Mundo Obrero Editorial: Vidas trans, vidas revolucionarias

first_img¡Que viva el Día de la Visibilidad Trans! Este se llevó a cabo el 31 de marzo. ¿Tal vez no supiste qué sucedió?No es un día que sea muy “visible” en los medios de comunicación de las grandes empresas.Porque este día está organizado por y para las personas trans que hablan por sí mismas y  propias vidas, contando al mundo cómo se definen y celebrando las complejas realidades de las vidas trans.Los medios corporativos han presentado obsesivamente las vidas de personas trans como un circo para barridos de la semana o personas trans narradas como balones políticos que se patean de un lado a otro durante los ataques de derecha.En cambio, son las personas trans las que han insistido en esta verdad: han sido parte de la trama de la existencia humana desde el principio de nuestra especie.Como el compañerx trans Gery Armsby comentó en Facebook en el Día de la Visibilidad Trans: “A lo largo de la historia, las sociedades humanas han “asignado “papeles socioeconómicos a personas de muchas maneras que hoy entendemos como ‘género’”. Como todas las sociedades están sujetas a constantes internas y externas fuerzas de cambio, es razonable comprender que los roles de género no son ahora ni nunca han sido estáticos, y mucho menos binarios. [los roles de género] ciertamente tienen poco o nada que ver con la biología humana real. Esto no es nada nuevo”.De hecho, en las sociedades pre clase matrilineales, antes del surgimiento del patriarcado de clases, era la norma de la sociedad tener una complejidad de sexo y género que podría llamarse ahora “trans”. Las diferentes variedades, nombres, costumbres e historias de esta complejidad de género continúan hoy en día a través de pueblos, culturas y naciones indígenas aún existentes.Pero, como anotó Armsby en sus comentarios de Facebook, dentro de los Estados Unidos y en otros lugares que el patriarcado ha pisoteado, la lucha por esa complejidad “para muchas personas trans, especialmente mujeres trans de color, equivale a una lucha de vida o muerte por los pronombres correctos, por baños y para cualquier recurso y medida [que] las personas trans, no binarias y de dos espíritus creen que vale la pena luchar”.Las “fuerzas externas” que trabajan en los Estados Unidos han producido conceptos opresivos y estrechos de “hombre” y “mujer” como objetivos públicos: para crear pobladores coloniales, soldados para el imperialismo y trabajadores maleables.No fue casual que, a principios del siglo XX, cuando EE.UU. comenzó a invadir y ocupar naciones más allá de sus fronteras continentales, el presidente Teddy Roosevelt hizo una campaña para “endurecer” a los jóvenes y convertirlos en “hombres”. Como señala la historiadora Sarah Watts, quería que los hombres en los Estados Unidos imperialistas fueran “los verdaderos herederos de la tradición de vaqueros de la virilidad blanca, agresiva, armada y nacionalista”. (tinyurl.com/y4g3rxo7)Las vidas trans nos dan a todos la visión y la esperanza de un mundo que rechaza las ideas rígidas, dominantes y dañinas sobre el hombre y la mujer, lo masculino y lo femenino. Como dijera una vez la guerrera trans, historiadora y activista Leslie Feinberg:”Las personas de todos los sexos tienen el derecho de explorar la feminidad, la masculinidad y las infinitas variaciones entre ellos, sin críticas ni ridiculización”.Feinberg también sabía que un futuro socialista ofrecía la única posibilidad de un mundo donde las personas trans y todas las personas pudieran vivir plenamente en su propia complejidad de sexo y género, única y hermosa. Feinberg, de Workers World Party/ Partido Mundo Obrero, murió en el 2014 con estas últimas palabras: “Recuérdame como comunista revolucionario”.En uno de los primeros folletos, “La liberación de personas transgénero: un movimiento cuyo tiempo ha llegado”, Feinberg escribió: “Al igual que el racismo y todas las formas de prejuicio, el fanatismo contra las personas transgénero es un carcinógeno mortal. [Como trabajadores] nos enfrentamos entre nosotros para evitar que nos veamos como aliados. Se pueden forjar auténticos lazos de solidaridad entre personas que respetan las diferencias entre sí y están dispuestas a luchar juntas contra su enemigo. Somos la clase que hace el trabajo del mundo y podemos revolucionarlo. Podemos ganar la verdadera liberación”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

