This shall be the call of the International Migrants’ Alliance (IMA) as we join the many working women around the world in commemorating the International Working Women’s Day this March 8, 2013.
We remember and continue to be inspired by the defiance of the women workers who fought for class and gender liberation when they struggled collectively against low wages, long working hours and oppressive working condition in the factories they worked in. Their defiance and struggle was what started and marked the International Working Women’s Day and it is what we aim to continue unto this day.

GABRIELA Alliance of Filipino Women condemns the murder of Barug Katawhan leader and typhoon Pablo survivor Christina Morales Jose by an unidentified motorcycle-riding assassin in Baganga, Davao Oriental around 6:00 PM on Monday, the 4th day of Women’s Month.
"We condemn the persistence of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines which claimed Jose as latest victim. The circumstances surrounding her murder is suggestive of the ways gunmen kill citizens who have been branded as enemies of the state for criticizing corrupt, unjust and inhumane government programs and policies.

“Let life be dead, but death must not be allowed to live” - Marx
Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) condemns the Indian government in the strongest possible terms for hanging Mohammad Afzal Guru at Tihar Jail this morning in a dastardly manner.
The process of his arrest, trial, his sentencing by the lower court and the upholding of the death sentence by the Supreme Court, the rejection of his petition to the president, denial of his right to a judicial review of this rejection, and finally his secret hanging – all point towards the farcical nature of Indian judiciary and the complicity of the entire present political system in persecuting political dissidents.
