South Africa: Working class unity to stop violence against women

  (Click to enlarge)

Marxist Workers Party and [email protected] members marched through eMbalenhle, Mpumalanga, South Africa, on 23 September calling for working-class unity to stop violence against women.

Our pamphlets called on the municipality to make funding and resources available to eMbalenhle for: free, accessible, secure and high-quality women's shelters for survivors of domestic abuse and rape; free, accessible, and high-quality sexual health and family planning services to allow women genuine choice over if, and when, to have children; free, accessible, secure and high-quality pre-school childcare and elderly care centres to relieve the domestic burden on women and allow women to work if they choose.

We also called on neighbouring communities to unite across South Africa to build a new countrywide socialist civic federation to campaign on all issues effecting working-class communities.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
