Civil Rights for Gays?

The gay movement used to claim it wanted the government to leave them alone. Now they want government to actively intervene on behalf of themselves as an oppressed minority, while calling for the expansion of state power over nearly every aspect of our lives. The government has become the gay movement's agent of liberation.

Calling All Women and Men for the Global Women's Strike

The Global Women's Strike was born in 1999, when women in Ireland decided to welcome the new millennium with a national general strike. They asked the International Wages for Housework Campaign to support their call, and called on women all over the world to make the Strike global on March 8, 2000.

The Strike came out of a long grassroots history, starting in 1952 with a little pamphlet called A Womans Place and continuing with Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community, now a classic, in 1972, and Sex, Race and Class in 1973. All three pamphlets made the case that the work women do for wages is a second job, and that the work women do in the home and in the community without wages were invisible but central.

Since 2000, the Strike has been a great success. It has brought together women in over 60 countries, including grassroots organizations with impressive track records, who also demand a world that values all womens work.

We are often told that in order to win we must unite, but we don't hear much about how to do that (except from political parties that want to lead us). We use the Strike as a framework for unity -- among sectors of women, between women and men, within and among countries -- because it is based on each sector accepting and enriching the independent struggle of every other. The Strike is not party political, nor is it separatist. It is ambitious for the movement for change but it stands against personal ambition that undermines mutual accountability.

Meet at the townclock (Pacific and Water) in Santa Cruz on Monday, March 8 at 5:30 PM.
