Report on the 8th March in Hamburg, Germany




We the Red Women`s Comittee Hamburg mobilized for the International Women`s Day under the slogan „Proletarian Feminism for Communism!“. Part of the mobilization were posters and flyers, as well as an information event, which addressed and explained the proletarian feminism. In addition, in a central square of the University of Hamburg, a spray was placed.

The demonstration took place under adverse conditions, in terms of the time and the route chosen, and also the beautiful weather of the last few days was gone. Nevertheless, involved about 60 people on our block who had a combative, cheerful and militant expression, which to our knowledge, in such a way did not take place in Germany for a long time. So we impressed not just the passersby, but many long-time activists strongly.

Slogans like “Proletarian Feminism for Communism!”, “For a women`s movement with class-conscious position. In communism we achieve our emancipation” and “The only road to socialism is the masses grasping the gun!” clarified the proletarian character of our block. Using the slogan of “Vote out exploitation? It never works! Boycott of the elections of the bourgeoisie!” we sat a first example against this year´s federal elections. On 9 March, we celebrated long and hard with many comrades, activists, and friends this year’s International Women`s Day as a common prelude to another, combative year. We are pleased that we were able to perform our work with a lot of energy and perseverance to be such a success.
