International Women’s Day is marked around the world with major protests and gatherings to recognize the spirit of struggle for women’s equality and liberation. In the context of increased attacks on women in the United States, IWD is a day to celebrate and review the victories won by our collective militant organization in the past. It is also a time for us to strengthen ourselves to defend those gains and continue the struggle. The Trump program has set its sights on the basic reproductive and health rights of women as well as the rights of immigrants, oppressed communities and workers in general. 

In the first weeks of Trump’s presidency, Trump and his team of oligarchs issued executive orders that infringed on women’s ability to access reproductive health services all over the world, placed a hiring freeze on public sector jobs, allowed the building of the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines, as well as pushed an anti-immigrant attack that banned legal residents from seven majority Muslim countries. However, Trump’s presidency has also been marked by mass resistance. Millions of people came out into the street for the Women’s marches, and huge numbers mobilized to reject the recent attacks on Planned Parenthood.

The response of solidarity with immigrants under attack was also quick and massive. In this new political period of mass resistance, we have two paths to choose from. We can either continue taking the lead of the Democratic party elite, which will have us going in circles, or we can forge a new independent women's movement where we take a bold and militant stance to defend our communities and demand more. 

We need to get organized and fight back!
