BLACK VENUS PROTEST is a project by CALDODECULTIVO Collective, built with the complicity of a group of Polish female activists, who during the month of August 2017 have developed a series of performances / protests in various places of the city of Gdansk, which have been recorded as a video that shows that experience.
 
CALDODECULTIVO about the project:

Nowadays, women’s security, sexuality, and reproductive rights are in stake not only in Poland but around the world. There is a war against female bodies lead by far right politicians and religious leaders, although it is not war fought by guns but through “democratic means” it
is not less violent. Inspired by the Black Protest and the Women Strike this project’s objective is to create small groups of protest that interrupt the daily life and the public space making present the struggle for the rights of women.
