(en) Brazilian Anarchist Coordination - CAB: FOR THE MEMORY OF TEREZA DE BENGUELA! -- FOR THE STRUGGLE OF RESISTANCE OF BLACK LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN! (pt) [traduzione automatica]

Date Wed, 31 Jul 2019 07:52:57 +0300


In honor of Tereza de Benguela, during the First Meeting of Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women, 25 July was established as the Black Women's Day of Latin America and the Caribbean. ---- Tereza was a black warrior woman who led the production of weapons, fabrics and harvest of the Quilombo of Quariterê, a black and indigenous community in Mato Grosso, that resisted slavery for two decades in the eighteenth century. ---- But just like International Women's Day, this day is not to be celebrated. It is a date to remember and strengthen the resistance struggle of black women; those who are historically the greatest victims of state-promoted class, gender and race domination.
The violence on their bodies, their identity and their living conditions is not part of a past, but evidence of our present. In Brazil, the country that has the highest rate of femicide in Latin America - the rates grow every day. Here, black women are the segment of the population where the largest number of femicides are concentrated, as well as those who suffer most from domestic and obstetric violence, maternal mortality and the criminalization of abortion.

Therefore, the struggle for a libertarian socialist society is the struggle for the defense of these women's lives, and the struggle against racism, machismo, class and state violence.

Long live the empowerment, visibility and organization of black Latin American women!
