Feminist Caravan 2015
Women who are FED UP with racist, sexist, classist, fascist, violent, misogynistic, militaristic and capitalistic colonial patriarchy are making her story!
We want to build solidarity and sustainability of women's struggles and movements across the European continent in order to also make links with women’s struggles globally.
We intend to start from March 8th until October 17th, 2015 - as the World March of Women - to link grassroots feminist movements, struggles and resistances in a Feminist Caravan.
The Caravan will begin in the East of Turkey, Kurdistan, and travel North, West, East and South to end in Portugal.
Our aim is to bring visibility to our various political, economic, cultural and social struggles and resistances as part of the World March of Women's 4th International Action.
From 8 March to 17 October 2015.
During the Action, a high number of feminist events will be organized at the local, national and regional level. In the places where national coordinations of the WMW exist, the activities around the caravan will be organized by them or with their support. We are working in alliances with various women groups, progressist organisations, collectives and networks. The Caravan will make links between these women and these struggles, collecting memories, priorities and strategies, spreading info about Women's resistances. The events will be diverse and multiple, as are our alternatives, and as are women in Europe.
The caravan will consist in several vans/cars, but we plan to complete some streches on bicycles or walking, depending on the number of women participating at each stage, on the local organization and on our energies. We hope to meet a lot of women on the road, a lot of resisting people who will host us for an evening and/or join us for a few stop-overs. Together we will share our realities, our utopias and our strategies of resistance. Our scope and the number of women who will take part in this great experience depend on our resources, and this is what makes your support so crucial!
