Call for Action this Sunday.
So, as we all know by now, these are the Nasawiya plans for IWD 100.
On Saturday, March 5 and Sunday, March 6, we will be going down to the streets to ask thousands of women what kind of challenges they face in Lebanon and what changes they would like to see. We still need volunteers to help us out so if you’re interested, please email [email protected] right away! We will be live tweeting, blogging, and posting photos and videos so follow @nasawiya and our Facebook page to keep up. The locations we will be at are:
On Tuesday, March 8, between 6 and 8 PM, we will be marching in groups from 4 locations in Beirut to the Ain El Mreisse Corniche to Take Back the Night and reclaim our streets from the harassment women face every day. The 4 starting points are:
Join any of these points on Tuesday at 6pm and walk with us! Or meet us directly at Ain El Mreisseh at 7pm. Check out the event on Facebook for updates and join us. Let us be many to make our voices heard! Bring your friends, your mothers, your sisters, everyone.
On Tuesday, March 8, at 830 PM, right after the sit-in, we will join the Israeli Apartheid Week at Issam Fares Hall in AUB. IAW and Nasawiya will be collaborating on that night to host a talk on Struggle, Resistance and Women by Leila Khaled and Hana Ibrahim. The talk is entitled Why We Struggle: Towards a Just Society.
