The Multicultural Women’s Group of Bury St Edmunds (MWG) will be carrying out a demonstration in Bury St Edmund, next month, in support of One Billion Rising (OBR), the biggest mass action to end violence against womem.
It is taking place on Angel Hill, from noon, on Saturday, February 17, and the mayor and mayoress of St Edmundsbury Terry and Vivienne Clements, are due to take part along with the deputy mayor Margaret Marks.
Representatives from the local Women’s Aid charity are also planning to attend making a collection for the women’s refuge in the town.
The event will involve members dressing in red and performing the “Break the Chain” dance and MWG spokeswoman Gayle Wade said: “You don’t have to dance but if you do want to there are instruction videos on the OBR website and on YouTube. Wearing red is a sign of support and makes our statement visible.”
The Multicultural Women’s Group of Bury St Edmunds is a community group which offers a social support network to women of all nationalities in and around Bury St Edmunds.
