One Billion Rising 2018

One Billion Rising 2018

The Multicultural Women’s Group of Bury St Edmunds is planning to hold this event on Angel Hill on Saturday 17 Feb 2018, starting at 12.00pm.   OBR is an international  campaign, opposing violence against women. As in previous years, this will involve dancing and recorded music.

We would like to invite you or members of your group to come along on the day to support OBR. You may have seen stories in the local press in previous years, with photos of women dressed in red performing the ‘Break the Chain’ dance on Angel Hill. You don’t have to dance, but if you do want to, there are instruction videos on the OBR website and on YouTube, including this one:  If you don’t want to dance, wearing red is a sign of support and makes our statement visible.

In previous years, we have also been able to collect for the local Women’s Aid charity on the day and we hope to do that again.

Please email Gayle if you hope to attend.
