International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is a day of global action set on November 25th, and is based on the date in 1960 when the three Mirabel sisters, political activists, resisting the fascist Trujillo regime, were assassinated by the state.
Today, thousands take to the streets on this day to resist the ongoing violence that all women—trans and cis, and particularly working class women under colonialism, face at the hands of US imperialism, colonialism, semi-feudalism, racism and patriarchy. In some areas it has been renamed as “International Day Against Gender Violence” to also recognize the violence that nonbinary people and trans men also face.
This Saturday, come join Gabriela New York, @nyboricuaresistance, @bayan_usa, @prolibertad, A Call to Action on Puerto Rico, and other groups as we commemorate those lost this year to gender violence and continue to build solidarity to fight against the root causes of violence against women and other genders.
