One Billion Rising: A campaign to stop violence against women

One Billion Rising Sri Lanka (link to FB page) is the local chapter of a worldwide campaign to stop violence against women.

OBR Sri Lanka will be organising a demonstration at Lipton Circus at 4.30pm on Thursday, 14th of February 2013 followed by a candlelight vigil at the same location at 6pm, dedicated to all the women and children who have been abused, harassed, raped and killed because of Gender Based Violence. They invite everyone to come dressed in black, red or pink to show your solidarity towards the movement.

Its a good cause, I think one should support it in whatever way one can, not least by speaking up whenever we witness it, in our houses, families or amongst friends.
