International Women’s Alliance calls for solidarity for system change

RIO DE JANEIRO, June 18, 2012. The anti-imperialist International Women’s Alliance (IWA) demanded an end to the current system of greed and plunder that continues to destroy the lives of women and their communities during the Women’s March earlier this day at the People’s Summit on the Rio+20.


Speaking at the march was IWA Deputy General Secretary and Rights for Sustainability (R4S) delegate Maria Teresa Ledesma. According to her, “we need to build bridges of solidarity that will deal a mortal blow to this system of greed and plunder. We need that system change now!”


IWA is is a global alliance of anti-imperialist grassroots-based women’s organizations, institutions, alliances, networks and individuals committed to advancing national and social liberation.
