Feminism is alive and well, my friends. And I’ve got 95 photos from across the planet to prove it.

(Click on the photos to find the source articles about the protests and movements pictured!)

Including an image of a protest or images from a specific region doesn’t indicate any sort of endorsement of that region or movement’s politics — this is just about showcasing that the fight for women’s rights and gender equality is raging on around the world.

These aren’t just ‘Crimes’…It’s Patriarchy

5 deaths from Macho Violence in Spain in a Single Day

These are not ordinary events or isolated facts, it is a system that perpetuates domination over women. It’s patriarchy.no attcks without reply.bPatriarchy is…. giving the boys balls and dolls to us girls to educate us to be submissive and silent, to teach that there are things for women and men.. it’s just to look at the body of a woman when she doesn’t want it, then to treat you as exaggerated or hysterical, to harass verbally, to insist on violence and ultimately death. This and much more is all patriarchy. That men have more leisure time than women, that men don’t help at home, as we are delegated to the care of children and elderly, that women are paid less for doing the same job, that we are afraid to walk down the street, having been harassed since childhood … Continue reading These aren’t just ‘Crimes’…It’s Patriarchy

The Amazing Story of a Cryptocurrency that could save Greece (and Maybe the World)

use faircoin

The activist Enric Duran, known as ‘Robin Banks’, and collective has launched FairCoin     by Laia Gordi  
Enric Duran, also known as Robin Banks, met us in an encrypted chat room and told us that he still lives in hiding.“To defend myself I had to hack the monetary system, isn’t that strange?” he told me.
“The first years of hiding in the underground I was using Bitcoin for security reasons to manage some aspects of my situation”, explained Duran, who says the more he learnt, the more he realized the potential of ‘disruptive technology‘.
From then on  the idea a cryptocurrencies was born, which offers to replace the dependence on the states and the banks with the value of ‘integral revolution’ (revolución integral). Continue reading The Amazing Story of a Cryptocurrency that could save Greece (and Maybe the World)

Why 100’s of Men Want to Rape and Kill Coralie Alison

Australian Feminist ‘Hits Wrong Note’

Coralie

CORALIE ALISON   **Trigger Warning**   *Sexual Assault Themes*

Rape threats are to social media as catcalling is to walking down the street for women–commonplace. If I had a dollar for every time a man has threatened me on Twitter, I would have my mortgage payment every month.

It’s the ugly side of social media–the very thing that allows women to connect with other women all over the world, especially on feminist issues, also allows men from all over the world to harass us. Yes, you can protect your account on Twitter, but that pretty much defeats the purpose of getting your message out to a wider audience.

2 new Anarchist Social Centres Occupied: Rubí and Transformadors

Confront Capitalist Chaos with Anarchist Order
Confront Capitalist Chaos with Anarchist Order

In parts of Spain it’s a good moment for social occupations . In Barcelona, Madrid and other cities local council elections have suddenly swept street revolutionaries into power, with a mandate to slow down mass evictions by the predator banks, etc.

Strange things can happen. For example in her 1st days in power Barcelona’s mayoress Ada Colau turned up at a family eviction herself and just ordered the riot police to go home.  We translate here the  press release of a more traditional anarchist  takeover in a traditionally communist workers town of 70,000 in Catalonia…… Continue reading 2 new Anarchist Social Centres Occupied: Rubí and Transformadors
