Silent March Says It All

A silent march was led by the members of Soroptimist International (SI) Labasa in the main street of the northern town on Wednesday.

The silent march called, ‘Walk the Talk’, was organised by SI in collaboration with the ‘16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence’.

The march started from Y-Corner at 1.30pm and ended at Subrail Park in Labasa. SI Labasa president Pushpa Singh said the message being disseminated during the march was to stop the violence against women and girls.

“It was a silent march supported by many people from different organisation,” Mrs Singh said.

“Through placards we are telling the people of Labasa Town that there should be zero-tolerance on violence against females whether they are relatives or not.”

“We walked and did the talk by displaying our thoughts and messages on the placards.

“Women and girls deserve to be treated with love and respect and not abused,” she said.

“Through our walk today we are also informing women that we are there to help them in any way we can.”

“We are a women’s organisation and we have helped out many people and are happy to assist them live a life of dignity.”

This is the first time SI organised a silent march in Labasa
