Women Say No To The War
Women Say No To The War .
International Womens Day, Saturday March 8.
AOTEA SQUARE 12 NOON; RALLY FOR SPEAKERS BEFORE MARCHING TO THE US CONSULATE.
March 8th is International Women's Day. All around the world on this day women are organising demonstrations against the war and sanctions on Iraq. More than a decade of sanctions have killed an estimated 1.7 million Iraqis; a new invasion will bring more death and devastation. International Women's Day is an occasion to protest against wars of aggression which serve the interests of big corporations but cause untold suffering to ordinary people. It is a day to protest against injustice and inequality. In New Zealand women are still denied equal pay -women's average wages are just 80 per cent of men's. Pay equity is long overdue! Sole parents, most of whom are women, receive inadequate support and the DPB is well below a living income. The benefit cuts of 1991 caused great hardship and need to be reversed, now.
Women and men: take a stand against the war; take a stand for equality and liberation!
