FEMALIVE Commemorative Silent Walk Against GBV, In Support of #16DaysOfActivism
This year on November 26th, you are invited to join us in standing in solidarity with Women Who Use Drugs, as part of the global #16DaysOfActivism campaign to highlight Gender-Based Violence!
Starting point: Mouille Point Lighthouse
This year, in Cape Town, you’re invited to participate in the SANPUD FEMALIVE Commemorative Silent Walk, supported by Women & Harm Reduction International Network and the 16 Days Of Activism organisation, which will highlight the plight of Women Who Use Drugs and the violence they face on the streets of our country. Our Walk is being supported by Women Harm Reduction International Network, EuroNPUD, Youth Rise, and the Global 16 Days Campaign.
JOIN US ON THE DAY TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY
Our Commemorative Silent Walk will take place in Seapoint, Cape Town, at 1pm on Friday November 26th starting with a gathering at Mouille Point Lighthouse. Everyone is welcome.
After the Walk, a representative from the Woodstock SAPS will lead a self-defense session to enable women to protect themselves, and all will be invited to sign a declaration to end violence against women who use drugs. Also available on the day will be refreshments, as well as the opportunity to donate women’s commodities and infant supplies to those in need.
Our Walk is about standing together and saying, “MY BODY, MY PROPERTY!‘ – and we invite you to join us!
