I think one of the most important struggle on international women's day is taking place in Zimbabwe, which seems to have fallen of the radar a bit.

In Bulawayo a peaceful march of 1000 organised by Women of Zimbabwe Rise was attacked by riot police and 50 demonstrators were injured.

The police commissioner has recently warned that future protests will be met with violence including the use of live ammunition.

All around the world,especially in the so called "the third world",the women,the workers ,the children and the older people are suffering from any kind of shit could happen to the human race caused by the capital ,the imperialistic and economic wars,the racism,the medicine industry and the local wicked prejudices based upon false reading of their own tradition ,the most times ,and with their religions in the place of the 'ethics' governor or many times in the place of the governor himself in their countries...
The international left needs the women strong and revolutionary against any kind of dominance and
their families need them to be the fountain of warmness ,beautifulness
and positive inspiration of their home and of the whole earth...
