Solidarity with American Women’s Struggle for Abortion Rights: A Statement of the Red Ant Collective stands in solidarity with the women of America, and with all women, following the decision to overturn the Roe v Wade precedent on abortion rights in the United States. We condemn the Supreme Courts decision to overturn women’s right to a safe abortion and their bodily autonomy.

This decision will put the lives of women at risk, in particular the lives of marginalised and working class women. These recent events highlight that the capitalist system is built on the oppression and coercive control of women including control of their reproductive capacity.

We commit to standing together, to mobilise against these forces, and to continue to challenge all forms of social control against women.
