We are sisters. We are resisting.
We are sista resista, a revolutionary, anti-racist, anti-imperialist feminist diode conducting the current in only one direction — against the tide of oppression. In our rejection of patriarchal gender roles for women including submission and servitude, we are not divorced from popular culture, but engaged in a critical analysis of it.
We resist the ideologically motivated, neo-liberal cuts being forced upon the poorest and most vulnerable. We resist racism, white supremacy and imperialism. We resist the commodification of education. We resist neo-liberalism and capitalism. We resist environmental destruction. We resist war and systematic violence. We resist patriarchal, sexist, misogynistic behaviour and attitudes and the white male power structure. We also resist sexist domination and abuse from men in so-called “activist” circles and our personal lives. We resist all forms of oppression and injustice, wherever they arise, all of the time.
In this blog we post what we have learned and what we wish to share — reflections, directions, observations, and how-to guides to triumphant survival as a revolutionary sista in a neo-liberal, imperialist, patriarchal, global war machine a.k.a. a man’s world. We do this because we can envision a world in which all of earth’s inhabitants, women, men, trans, intersex and gender non-specific people of all colours, sexual orientations, religions, abilities and creeds, all humans and all other species, are free to live in non-hierarchical harmony with each other.
Can’t nobody hold us down.
Let’s get free.
