1 Billion Rising Cambridge
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.
The Cambridge event was organised by members of Cambridge Women’s Resource Centre and other city activists including Rebel Arts .It started on Petersfield, off East Road, now re-named Leftfield by City activists , and was followed by a march along Mill Road to the resource centre in Hooper Street, where Cambridge band Flaming June provided musical entertainment
