EUROPEAN UPRISING: In Spain, women launch nationwide feminist strike protesting the “alliance of patriarchy and capitalism”
Fight the power, no DICK tatorship!
In Spain, women have launched the first nationwide women’s strike in  [imperial] Spain’s history to mark International Women’s Day. Their motto: “If we stop, the world stops.” 

Organizers say its supporters include the Mayor of Barcelona Ada Colau and the Mayor of Madrid Manuela Carmena. Organizers published a manifesto reading:

“Today we call for a society free of sexist oppression, exploitation, and violence. We call for rebellion and a struggle against the alliance of the patriarchy and capitalism that wants us to be obedient, submissive, and quiet.
