LA ASAMBLEA TRANSMARICABOLLO DE SOL

EN EL MARCO DEL OCTUBRE TRANS Y LA CAMPAÑA GLOBAL STP POR LA DESPATOLOGIZACIÓN DE LA TRANSEXUALIDAD

CONVOCA DURANTE EL OCTUBRE TRANS UNA

HUELGA DE GÉNERO

GLOBAL

CON POSIBLE PRÓRROGA INDEFINIDA

 

Las identidades binarias de género (Mujer y Hombre) son instrumentos históricos de dominaciónque se sitúan en la base de los sistemas económicos y de poder que articulan el capitalismo actual. Estas identidades, lejos de ser universales, son arbitrarias y se imponen a las personas desde el sistema médico-legal con la finalidad de inscribirlas en un modelo de producción basado en la familia nuclear heterosexual.

 

La identidades binarias de género se adscriben a  las personas cuando nacen a través las categorías de sexo biológico (hembra y macho), que implican una reducción de la sexualidad a la genitalidad y de esta a su funcionalidad en el marco de la reproducción heterosexual. Pero la sexualidad no se reduce ni a la genitalidad ni a la reproducción… entonces, ¿para qué usamos la distinción mujer-hombre, sino para generar diferencias de clase?

 

Las personas intersexuales, que nacen con una anatomía genital no claramente identificable en términos de sexo masculino o femenino, son habitualmente operadas al poco tiempo de nacer con la finalidad de inscribirlas en el sistema binario de dominación. Mientras, la transexualidad y el travestismo son considerados una enfermedad en los manuales médicos y en leyes aprobadas por este Gobierno con disforia política. Por ello defendemos la despatologización de las personas trans, demandamos la eliminación del  patologizante requisito de diagnostico de “disforia de género” para el cambio registral de nombre y sexo, la eliminación de los plazos de hormonación obligatoria que condenan a la mayoría de las personas trans a la esterilidad, así como el acceso de las personas inmigrantes y de lxs menores al protocolo de cambio de nombre y sexo. Por último, reclamamos la eliminación de los protocolos médicos de normalización binaria para personas trans e intersexuales (como el test de la vida real, cirugías de normalización genital, etc.), y defendemos la lucha de muchas personas trans por una reasignación de género frente a los problemas con que se encuentran para ello.

 

A su vez hay personas transgénero que no se identifican ni como hombres ni como mujeres, las hay que reivindican identidades en tránsito o trayectos de género, y otras que reivindican un género neutro, que inventan otros géneros, o que rechazan la identidad de género en su conjunto. Cualquier persona puede legítimamente, si lo desea, rechazar esta identidad que se nos ha impuesto a tod@s de forma arbitraria para asimilarnos en el sistema global de dominación.

 

Esto no solo es una opción legítima de cada persona sino también una lucha solidaria con las personas trans e intersexuales por la violencia sistemática que sufren, tanto por parte del sistema médico-legal como de la sociedad en general, una violencia que sufren también todas las personas que no encajan en las normas sexuales y de género y que de forma implícita afecta a todas las personas, ya que todas somos sometidas a la identificación binaria, lo querámos o no, sin otra alternativa posible por parte del sistema.

 

Por ello convocamos una huelga global de género durante el octubre trans, en la que cualquier persona, de cualquier edad, clase, procedencia, o condición y en cualquier lugar del mundo, podrárechazar por un tiempo indefinido, la identidad de mujer o de hombre que se le haya impuesto.

 

¿Como se lleva a cabo la huelga de género?

  • Manifestando públicamente siempre que se tenga ocasión la no identificación como hombre ni como mujer y el rechazo a estas categorías de dominación, e identificándose como de-generad@.
  • Cuestionando y subvirtiendo los roles y comportamientos de género binario que cada persona asume en su vida cotidiana (formas de vestir y de apariencia, lenguaje corporal, etc.)
  • Entrando en los baños del sexo-género opuesto al adscrito a cada persona en todos aquellos lugares en los que los baños se separan en función de las categorías binarias de hombre-mujer; en  solidaridad con las personas trans y la violencia que sufren cotidianamente en los baños de locales públicos.
  • Reclamando en las tiendas de ropa tallas y modelos que no estén diferenciados en función del sexo-género binario.
  • Rehusando rellenar formularios impresos u online, oficiales o de otro tipo, en los que sea obligatoria la mención de género y presentando reclamaciones ante las entidades correspondientes exigiendo la corrección del formulario para que incluya la posibilidad de no identificarse ni como hombre ni como mujer.
  • Elevando recursos ante los tribunales locales, autonómicos, estatales, europeos e internacionales, solicitando la no adscripción a ningún genero binario y que la mención a esta desaparezca del DNI y demás documentos oficiales para todas las personas que lo deseen.

OF THE SPANISH REVOLUTION 2011 MOVEMENT IN MADRID, IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE OCTOBER TRANS AND THE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN

STP  – STOP TRANS PATHOLOGISATION

CALLS FOR A GLOBAL

GENDER STRIKE

DURING THE TRANS OCTOBER

WITH POSSIBLE INDEFINITE CONTINUATION

 

Binary gender identities (man and woman) are historic domination tools situated at the foundations of the economic and power systems that articulate contemporary capitalism. These identities, far from being universal, are arbitrary, and imposed upon each person by the medical-legal establishment with the goal of inscribing us in a production model based on the nuclear heterosexual family.

