In recent months, abortion bans have dominated the headlines. But these battles are not only happening in the U.S. We talked to colleagues and allies about abortion rights in Nicaragua, Mexico, the Philippines, and Zimbabwe – and what that means for people who need to access the full range of reproductive care.

It has been a long and intense day, emotionally draining - but in the spirit of strategizing for Southern Africa Women's Movement Building as JMBs, it was well worth it. The honesty that is not feasible in mainstream NGOs, the bonding across color, class, religion; and the "dinosaurs and chickens" working harmoniously together, arguing, disagreeing, building consensus... yes, we can! It could only happen in the middle of the most African city, where we can pretend we do not know about the monstrous traffic jams just a hundred meters away. Amandla!!

As I end the day, I would like to share my thoughts on the process on Planning for the Southern African Region.It has been an interesting process to be involved in, its shaping and defining Jass Southern africa as an organisation. It enables us to organise thoughts and plan for actions on movement building in the region through a process of reflection about what we've done as Jass southern africa in the past six moinths and where we going in the region. We have been able to come up with a great vision/goals of what we would like to see or achieve in the next 3years which is exciting and empowering as a JASS Movement Builder.
