West Lafayette, Indiana: Walkout & Speakout #CancelKavanaugh

October 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On October 4 we call on all womxn, and those who believe our stories, to walk out of work, school and housework at 4:00 pm and show the world that since our labour runs the world, when we are denied dignity and safety, we can stop the world from running.

Walkout at 4pm and join us outside the West Lafayette Library (in the Amphitheater) at 4:30p for a speakout against Brett Kavanaugh

If you can, please join us outside or the Class of 1950 (at Purdue) and we will march over to the library together.

Bring your best patriarchy smashing signs!

WEAR RED and/or BLACK.

If you are interested in speaking or volunteering with the organizing team, contact megha.anwer@gmail.com
———————————-
In the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation process to the Supreme Court of the United States, we have listened with distress to the women who have so bravely come forward to make public his assaults against them.

The outrageous response to Dr. Ford and other assault victims who have come forward have reminded us of our own assaults and brutalization and we have found solace and hope in the bravery of the survivors who have spoken up.

This is a critical issue for political equality and full freedom for women at a moment when women, youth, lgbtq+ people, workers both waged and unwaged, all people of color and immigrant communities are saying “Enough is enough!” This is a key issue for all of us in the US, and around the world, who are daily oppressed, humiliated and dismissed, whose suffering and pain often doesn’t matter, all these millions of people who can relate to Dr. Ford’s testimony, and have responded with narratives of solidarity.
