Direct Action Seminar March 27, 2010

Everywhere women are bearing the brunt of the global economic crash
and increasing social inequality - wars & occupations, lost jobs, more
discrimination, and an unrelenting cultural tide aimed at reversing
the gains of the feminist movement.

But women are not simply on the frontline of government and corporate
attacks, they are also on the frontline of resistance - leading major
struggles against war, occupations, poverty and discrimination.
This seminar will bring together feminist activists to discuss these
experiences of resistance and consider ways of reinvigorating the
struggle for women's liberation.

The keynote speakers will introduce the discussion by drawing on their
specific experiences with various resistance struggles including
Palestine, Latin America and Australia.

Speakers Include:
Kim Bullimore, recently returned from working in the Occupied West
Bank as a human rights volunteer, Direct Action journalist.

Lourdes Garcia, Centre for Latin America Studies & Solidarity, Mexican
activist recently returned from Mexico.

Zely Ariane, National Network for Womens' Liberation (JNPM) in
Indonesia & Committee of the Politics of the PoorPeoples Democratic
Party (KPRM-PRD)
