SEASON 15 2018

 

Maiia: There is a quote that we've used for the past 15 years.   A quote that seemed like a validation from the Australian heartlands, from the pragmatic roots of the European diaspora,  in solidarity with Indigenous and other struggles for recognition and respect.  This year however it seems a little less apt.

 

"Middle-class western women have the privilege of serving the revolution, not of directing it. The ideological battles the feminist theorists are engaging are necessary but they are a preliminary to the emergence of female power, which will not flow decorously out from the universities or from the consumerist women's press." - Germaine GREER   

 
The Paradox   NONETHELESS Community led IndyMedia is STILL HERE - and we are still talking. Consensus culture  DID fail to make us shut up. Or tire out from futile endeavour.  IT IS NEVER FUTILE FOR A WOMAN TO WALK IN INTEGRITY.

Hierarchies of archaic authority - can stay in the past, with their terrible pecking orders, tightly upheld and deeply entrenched.  As a young person more punk than professional, I walked away care free, from the fight for permission to WORK to capacity.  Who would have thought the communications industries would have the same degree of difficulty nearly 20 years later.  

 

"Solidarity, love and rage to my rebel warrior sisters and brothers. IWD should be a day of mass disruption to the oppressive power structures, not a celebration of our co-option or mere survival in a broken destructive system." Sam Castro 2018.
