Stop the Silence Campaign - Petition

The Stop the Silence Campaign asks the UK government and media to end the silence on the ongoing abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  The Congolese people continue to experience rape, the use of child soldiers and murder. 

This abuse is supported by the corrupt government, power in the country must change hands but the latest election is the another in a series of failures in democracy. 

Please sign to ask the global community to break the silence

IWD Women in Newcastle - call for pom-poms

A big thank you to everyone who supported the various Women’s 100 activities during 2018. For 2019, we are promoting women-focused activities under the banner of ‘Women in Newcastle’ and will again be organising a range of events and activities in and around International Women’s Day. Our centrepiece action will be on IWD itself and will be focused on the campaign theme of period poverty, comprising a flashmob choir and a direct action which will be ‘decorating’ Grey’s Monument with red pom-poms.

Enjoy the Break
