Reclaim the Night – Bendigo 2012

Inspired by the annual Reclaim the Night marches worldwide that protest violence against women, and claim public space as a safe space for women, we will march in Bendigo to assert women’s right to access the city free from harassment and violence.

Friday 26 October, 2012
7pm start at the Old Fire Station (52 View Street, Bendigo).

Let’s gather and march in a night of music, dancing, singing and celebration to show the world that we will not tolerate violence against women.

Everyone welcome.

Please invite all your friends; women, men and children, to a night of music, dancing, singing and celebration to show the world that we will not be too scared to leave our homes. Instead, we will foster a culture of safety and walk tall in the beautiful night.

Bring signs and banners, bring lanterns, candles or use virtual candles (iPhone or Android). You can also join the Facebook group. If it rains, the show will go on! Bring your umbrella and wet weather gear…

Reclaim The Night is an international event that has been held in Australia since 1978. This event is just one of a series of Reclaim the Night events happening across Melbourne and Victoria this October.

It’s time to end harassment and violence against women in our community, for the good of our whole community.

Read the article from The Bendigo Advertiser before and after the event.