 

Binary gender identities are assigned to each new born person through the categories of biological sex (female and male), which imply a reductionism of sexuality to genitals and of these to functional heterosexual reproduction. But sexuality is not reduced to genitals or to reproduction, so… Why do we keep using these distinctions unless for the sake of class differentiations?

 

Intersexual people, who are born with genitals not fully identifiable within the binary male-female framework, are usually operated without their consent, with the goal of inscribing them in the binary domination system. Meanwhile, transsexualism and transvestism are considered an illness in the official medical manuals. We therefore claim de depathologisation of transsexualism and the elimination of all compulsory protocols of binary normalization of bodies, while we defend the right for gender reassignation claimed by many transsexual people.

 

Also there are transgender people who don’t identify as neither woman nor man, there are those who demand a neutral gender, those who speak about genders in transition o about trajectories of gender, those who invent other genders and those who deny gender altogether.

 

Any person may legitimately reject the binary gender identity that has been imposed upon us all arbitrarily for the sake of assimilating us in the global system of domination. This is not only a legitimate individual choice, but also a solidary politics with regard to transgender, transsexual and intersexual people and the systemic and daily violence that both the medical-legal system and society exercise over them, and upon all those who don’t conform to the sexual norm. This violence affects all persons in different manners, since we are all subject to these norms.

 

For this purpose we call for a global GENDER STRYKE during the Trans October, with possible indefinite continuation, in which any person, from any age, class, race or whichever other kind, anywhere in the world, may reject the identity of man or woman that has been imposed over hir.

 

¿How do you make a Gender Stryke?

  • By publicly expressing the rejection and disidentification with both female or male identities, and identifying oneself as de-gener@te.
  • By refusing to fill in print or online forms, official or of any other kind, in which binary gender identification is compulsory and presenting official complaints to the corresponding entity claiming the correction of the form so that it includes the option not to be identified as neither male nor female.
  • By questioning and subverting the gender roles and behaviours traditionally attached to the gender identity that one has assumed.
  • By entering the toilets of the opposite gender to the one assigned in all places with binary gender distinctions; in solidarity with the violence that trans people suffer daily in toilets all over the world
  • By claiming in all clothes shops for sizes and models that don’t correspond to binary gender distinctions.
  • By putting claims in the local, national, European and international courts claiming for the right to not identify as neither male nor female, and for the erasure of gender identity from  official documents.

STOP AN EVICTION IN LEGANES

Leganes popular assembly has decided to focus all of their energies in stopping the eviction of Conchi and her two sons. This time the eviction is due to lack of rent payment. The case is particularly  serious, not only because of  Conchi´s family economy, but also because the lessor is Madrid Regional Government Corporation for Housing (IVIMA).
Conchi has received the eviction notice recently; their eviction is due to take place on 7th July at 11 AM. Flat address is Avenida María Moliner, Nº 36.
Conchi is unemployed at the moment. She is the mother of two sons, the kids were raised by Conchi on her own. This case is not entirely dealing with an alleged  lack of rent payment; Conchi has tried to pay some rent amounts which have been rejected by IVIMA.

Iberdrola complains about ‘0 consumption’

Iberdrola complains about ‘0 consumption’
Did you forget to switch off? Don’t worry. There’ll be more opportunities. Next Tuesday, for example. It’s a peaceful and easy way to protest. There’s no reason why we all shouldn’t do our little bit to change things. Whose hands is the power in? We´ll see each other at the big switch off, in the dark of course.

We finally have facts and figures about the big switch off.
According to sources which are obviously unofficial , more than a third of households (some 8 million) in Spain supported the protest which, if we include central heating, and based on an approximate consumption of 1kw per person per 30 minutes and on a price of 0.12 euros per kw, led to Iberdrola losing 960,000 euros.

Almost a million euros

But there’s more. The tax authorities, responsible for the deregulation of prices, lost approximately 173.000 in VAT, almost 29 million pesetas.

Two birds with one stone

It seems that at Iberdrola they are very concerned about the losses caused by the big switch off.

Let’s make it happen again and make those losses even greater.

Join the ‘Tuesdays, zero consumption’ group.

This Tuesday we’ll be switching off again from 22.00 to 22.30.

And the same every Tuesday till the increase in prices is reduced so that it is the same as the increase in the retail price index.

This is the way ordinary people can fight injustice. Let’s not give our money to the rich to make then even richer. Our money is for us.

 

Take the Coast, take the mountains!

Dear comrades

We want to tell you about the exciting proposal that came out of the weekend we were visited in Madrid by comrades from other cities: ‘Take the coast, take the mountains’.

Since that day we’ve been debating this proposal and how to make it into a mass protest.

The idea is that from 1 August we travel to those areas on the coast and inland which have suffered as a result of pollution, corruption in the construction industry, overcommercialisation
as a result of tourism, destruction of the countryside, diversion of waterways, reservoir construction etc.

We will set up campsites in these areas to raise consciousness of the abuses which are taking place and organise events such as informative workshops. These campsites will be entirely environmentally friendly.

What we need from you is enthusiasm and commitment. We are encouraging everyone to spread the word about this initiative. From Madrid we plan to travel to the mountains of the Laciana Valley in León and be there from 26 August to 5 September to defend the Earth against the destruction being caused there by the open-cast coalmines. We also want to denounce the political and enconomic corruption  that is behind this totally unnecessary destrucion of the environment.
