International Women's Day Greetings From Dominican Republic
Sending our message of struggle for International Women's Day. Our greetings to Radical Women for your spirit of struggle against the exploitation, oppression and discrimination faced by the world's women.
Murry Weiss was right when he pointed out that the revolution without women is an absolute outrage, deepening the need for the program of revolutionary Marxists to confront sexism and all forms of sexual discrimination. And not only in program, but also in regard to the policy and organizational structure of a revolutionary group.
Globally, women play an important revolutionary role. You need only look at the images of the struggles that are being carried out by the peoples of the Middle East and North of Africa against the tyrannies and presence of imperialists.
In our country, teachers are 85% of the educational system and are the vanguard of the current struggle for improvements in pay and healthcare, and in Puerto Rico the youth are the ultimate expression of the fighting spirit against the education policy set against student needs by the colonial government of Fortuño. In the resistance of the workers and people of Wisconsin it is evident that women are in the forefront.
