Join GABRIELA Oakland on this Valentines Day for 1 Billion Rising to rise against all forms of violence against women. We understand that beyond interpersonal violence, women experience political, economic, & societal violence within these oppressive and militarized systems of imperialism, fascism, racism, & xenophobia. This year we highlight political & economic violence women face within the prison industrial complex. Internationally, human rights defenders & activists in the Philippines are unjustly incarcerated on trumped up charges. We call to OUST President Duterte who continues his dangerous and misogynistic rhetoric against women and activists. Locally, we recognize that marginalized communities, poor and working class folks, women of color, indigenous people, TGNC folks, and children & families, are most violently affected.
We will write letters, make art, dance, and connect as a form of resistance. 10% of drink sales will go directly to women in prison in the Philippines on trumped up political charges and local organizations supporting incarcerated women along with the letters and art we create.
Rise Against Duterte! Resist Militarization! Unite for Genuine Liberation!
