International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women: Next Link Candle Lit Vigil

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 marks the United Nation’s International Elimination of Violence against Women day.

The procession will leave Next Link, 5 Queen Square BS1 5JQ on 23rd November 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, many of them Disabled women.
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.  So please join them!

If you can please bring a jam jar or portable tealight holder- tealights and hot chocolate will be provided before the march.
