OBR 2014 Brussels

Next week! ONE BILLION RISING in Brussels: Rising for Justice! 14 February 2014, JOIN US!

[Brussels, 7 February 2014] On 14 February 2014, the European Women’s Lobby plans to bring together an excited crowd in front of the Palais the Justice in Brussels to rise, dance and speak out about the urgent need for justice and support for the women victims of violence. This event is part of the Global Campaing ONE BILLION RISING (OBR) initiated by V-Day.

There will be live music by Mary-Ann Struthers, a grass band la Clinik du Dr. Poemback and an acrobatic spectacle! We will sing and dance on EWL’s song "Rise up! Stand Up!".

And we will also speak out about the urgent need for justice and support for the women victims of violence through a symbolic action of bringing testimonies of victims of violence to the Justice Palace.

A lot of ideas that will make this event something extraordinary!
