New Age Politics
BC Women's Party Gaining Traction
Females of all ages, sizes, races and sexual orientation everywhere meet Sept 14
Submitted by Betty Krawczyk, Cumberland
en, it isn’t that we don’t love you, but we want a women’s only space to organize and solidify our thoughts around what we envision for a women’s party. We believe the old male dominated thinking of organizing around hierarchies and “winner take all” is killing our planet. And us along with it, including our children.
We believe that women are capable of halting this mad race to the cliff, but
in order to do this, we must first come together and agree on how to push
many of the male imposed structures of society off the cliff first.
We must confront a banking system that is privately held, corrupt, and leading us all to the poor house. We need to confront Prime Minister Harper who believes that military acquisitions are a priority instead of the health and education of children, (or for that matter, even the repair of bridges and tunnels in Quebec.) We must devise means to confront a Prime Minister who believes that corporate enrichment is the god to be worshiped (while he is personally waiting for the Rapture) and the environment be dammed (oil sands and Asbestos.)
We must also confront religious structures, Christianity, Judaism and Islam,
as well as all patriarchal religions that deem women to be inferior because
their gods say so. And they all do. More prisons? Prisons only work for
corporations. We believe that if we take care of our people there will be
no, or few, prisons.
As a Women’s Party we will want to look closely at how our court systems work. We want to study and refute how the Supreme Court of Canada supports environmental degradation by upholding the bogus claims of logging and mining industries over the rights of citizens, including First Nations, to lead healthy lives.
And we most certainly will be looking at and considering action against the
right of private corporations to hold patents on the essence of life itself;
the private patents on plants, fish, and other animals, described as
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s.) We believe that as long as women are
absent in the most important decision making bodies in the world we will
have war, disease, both physical and mental, along with premature death
accompanied by environmental destruction
Sisters, if any of the above interests you, and you would like to be involved, please notify Gail through the email (here) to indicate that you wish to join us on Sept.14th in Vancouver and receive the street address.
One caveat…if you are a news reporter, please don’t attend as a reporter. Come as a woman who understands the perils we are all facing and the need to confront old ways, old means, old beliefs, and to help devise new ways and means of living lives of equality, of health, nourishment, and peace for all. Mark your calendars. See you there.
“Action is the mother of hope.”
