The right to resist: a feminist manifesto

A coalition of Ukrainian feminists has published this common statement of priorities. These include armed and unarmed resistance, and a reconstruction of Ukraine centred on equitable social reproduction, labour rights, equality and democracy. This initiative brings Ukrainian feminists together. It also creates a strong pole of international solidarity, that rejects some western attempts to hijack 'feminism' to promote Ukrainian surrender in the interest of 'peace' for Russia and 'peace' in the richest countries of Europe.

We recommend this recent video and transcript of an interview with Oksana Dutchak of Commons magazine, as well as this solidarity statement from the Russian Feminist Anti-War Resistance (FAS) Telegram Channel.

You can read the manifesto in various languages here, and sign it here. So far 744 people and 64 organizations have signed (1st August 2022) The list of supporters is published on Спільне/Commons website in English, Ukrainian and Russian.
