold all women who -– like Pirate Jenny in Nina Simone’s rendition of Bertolt Brecht’s classic song — will one day dig graves for their exploiters.
