What do we stand for?
WE'RE A FEMINIST CREW
La Escondida is a feminist project thought for and by women and queer, trans, non-binary, intersex people, and gender non-conforming people.
By creating a space for persons who share the daily experience of certain systemic discriminations that result from patriarchal society, we aim to create an environment where we can feel comfortable being, exploring, talking about and building on our experiences.
Thus, we hope to release voices long silenced and challenge existing narratives.
WE'RE A DECOLONIAL SPACE
For years, collective battles for the fulfillment of human rights for all have spread worldwide with European and North American theories.
After decades of expansion, it seems that we have forgotten the experiences and knowledge of women from non-Western contexts. By questioning the thoughts that universalize the models of power and their struggles, we wish to produce decolonizing knowledge. As souls of the global south, we wish to reclaim our identities and act in solidarity with indigenous communities of the world.
FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL HUMANS
We stand for freedom and against all kinds of oppression and discrimination, whether based on sex, class, origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical appearance or others.
We understand these discriminations from an intersectional perspective, that is, we take into account the way in which these discriminations overlap, trying to understand the world with all its complexity.
Our fight is for the dignity and autonomy of everyone, because the world is great and beautiful and we should all be able to explore it with the same freedom and joy.
IN DEFENSE OF THE PLANET
In order to re-think and to build the world of tomorrow, we must ensure that the humanity of tomorrow exists. And that it does not end with the biodiversity and the diverse forms of life that inhabit this planet.
We wish to tackle the fight against climate change from a feminist, inclusive, decolonial and intersectional perspective that recognizes the wisdom of indigenous and rural communities on these essential issues and the key role these communities have played in these struggles.
