International Day of Feminist Struggles – March 8th 2023

Members of the Free Workers’ Union (FAU) and Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in Hamburg together with women who fled from the regime in Iran decided to organize a rally focussing on the international nature of the struggle against patriarchy in the city center of Hamburg.

They adopt the slogan Woman – Life – Freedom, and call on others to display it as well. By doing so you support the feminist movement in Iran and help to globalize the resistance against patriarchy at the same time. The slogan originates from the Kurdish liberation movement and became a rallying cry in the latest feminist movement triggered by the death of Jina Mahsa Amini on September 16th 2022.

The rally in Hamburg will air feminist music and short speeches from different parts of the world.
