Make a lot of noise !!! Educate our children that women are half of the world population and workforce, deserve respect and equal rights including right to make personal choices.

I am impressed by the following words because men including in the professions listed below need to be alert and informed.

“also calls for a new kind of education that excludes “stereotypes about toxic-romantic love,” and demands “feminist training” for judges, police officers and social workers.”

The is wonderful a true gathering of force and demands. It’s the question everyone on Earth faces. It’s my favorite line from Hamlet too: “To be or not to be, that is the question.”
it sounds even better in Spanish:" Existir o no existir, esta es la question" : )

True feminists know that class is a central part of the problem. Men, to a large extent though not exclusively, maintain the class system.

In the former Soviet Union nations, Women’s Day is an important national holiday with many schools and businesses closed. Of course, the U.S. corporate media will never report that fact.

IF WE WANT TO ABOLISH CAPITALISM …

"Our objective is to project and coordinate internationally the union sections to spread the struggle across the world; if we want to abolish capitalism, we need to spread our fights worldwide," the spokesperson said.

AND …

And, as Kelly pointed out, unlike some of the feminist organizers, CNT also called on men to participate "as a tool to paralyze the system."

A repetitive line from SPOTLIGHT movie used by “Robby” and the reporters of the Boston
Globe’s Spotlight Investigative team … "YOU WANT TO BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THIS…"

AND …

"We believe that a revolution is happening, that feminism goes beyond the women’s struggle," the spokesperson said. "It is a class struggle that wants to support racialized women and transgender [people], women around the world, and to put an end to patriarchy and the precariousness of all class workers."

As always … the time is NOW.

In order for Elites and Patriarchy to survive, “Christianity” must survive.

“Christianity” underpins Elite-Patriarchy as the “god says so” …

Christianity also invented Capitalism when Feudalism was no longer sufficient to run
the Papal States.

You can also thank them for the nazis, the dark ages, the demonization of knowledge for 500+ years, private property extending into the natural world and the “creation” of America as well as similar genocidal colonial projects all around the world.
The amount of damage that sick death cult has inflicted on humanity and the planet is incalculable.

Tengri –

You can also thank them for the nazis, the dark ages, the demonization of knowledge for 500+ years, private property extending into the natural world and the “creation” of America as well as similar genocidal colonial projects all around the world.
The amount of damage that sick death cult has inflicted on humanity and the planet is incalculable.

One of the most often used tools in the Elite toolbox is “Christianity” –
And Pope Pius XIII “catapulted” Hitler/Nazis to power and Vatican has been involved in
many ways in corruption of US government and undermining it.

Our Founders also found no difficulty in NOT creating a democracy; rather they created
an Elite-Patriarchy … gave them immense influence and control over our people’s government,
the nation’s wealth and natural resources. In other words, they PRIVATIZED the Commonwealth
immediately. Saved and supported system of Slavery for Elites – which guaranteed the Civil War.
That war further benefitted them by splitting the nation into two camps of hatred which continue to
echo today. Genocide against native people here to steal their land conducted under Papal Edicts
to “Enslave or Kill” the native people they labeled “pagans … only fit to be fed to the dogs.”
That Genocide was carried out under the same precedent-setting violence and tortures used by
the Vatican during the Crusades, Inquisitions and Burnings at the take which soaked the soil of
Europe in blood for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Still, they didn’t gain access to all that they want down to the last penny –
and that takes 1000% control of our government and they are quite close to having that
dream come true now. When that takeover is complete, Capitalism/Business will no
longer be necessary for Elites.

Yes, something we should refer to more often … capitalist oppression – !!

And how often do any of our free press talk about “patriarchy”?

and its violence?
