Taking a stand against the abuse of women and children

The community of Primrose braved the cold and wet weather, last Saturday, to take a stand against the abuse of women and children in a march through the streets of Primrose. The march marked the start of 16 Days of Activism Against the Abuse of Women and Children.

Primrose community members didn’t let the cold and wet weather stop them from taking a stand against the abuse of women and children, last Saturday.

The residents took to the streets in a march, which was part of the 16 Days of Activism Against the Abuse of Women and Children.

The world-wide campaign runs from November 25 to December 10 each year and challenges people across the globe to stand against the abuse of women and children, and, ultimately, to put an end to it.

This year marks the 16th year that South Africa will be taking part in this campaign.

The Primrose march began at Hoërskool Vryburger High School in Churchill Avenue as rain began to fall.

Undeterred, the group marched from the school into Churchill Avenue, Shamrock, Rietfontein and Poppy roads, before coming to a stop at the Primrose Police Station.

The group was addressed by the Primrose Police’s Station commander Col Albertina Vesi and Ward 36 Clr Wendy Morgan on the importance of the campaign, not just in the 16 days allocated to it, but throughout the year.

The march ended back at the school.
