March 8

Rising up! 

Fires are rising inside, outside, and everywhere. Inequality is everywhere. Violence is everywhere. Crises are everywhere. The climate crisis, the housing crisis, the crisis of our public services, the crisis of trust in our systems. Our systems are failing, outdated, and exhausted. We, too, are close to a breaking point. We are angry. Sometimes we are afraid. Yes, our fire could be extinguished, suppressed by our pain and our tears. But no. It is flaming, scorching, spreading. It is feeding off the struggles of some and the indignation of others. It is rising, seething, roaring. It will explode. It is already exploding, this fire that can heal us, that can unite us. This fire that can change everything.

The Collectif 8 mars brings together labour unions and feminist organizations representing nearly 800,000 women in Québec. It works to promote International Women’s Rights Day.
