Marcha das Mulheres Lisboa #NãoSejasTrump
Start: January 21, 2017• 3:00 PM
" OFFICIAL STATEMENT, National Organizers
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore.We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
The rhetoric of the past election cycle in U.S. has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.
This is an INCLUSIVE march, and EVERYONE who supports women's rights are welcome.
PLEASE SHARE, we need to spread the word everywhere! And there are groups forming for EVERY COUNTRY, so search for your local group as well! "