General strike: Greek workers respond to government’s attacks

first_imgIn big cities like Athens and Thessaloníki, and smaller ones like Larissa and Patras, workers in Greece struck and marched by the thousands Nov. 26 to defend workers’ wages and benefits. Their actions defied government restrictions, made under the pretext of responding to COVID-19, which limit gatherings of more than three people.Greek demonstrators, maintaining social distance, commemorate the 1973 Greek student revolt against the former military dictatorship.The Greek government has introduced bills into parliament, at the behest of big business, which require workers to accept a 10-hour work day while only getting paid for 8 hours, along with substantially lower wages and Sunday work. Social security will be privatized, along with public facilities such as transportation systems.A decade of austerity imposed by the IMF and the big European and U.S. banks has shrunk Greece’s economy by at least 25%. The impact of COVID-19 has produced a 10.5% drop in its GDP in 2020. The Greek capitalists need every euro they can extort from Greek workers.Dozens of union federations, labor centers and trade unions across the country went on strike, responding to the call from the All Workers Militant Front (PAME). Among them are federations of hospital doctors and other medical workers, construction workers, workers in the pharmaceutical industry, and the labor centers of Athens, Piraeus, Patras and dozens of other cities.The unions representing marine workers — particularly important in a country with so many islands — held a 24-hour nationwide strike in all ship categories, while the workers of the Athens urban transport also participated in the strike.PAME has demanded benefits — without terms and conditions — for all unemployed workers, revoking all illegal layoffs during this COVID-19 period and ending any further job furloughs. PAME and the unions supporting its call also demand no cuts in employment rights and a moratorium on bank payments, along with free electricity, gas, water and communication services for workers in quarantine.Health workers’ demandsProtesting health workers have demanded more hospital beds, including intensive care units, additional diagnostics and laboratory centers, as well as the mass recruitment of doctors of all specialties and nursing staff. A key demand is that the government ensure sufficient infrastructure and personal protective equipment.Greece held infections low during the first COVID-19 wave in Europe, with just hundreds of cases and dozens of deaths. However, starting at the end of October, cases and deaths began to spike. As of Nov. 29, Greece, whose population is just over 10 million, has 104,722 cases and 2,321 deaths, according to the Worldometer website.Videos and pictures, as posted on the PAME website and Flickr albums, show that the Nov. 26 protests complied with proper COVID-19 precautions. Protesters were masked and, except those carrying banners, observed proper distances.PAME is calling on all workers to react to the government and employer attack, to leave no one out of this struggle, to dismiss all fear, intimidation and pessimism and let the strike message reach everywhere, every workplace! (tinyurl.com/yylcnkoj)In November before the general strike, a struggle broke out around commemorating the 1973 occupation of Athens Polytechnic University. At that time,  a coalition of students and workers was protesting the military dictatorship led by army colonels, who had acted in a U.S.-NATO plot to seize power in April 1967.The military used tanks then to crush the university occupation, which had gained a tremendous amount of popular support. The reaction to this massacre led to the fall of the Colonels’ dictatorship in 1974.The commemoration of the Polytechnic occupation has drawn thousands of supporters in past years, but the current right-wing government tried to ban the traditional march from the Polytechnic to the U.S. embassy. A coalition of the social-democratic Syriza, which led the government from 2015 until July last year, the Greek Communist Party (KKE) and Mera25, founded by former finance minister Yannis Varoufakis, put up such a storm of protest that even the conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotaki had to lay a wreath at the Polytechnic.Greek workers continue to protest for their rights and lives despite the reactionary regime and the pandemic.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Herald powerhouse ready to take on Daily Cardinal

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald file photoHatfields and McCoys, Bloods and Crips, Rosie O’Donnell and The Donald (really all men for that matter) — all are iconic rivalries part of the American fabric.The mere mention of one in the presence of the other is sure to incite aggression and virulent anger. But while they historically have dominated feud-related headlines, another tiff has been brewing for nearly 40 years right here in Madison.The Badger Herald and The Daily Cardinal — respectively the titans and Tinkerbells of typeset on this campus — go at it every day in print. Tomorrow in Vilas Park, the two sides will meet on the gridiron for their annual game.“My friends, nothing against anyone on their side, but have you ever walked past that wing of Vilas Hall? Heavens, it smells,” BH Editor in Chief Tom Schalmo said. “No wonder why they put out such a stinky publication.”But on this day, newsprint takes a momentary back seat.The Herald could be slightly shorthanded. Last year’s game MVP, Nick Penzenstadler, has been limited in practice with what Herald Belichick-disciple Schalmo cryptically described as an “upper body situation.” Penzenstadler, who caught the game-winning point after touchdown as time expired last year, is officially listed as doubtful. The Herald is otherwise fairly healthy, but Associate Sports Editor Jonah Braun (hangover), City Editor Becky Vevea (mud wrestler’s rash) and News Content Editor Beth Mueller (carrot addiction) are all probable. Business Manager Justin Dahnert (paper cut) will play.Just a year ago, the Herald stunned the Cardinal with a last-minute touchdown drive to steal a come-from-behind win in a thrilling 35-34 shootout. Orchestrating the drive was then-Sports Editor Ben Voelkel, who will be back behind center for a second game.Voelkel, now a sports columnist, is excited for the challenge.“We’ve got a good team; we’re just hoping to go 1-0 and give this campus some winning Badgers,” Voelkel said.Voelkel will have plenty of weapons to throw to, highlighted by Sports Content Editor Derek Zetlin and Deputy Design Director Lee Dix.On defense for the BH, Ken “Papa Bear” Harris will pressure the quarterback into poor throws, as the ball flies into the waiting arms of Herald defensive backs.“We’ve just got more skills, plain and simple,” a bare, hairy-chested Harris said between drags of his Marlboro and pulls of Jack. “We’re too much man for them to handle. The Dirty Bird doesn’t stand a chance.”Multiple attempts to reach Daily Cardinal Editor in Chief Alex Morrell for comment this week went unanswered. Apparently he was having just as hard a time as his readers trying to decipher sports editor Crystal Crowns’ latest attempt at a column.Cardinal Page Two columnist Ashley Spencer was more than happy to offer her two cents on the game.“Like, OMG. Did I tell you I lost my big toe? For reals! So my friends and I, there’s this boy, and he is suuuuuuuper cuute! Like if Seth Cohen and the Bachelor had a boy, this guy would be cuter than that! LOL, that’s not actually possible.“What’s football? Oh, yeah, the guys with the tight pants and cute butts!”If Spencer’s focused intensity is any sign, the Herald should have no problem winning its second game in a row.last_img read more
