San Antonio International Woman's Day March

 

 

SAVE THE DATE: MARCH 5, 2011-SA International Woman’s Day March & Rally

 

Sin Fronteras Mujeres Marcharán

Por Paz, Justicia y Solidaridad!

 

     The 2011 San Antonio International Woman’s Day March and Rally will be held at 10 am on Saturday, March 5th, in downtown San Antonio (route TBA).  The International Woman’s Day March in San Antonio, unlike any other in the US, has historically addressed a wide range of issues, from violence against women and reproductive rights to development over the Edwards Aquifer, from immigration to war and occupation.  By bringing together diverse groups of women, including transgender and genderqueer people, the march helps to build understanding of interconnected issues and their effects on women and girls. 

     The theme for this year’s march, “Sin Fronteras, Mujeres Marcharán Por Paz, Justicia y Solidaridad” (Without Borders, Women Will March For Peace, Justice and Solidarity) draws attention to the issue of migration and US immigration policy, as well as the issue of violence – including domestic violence, police brutality and US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 

     With racist laws similar to Arizona’s SB1070 coming before the Texas legislature in 2011, the march will also build on the passionate organizing done in San Antonio and throughout the US around immigration this year – from demonstrations of solidarity with the people of Arizona, to the UTSA hunger strikers and their community supporters advocating for the DREAM ACT.

     The SA Int’l Woman’s Day March Committee, along with the SA Free Speech Coalition, will also continue to speak out against the repressive 2007 Marching and Parade Ordinance, which imposes high fees for political marches and cultural processions in public streets, limiting the right to freedom of speech and access to public spaces in San Antonio.
