A black and white photograph of three young girls saluting and wearing 1940s-style dresses and hats. They are placed on a colorful background of purple, gold, and dark green fan shapes. Text below, in gold, states: “RESPECT BELOVED COMMUNITY.” In smaller text: “These three Japanese American girls pictured in their Brownie uniforms, spent their early childhood incarcerated in an American concentration camp without due process of law.”

Seven different portraits of women, in a black and white line drawing style, are interconnected by root-like lines and branches in blue and gold. Pink flowers hang from these interconnections. Gold text on the bottom states: “PROTECT EACH OTHER.”

Colorful quilt-like shapes frame a woman carrying her baby in a front baby carrier. She holds up a sign that states: “WE BELONG HERE” with text also in Vietnamese and Chinese.

A grandma sits with her grandchildren as she sews pieces of a beautiful, complex crazy quilt. Text below states: “BEAUTY OF US.”

A young person with shaved sides of their head and arm tattoos hugs their elder, perhaps their grandmother. Stars and a cosmos swirl around them. Text below states: “NO ONE LIKE YOU.”

A porcelain plate with soft delicate flowers frames a drawing of two women with interlocking arms. They wear traditional Asian-printed outfits. Text below states: “TOGETHER.”

A bowl with blue Asian flower motifs is full of noodles and meat. Shiny orange persimmons scatter the table. A framed picture of a grandmother gardening with her granddaughter is propped against a red cloud patterned background. The text, “PROTECT & SAVOR” is in gold below.

Seattle’s International Working Women’s Day for Palestine and Beyond

March 12, 2024

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
