This Friday March 8th, on the 110th International Women’s Day, GGJ will join millions of people around the world to celebrate the victories that women, femmes and gender variant people have made in the historical struggle for self determination and resistance against patriarchy.
Grassroots Global Justice (GGJ) and our movement allies have been inspired by the Bolivarian Revolution since the early days of the process, and we remain steadfast in our solidarity. We recognize and condemn the escalating actions of the US government and its right wing allies for what they are: an attempted undemocratic political coup. These actions are a continuation of years of both ideologically and economically motivated intervention in the sovereign democratic processes of the region.
“Sexual violence upholds patriarchy rooted in the colonial drive to possess, the imperial drive to dominate, the capitalist drive to accumulate, and the white supremacist drive to destroy difference.”
From GGJ’s Statement on Gender-Based Violence
Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ) has been truly inspired by the powerful women and survivor led struggle for gender justice and equity that is only growing in numbers and power in this moment. Join this call to action to #CancelKavanaugh.
From the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements to the Women’s March, resistance in the name of women’s rights has been gaining momentum in the US. We at GGJ, are organizing a social media mini-campaign to push the conversation further, and we are asking you to join us! Our goal is to shed light on grassroots feminism and the reality that our organizing struggles, from housing to climate to anti-militarization, are deeply connected to the fight against patriarchy.
