Vrouwen spelen belangrijke rol bij verzet tegen bezetting

Palestijnse vrouwen hebben altijd een belangrijke rol gespeeld in het verzet tegen de bezetting van Palestina. Van de Balfour verklaring van 1917, de eerste en tweede intifada tot de BDS beweging nu.

The 8 March international women’s strike, an international day of action, planned and organized by women in over 50 different countries, is an unprecedented opportunity for feminists to stand against Islamophobia and Israeli apartheid, while supporting Palestinian self-determination.

The strike call for a “feminism for the 99 percent” includes explicit demands for an “anti-racist, anti-colonial feminism,” the decolonization of Palestinian land and the tearing down of apartheid walls, whether they be along the US-Mexico border or in the occupied West Bank.

Those who have endorsed the call include the political prisoner Rasmea Odeh and Angela Davis, a veteran campaigner for justice and a staunch supporter of the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel.
