To mark the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Next Link is inviting people to join its candlelit march to highlight the number of women and children affected by Domestic Abuse and Rape and Sexual Abuse. The march highlights the United Nation’s International Elimination of Violence against Women’s day.

The procession will leave Next Link, 5 Queen Square BS1 4JQ at 4.30pm and make its way to College Green.

Here, at 5pm, Sue Mountstevens Police and Crime Commissioner will say a few words and two larger candles will be lit by survivors to symbolise the two women who die each week through domestic abuse in this country. There will also be a minutes silence for gatherers to pay their respects to those whose lives have affected by domestic abuse, rape and sexual assault.

Please come and join us!
