We Want Bread, and Roses Too

Bring In Take Out Living Archive Ljubljana, 7. – 10. March 2012 in the framework of the International Feminist and Queer Festival Red Dawns

“Z gverilsko akcijo na Mednarodni dan žena, 8.marca smo se pridružile protestnikom gibanja 150 ob blokadi bank in z reaktualizacijo zahtev Antifašistične fronte žensk (AFŽ) iz leta 1942 opozorile na aktualnost teh zahtev in nujnost odpora proti socialni represiji in ekonomskemu izkoriščanju, ki še posebej ogroža ženske. Akcijo smo naslovile po sloganu “Hočemo kruh, pa tudi vrtnice!”, ki so ga leta 1912 skovale protestnice v okviru protestov tekstilnih delavk v Lawrencu, Massachusetts, ZDA.

“With the guerrilla action on the International Women’s Day we were calling for resistance movements against all forms of social repression and economic exploitation by remembering the famous slogan of the textile women workers’ strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts on 8th of March, 1912: We want bread, and roses too. We joined the Movement 150 which on that day blocked some of the banks in the Ljubljana centre.”
