“Firstly I would like to send greetings to all women who hold the banner of struggle against capitalism and imperialism and to say to them that our path is very long and hard and necessitates well thought out strategies.

We shouldn’t forget that the capitalist system oppresses and exploits women and takes away their human dignity. Therefore we must adhere to our values of humanity and progressive politics as well as remaining united and strong in the revolutionary left as the best means to achieve our ends.

This is the only path to attain freedom, equality and social justice for us, our families and our children.”

-Shireen Said of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) to the women of the world on International Women’s Day.
