16 Days of Activism against GBV

Marking the first day of this campaign, on November 25, activists from TAC, Social Justice Coalition and Triangle Project participated in a protest march through Ndlovini informal settlement to raise awareness about gender-based violence in this community. Residents watched and in some cases, joined in with the march through the main streets and up to the main football pitch. Activists from Social Justice Coalition and TAC spoke about the need to agitate against the everyday violence that occurs in the streets and homes of residents. Part of the march took activists past the nearly graves of two young girls, marked only by a small bouquet of flowers in one case, and police tape in the other. Residents were encouraged to speak out against violence and seek help from social workers and police to prosecute offenders.
