Day 75 of Hunger-Strikes at Canada's "Guantanamo Bay" Prison

pirate | CALL FOR EMERGENCY ACTIONS at CANADIAN EMBASSIES
WEDNESDAY, 7 February 2007

Canada's Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Minister seems to think that human rights violations are okay as long as prisoners have access to chocolate sauce. Canada has its own mini-version of Guantanamo bay, a new six-cell prison that was opened in April 2006 specifically for immigrants and refugees who are detained without charge or trial, under secret evidence, indefinitely, under threat of deportation, to places where it has been recognized that they are at risk of torture.

Hands Off Amber Abreu!

Working Class Emancipation | PROTEST! PICKET!
Hands off Amber Abreu! Drop all the charges now!
Free abortions on demand!
Women's liberation through socialist revolution!
Friday, Feb. 23, 8:30 AM
Lawrence District Court
2 Appleton St.
Lawrence, MA

Amber Abreu, a 18-year-old working class Dominican woman, is facing years in prison, for trying to have an abortion. Because she didn't have better medical care, the drug that Abreu took didn't work properly and the baby lived for a short time after it was born. Abreu is not being prosecuted for any crime she committed: she is innocent! She is being targeted because she is a woman, because she is poor, because she is an immigrant, and most of all because the capitalist system depends on exploiting women with low-paid and unpaid labor at work and at home. The state enforces this inequality by ganging up with the church to prevent women from controlling their own bodies, chaining them to their husbands and families. While the feminists look to the Democrats to protect Roe vs. Wade, Amber Abreu's case shows us that for poor and oppressed women, the rights and choices that the Supreme Court supposedly guarantees are as real as the rights of inmates at the Guantanamo Bay torture camp. It will take a revolutionary struggle to eradicate all social inequality to achieve women's liberation: the working class, especially the working women from Lawrence to the maquilladoras and sweatshops of the oppressed countries, have the power to stop the war against women just like we have the power to stop the war against Iraq. The unions should picket this and every court date, and call stop-work meetings to discuss Abreu's case, to prepare for walkouts and massive protests in her defense. more...  1 Comments
