This year, we are proud to be celebrating the 10th year of JASS’ annual regional campaign One Day, One Voice (ODOV), which aims to unite the initiatives of women across Southeast Asia around the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

Dear friends,

Please read the urgent condemnation letter to register support for the Nicaraguan feminists who've been targeted by their government for their support for reproductive rights and criticism of the shrinking democratic space in that country. If you'd like your name and organization to go onto the letter, please send it to petateras@justassociates.org. This kind of solidarity means an enormous amount to the Nicaraguan and Mesoamerican feminists gathered at the Forum.

Wow, what a week. It is hard to know where to start and exhaustion is setting in so my thoughts are all over the map. Perhaps I should begin by attempting to share some of the moments that stand out the most in my mind.

"Las Petateras," JASS's movement building allies in Mesoamerica, convened a press conference this morning to kick-off the activities planned during the Americas Social Forum, as well as to announce the declaration made by the Nobel Women's Initiative denouncing the violence, hostility and public smear campaign being conducted by Daniel Ortega's government in Nicaragua against outspoken feminist activists and leaders.

Commonwealth Munyonyo, Kampala was this year graced with the presence of at least 150 African women feminists who got together to continue with the feminist revolution. Throughout the 4 days women from at least 29 African countries planned, spoke, sang, danced and shared stories and thoughts from across Africa. The purpose of the AFF this year was to assess progress made on the commitments made at the AFF in 2006. It was also to mobilize efforts at national levels and develop best methodologies to implement the Charter of feminist principles of African feminists.

Dear Stephen Lewis,

Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to attend the International AIDS Conference in Mexico City. This meaningful experience provided us with the chance to get to know the political dynamics of HIV/AIDS face to face, and to be able to speak for ourselves as women affected by HIV/AIDS.

Sincerely,
JASS
