Simultaneous protest actions were carried out by women under Gabriela on March 1 at the beginning of Women’s Month. Their call: Livelihood, Human Rights, Sovereignty, not chacha for foreigners and the few!

That day, Gabriela Youth members, together with other youth groups, marched to Mendiola in Manila to express their opposition to the Marcos regime’s charter change scheme.

A similar action at the University of the Philippines-Los Baños was led by Gabriela Youth-UPLB. According to the group, their action is in solidarity with the planned Purple Day of Action.

Women workers also launched a dance-protest under Women Workers United and Kilusang Mayo Uno for wages, jobs, human rights and an end to violence at work. Gabriela-NCR also launched a protest in Manila on March 5.
