(126th and Lexington Ave.)
There has been a steady stream of protests in response to Trump’s reactionary policies. From a day without immigrants to abortion rights protests, none has mobilized more than the Women’s March on Washington.
The millions of people who mobilized for the Women’s March on Washington signaled the first salvo against Trump’s presidency. It gave our side momentum and was followed up with Counter-protests that hundreds of people who stand for reproductive rights organized against the efforts of pro-birthers who wish to defund Planned Parenthood. January’s millions on the streets reminded us all of the importance of mass mobilizations and the lesson learned from the debate with Planned Parenthood on how to confront the reactionary right wing was that nobody will save us but ourselves.
With strikes and rallies called for March 8th’s International Women’s Day, the question arises if we are seeing a nascent Women’s Rights movement coming back on the scene. As socialists whos aim is to build solidarity in the effort to unite the working class against our exploiters, we have to discuss how we can help build this nascent movement into a powerful force that can blaze a path for other social movements.
Join us as we discuss what we can do to build this movement on Hunter campus, what this movement could grow into and how we as socialists can connect it to a greater critique of our unequal society.
All are welcome!
