Bus to Million Women Rise March

3 Feb

The Million Women Rise march in London is taking place on Saturday, 5th March 2011 this year.

Million Women Rise Cymru is organising a low cost bus for women from South  Wales to take you there and back in one day. As well as the March, there will be a Rally in Trafalgar Square and an after party at nearby venue.

It would be really great to have as many women as possible from Wales represented, so get together, make a banner (optional) and join the march to end violence against women. The more of us there are the stronger the message.

Pick up locations are: Lampeter, Llanelli, Swansea and Cardiff.

Tickets Prices: are £25 waged, £15 low income, £12 no income/benefits/children. There are also a limited number of tickets available for women with no recourse to public funds.

Tickets are now starting to sell fast, so if you want to come, contact us for a bus ticket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

For Bus Tickets: email millionwomenrisecymru2010@hotmail.co.uk or call/text 07951 069 474 or 07531 616 434.

Why march?

A woman’s right to live free from violence and / or the fear of violence has not
been achieved. Women continue to be attacked and violated in many different
ways, in our homes, on our streets, on our public transport, at our places of
work. The government, the TV and newspapers do very little to address this
issue; instead they often blame women for wearing the wrong clothes or being in
the wrong place.

If you think this needs to change, then join us on a public demonstration to
show those in power that it’s just not good enough! We need to show our mass
dissatisfaction; we need to be strong together and in large numbers. Unity is
strength; the voices of many are louder together than a single voice.

Together and united we are ending male violence against women and children.

If you want to see change for yourself, your children, your families, your
communities then come out and say no to violence against women!
