great walk against anti women laws in Iran's
Islamic Republic on March 8th 2006 !
For over 25 years one of the most anti women governments of the world has ruled
Iran . A government whose fundamental existence is based upon oppressive
laws securing domination of women.
For over 25 years Iranian women have struggled and resisted
against poverty and injustice in the political, cultural and economical
aspects of life . Women
have endured being lashed, stoned to death , jailed, tortured a nd executed,
but they have not surrendered to the medieval laws
of Iran 's Islamic Republic.
March 8 th 2006 is a time to show, once more our solidarity
with the relentless struggles of Iranian women. We should make this day, a day for
expressing exciting and magnificent exhibitions of solidarity against the anti- woman system of Iran 's Islamic Republic.
We, the women of the (Campaign

of all Legislation confirming inequality and imposing Islamic
punishment on Iranian Women),
will observe International women's day, by
organising a great walk from Germany to Holland . (The
details of this walk which will be concluded

and progressive and revolutionary forces, who want equality between men and women in every
aspects of life, a place

voice of the just struggles of Iranian women. We want this voice to
be heard throughout the world, and we want to mobilise the
International women's movement

in every corner of this world.
Let us play
our role in burying this medieval
regime, by joining in solidarity with the struggles of Iranian people.
Let us pay
our respect to the needs and
demands of Iranian women whose struggles
have become the shining example of these struggles. No doubt the degree of progress
and freedom in any society is measured by the rights
and liberty of women in that society.
