One Billion Rising

Postby Mariposa » Mon Feb 02, 2015 9:12 pm

On 14th February Almunecar women and supporters will be drumming dancing and rising for a revolution against violence to women and girls. We will be passing through the squares in the old town between 12noon and 2pm. Banners and placards welcome on the theme of love not violence. PLease join us if you want to express your desire to end rape, abuse and murder. If you want more information about this worldwide campaign look at onebillionrising.org. We are posting more information about the day in shops in Almunecar over the next few days.

Unfortunately I won't be in Spain on that occasion but I support you wholeheartedly in spirit, I abhor violence in any form, but against women, children and the weak it's unforgivable, good luck with the turnout :thumbup:

Thank you for your interest...it is an annual event worldwide but needs lots of energy to organise it! If any one wants to join in we will be wearing dark clothes and a red,pink or orange scarf or sash. It starts at 12. Noon near Paseo pala del Mar.

Oops sorry should be playa del Mar!
We are also looking for women to be involved with a reading/performance of the Vagina Monologues. Let us know on the 14th if you would like to get involved. Parts will be allocated on 18 th February, and we will be doing it as a fundraiser for a local women's organisation.

Thanks for your interest SandraMay! We had a great event involving our group and many Spanish women, and some students as well.
