5th International Action – 8 March – 17 October 2020

World March of Women - Marche mondiale des femmes - Marcha Mundial de las Mujeres

2020 is the year in which we celebrate 20 years of our history as an international movement. The 5th International Action of the World March of Women is a call to confront, from the perspective of women’s struggles, the progress of extreme right forces that articulate conservatism and neoliberalism, attacking life and democracy. We invite feminists around the world to participate in this journey, from March 8 to October 17, 2020. We resist to live, we march to transform!

Calendar

8 March
Launch Of the 5th Action – Day of Women’s Struggle

Our International Action starts at the International Day of Women’s Struggle. In each country and territory where we are organized, we will mark the presence of the WMW and launch the action in the streets and in our networks. That 8th March will mark 20 years since the March inaugurated the construction of an international feminist movement, against poverty and violence.

30 March
Palestine Land Day – Self-determination of peoples

We join the struggles of Palestinian, Kurdish, Kashmiri, Saharawi, Basque, Catalan and many other women around the world fighting for existence in their territories. The World March of Women stands for the right to self-determination, against militarization and war. March 30th is in our international calendar as the day to give visibility to the struggle for the self-determination of peoples.

24 April
24 Hours Of Feminist Solidarity Against the Power Of Transnational Corporations

The 24 hours of Feminist Solidarity are focused on the struggle against transnational corporations, in connection with the memory of the day that the Rana Plaza building collapsed, in 2013. We will condemn the advance of corporate power, which makes life precarious, deepens inequalities and destroys nature, while trying to co-opt and weaken the agenda of feminist struggles. Between 12 noon and 1pm in each country, the March will be demonstrating its solidarity around the world,combining popular education and actions of denunciation.

25 – 31 May
Anti-imperialist Days

Convened by the International People’s Assembly and various organizations from around the world, the Anti-Imperialist Days will be a key moment to confront the rise of the extreme right. Women are part of the resistance against imperialism in all its forms in our countries, in our territories and in our bodies. On Anti-Imperialist Day we will strengthen the commitment to build alliances with social movements from the perspective of women’s self-organization. On this date, in each country, we will build joint actions and/or carry out activities called for by the World March of Women.

17 October
International Closing Of the 5th International Action

The closing of the 5th Action will be an international activity taking place in the presence of representatives of the World March of Women from all over the world on the border between Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, in the Americas. Borders and walls are the concrete expression of many threats that we struggle against: imperialism, hatred of immigrants, transnational corporations, attacks on common goods, expulsion of people from their land, privatization, military conflicts. We, on the other hand, affirm the principle of internationalist solidarity between peoples and between women.
