🔮

This is a chain letter. But not the usual kind. This is a chain letter to pass the word along.

A number of us are taking part three times a day in a collective strike, a moments time-out from our daily routines. At each of these moments we remind ourselves that other womxn are doing the same.

We stop, and think about the new world we are trying to bring into being — a future of peace and justice where no one, and nothing in nature, is treated as “the other”; a world in which we no longer live in fear for our lives — and the life of the earth itself.

We ask ourselves what changes are most needed, to bring such a world into being; and what actions we can take to hasten these changes.

We take these brief times-out: upon waking, at 11 A.M., and at sunset. We hope that many others, receiving this letter, will want to join us.

We wake at different times, so our pauses upon waking will be varied. At 11 A.M., our stopping becomes a momentary strike. We can make our pauses as short as an instant, or make them as long and as noticeable as we want or dare. At sunset we take our brief action again.

As the sun sets at different times around the globe (and clocks say 11 at different times), we like to imagine successive waves of womxn and our allies pausing around the world.

PASS IT ALONG


Yes, I want to pass the word along.

We stop, and think about the new world we are trying to bring into being — a future of peace and justice where no one, and nothing in nature, is treated as “the other”; a world in which womxn no longer live in fear for our lives — and the life of the earth itself.

This is our daily strike — as short as an instant, or as long as we want or dare.

We dedicate this work to ALL womxn and our allies, from the past, present, and future, who believe another world is possible and are bringing it into being every day.

We stand in solidarity with Black womxn, Indigenous womxn, and womxn of color, and in sisterhood with our siblings of all gender identities who dream of a future beyond the patriarchy.

The original chain letter text, which we have adapted, was co-written in 1983 by a group of women at the Seneca Women’s Encampment for a Future of Peace and Justice – the largest and longest-running women’s resistance against militarism in the United States.

French translation by Sophie Jodoin.

This website is hosted on a server in Montreal. Montreal is located on the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) Nation.
We support Idle No More and other Indigenous movements, as there can be no future of justice and peace without Indigenous sovereignty.
