5pm RALLY TO SUPPORT WOMEN WHO'VE STOOD UP AGAINST MEN ABUSING THEIR POWER
Outside the Courthouse, Lower Stuart St.
Rape Crisis was the first support/advocacy service of its kind in New Zealand and founded in Dunedin 25 years ago, so we believe that it is important that the current issue needs to be recognised publicly. Therefore we give Dunedin people an opportunity to publicly express their indignation at the outcome and travesty of justice at the recent historic rape trials.
Wear black, bring placards/banners.
8pm VIGIL OF SOLIDARITY FOR WOMEN WHO SPEAK OUT ABOUT RAPE
Otago Museum Reserve (between Albany St and the One Way South and the One Way North).
Amnesty International and the Dunedin Rape Crisis Collective warmly welcome Dunedin women and their whanau, and all interested people, to join us this Thursday evening at 8pm outside the Otago Museum, for a candle-lit vigil to show support for women that have been victims of abuse and for all women who speak out about rape.
We can express our whole hearted support and gratitude to Louise Nicholas and the other brave women who have spoken out about the injustice of rape.
This day also marks the historic International Women’s Day, which makes it even more special to join in solidarity along with other community organisations.
Amnesty International is currently campaigning to stop violence against women throughout the world.
Please come along and show your support and solidarity. Hope to see you there and please bring candles.
I'll add any more events as I hear of them. E-mail me if something is happening where you live.
I'll leave this post at the top of the page for a few days.
