Only one Month to go Before the VII World March of Women International Meeting!

Definition of the Global Action 2010 is the principal objective of the WMW's upcoming International Meeting, which will take place in Galicia in October.

Under the slogan 'Women on the March until we are All Free!', we are organising our seventh International Meeting in Galicia, northwest Spain, from 14th to 21st October this year, on the 10th anniversary of the very first International Meeting of the movement - held in Montreal from 16th to 18th October 1998. Now, as 10 years ago, the principal objective of the meeting will be the definition and organisation of our next Global Action: in 1998 the first WMW Global Actions of 2000 were planned in the presence of 145 women from 65 countries, while in 2008 we are expecting 150 participants from around 45 countries to contribute to the preparation of our Global Action of 2010...

As well as defining our next Global Action, the VII International Meeting will be an occasion to formally approve our principal political directions, to determine regional action plans, to discuss and monitor our four Action Areas, to advance our political debates and deepen our political knowledge around a number of feminist themes (the commodification of women's lives, bodies and sexuality, the right-wing offensive against women's autonomy, etc), and to hold our General Assembly. We will also be launching our new WMW book entitled, "The World March of Women 1998 - 2000: A Decade of International Feminist Struggle" which examines the March's collective and international identity, retraces steps taken by the movment through its key historical documents, and looks to the future while considering current challenges.

As well as being responsible for the logistics of the meeting (infrastructure, translation equipment, transport, etc), the Galician National Coordination Body is working incredibly hard in the preparation of the food sovereignty weekend - an International Forum, a Food Sovereignty and Responsible Consumption Fair, a demonstration and the creation of a milladoiro - open to other activists and the general public in the territory / region. The objectives of these events are to advance our discourse, promote a debate and develop a feminist position in relation to the theme of food sovereignty, while also denouncing the control of the food prodution chain by transnational corporations and showing that local, agroecological agriculture has the capacity to feed us all. In Galicia we want to go further than solidarity and discourse, challenging ourselves to change our daily practices with a view to strengthening alternatives to the free market.

We look forward to seeing you in October, when we will unite under the WMW banner, share experiences, strengthen ourselves as activists, and remind the world of our struggles: "Change the lives of women to change the lives of women!"
