For Immediate Release
INVEST IN CARING NOT KILLING!
GLOBAL WOMEN’S STRIKE AGAINST OIL WARS AND ALL WARS
Women in Ireland and all round the world demand that our voices are heard. We are protesting that our Shannon Airport be given over to US planes for refuelling on their way to slaughter FOR OIL. The Global Women’s Strike is joining the grassroots protest at Shannon to say: NOT IN WOMEN’S NAME! Most of those murdered by the likes of these warplanes are women and children. No one can say they didn't know this fact.
In more than 60 countries round the world, the GLOBAL WOMEN’S STRIKE is demanding: INVEST IN CARING NOT KILLING!
$900 + billion dollars a year now being lavished on global military budgets, with its glorification of killing, must end.
That is why all over the globe, from the US to Uganda, from Argentina to the UK, from India to Spain, women say: INVEST IN CARING NOT KILLING!
Women the carers have been central to every anti-war movement. For every bomb dropped, it is us women who will have to:
Keep entire communities going in the face of military occupation, rape, other sexual violence and other repression, which denies us food, water and medical attention.
Maggie Ronayne, point of reference in Galway for the Wages for Housework Campaign, the international co-ordinators of the Global Women’s Strike, said, ‘As we in Ireland defend the children’s allowance, health and education services from cutbacks, we are with our sisters in the US, defending welfare as our right from billions in cuts to the poorest mothers – money Bush wants to pour into slaughter in Iraq’. Essential public services such as water and other utilities, transport, health care and housing are privatised everywhere, but military budgets are protected and increased. Yet $80 billion would provide the essentials of life for everyone on the planet. ‘We don't want money spent on military hardware, murderous technology or to have our children trained to kill in any army, including any European army. We want an end to all wars, to military occupation, to racism and poverty beginning with women, the poorer sex’, she added.
