(TRANS) FEMINISMOS E IGUALDADE DE GÉNERO + Convívio Vegetariano
Sábado 18:30
Sede Nacional do Bloco de Esquerda: Rua da Palma, 268

Quase um mês depois das celebrações do 8 de Março, os estudantes do Bloco de Lisboa propõe um debate sobre "(trans) feminismos e igualdade de género". Um debate sobre as formas, os percursos, os caminhos e o futuro da luta feminista. Um debate sobre como continuar a luta...

Numa altura em que a discussão sobre a dívida e a austeridade tomam conta do debate político, os estudantes do Bloco de Lisboa querem trazer para o centro do debate e do combate político todos os temas e todas as causas que, por causa da crise, não estão na ordem do dia.

Convocamos todas as mulheres, todos os homens, todas as pessoas que não aceitam que os direitos humanos e a igualdade sejam colocados em segundo plano. Convidamos todxs aqueles que não aceitam a usurpação dos direitos que já conquistámos e daqueles que ainda queremos (e vamos) conquistar.

Debate com:

Sérgio Vitorino
Inês Ribeiro
Mi Guerreiro

No fim, há convívio vegetariano.
