On International Women’s day, a day which has its origins in migrant women’s union organising and resistance, we came together at the Women of the World Festival 2022 to talk about resistance and protest today.
Migrants Organise and members of the Solidarity Knows No Borders community of resistance participated in the annual Women of the World Festival at Southbank Centre.
We kick-started our weekend at the WoW Festival by participating in a panel discussion on protest and resistance where we highlighted the need for long-term organising in our communities.
‘We’re dealing with a system that is violent by design. We need to tear it down and start from scratch.’
We then continued conversations with folks attending the festival at our stall in the WoW Market Place – a vibrant marketplace with stalls from political organisations, charities, small businesses and others. The Solidarity Knows No Borders stall encouraged people to use their radical imagination to outline what a vision for a just future would look like.
Attendees were also able to pick up beautiful postcards and posters designed by Migrants in Culture to plaster around their local areas and learn more on how to get involved with various campaigns and groups such as Abolish Reporting London, Voice of Domestic Workers and Patients Not Passports.
