Reclaim The Night 2014: 10th anniversary
« on: Sep 13, 2014, 02:27:56 PM »
Violence against women continues to occur every minute of every day, but women everywhere are making a stand. Join us and join millions across the globe who will be marking the annual United Nations Day to End Violence Against Women (25th November) with demonstrations and marches in their own localities.

With ideological cuts threatening the refuge and rape crisis movements in the UK we need to take back the capital to demonstrate women’s support for essential women’s services, demand justice for survivors and spread the message that no woman is ever to blame for male violence against her.

This year is the tenth anniversary since Reclaim The Night was revived in London, so ‘bring some tin, and make a din’. We encourage you to bring tin drums, tin whistles, tambourines, etc, to really make a noise! Wear tin (silver) coloured items if you can. Bring placards, banners, friends and song. March for your friends and family, your colleagues, your daughters, yourself – march for all of us; march for a better world, free from violence and abuse.

i agree - as i think with all the new Cultures joining Europe so on so forth it is REALLY IMPORTANT FOR WOMEN TO KEEP THESE ISSUES DIRECT IN THE HEADLINES/MARCHES ETC.
I ALWAYS DO MY UTMOST JOIN RECLAIM THE NIGHT EACH YEAR.
Let make it a March TO BE PROUD OF..BY TELLING EVERYONE AND JOINING IN YOURSELF!! ;)

Btw, for Newbies..men and pushchairs can JOIN IN TOO!! :)

London Reclaim The Night is a women-only march, and it is only open to boys attending with their mothers/guardians.

Male supporters are welcome at the rally or at the men's vigil.

Just over a week to go - the website is being constantly updated, so keep checking for the latest news.

We have a great line-up of speakers and performers coming on the night, and really pleased to say that Jo Bunny (from GB) has agreed to be one of our DJs. Thanks to Jo!
