One Billion Rising! "Break the Chains, Unleash the Fury of Women for Revolution" contingent 2-14-14

Join our "Break the Chains, Unleash the Fury of Women for Revolution" contingent that will meet at the Burger King exit of the Civic Center Bart Station at 3:30 this Friday to celebrate the international day of One Billion Rising.  People should wear Revolution: Nothing Less! tshirts.

One Billion Rising for Justice is a very positive international manifestation against the abuse of women. It takes place on February 14 this year. The day forges a sense of world-wide community of joyful resistance to what is one of the deepest and most vicious forms of oppression-the brutalization, degradation, denial of the basic humanity of women.  (See full article here)

You cannot break all the chains, except one. You cannot say you want to be free of exploitation and oppression, except you want to keep the oppression of women by men. You can't say you want to liberate humanity yet keep one half of the people enslaved to the other half. The oppression of women is completely bound up with the division of society into masters and slaves, exploiters and exploited, and the ending of all such conditions is impossible without the complete liberation of women. All this is why women have a tremendous role to play not only in making revolution but in making sure there is all-the-way revolution. The fury of women can and must be fully unleashed as a mighty force for proletarian revolution.
