Show up in Stamford. Solidarity to the workers of the Hilton and workers throughout the world who will on that day be fighting for workingwomen.

What: Join Connecticut members of the International Women’s Strike at “Feminists Stand with the Hilton Hotel Workers!” We will make a show of support for the hotel workers and especially the housekeepers who helped to lead a successful union recognition drive. Now they are struggling for a decent contract with higher wages, better heath care, and pensions.

When: Thursday, March 8, 2:30-5:00 p.m.

Where: 1 First Stamford Place, Stamford, CT 06902. We will have a presence with signs outside the front door while a delegation visits the hotel management to explain that the women’s movement is supporting the workers. From 3:00 to 5:00 pm there is a shift change and female hotel workers will join us outside.

Can you join us to say Feminists Stand with the Hilton Hotel Workers. If so, please

On International Women's Day, there were numerous demonstrations in Berlin, including: a union demonstration, an anti-imperialist demonstration, and a supposedly "leftist" demonstration in solidarity with Israel. As you would expect, police only attacked one of the three.

All Eyes on Columbia: We Must Build a National Campaign to Defend the Right to Protest for Palestine

After suspending and evicting students and ordering the repression of a student occupation, Columbia University has become the ground zero for attacks against the pro-Palestine movement.
