Slutwalk Newcastle 2011


Inspired by our sisters in Toronto, 4th of June will be Newcastle's first SlutWalk!

After comments made by Officer Sanguinetti of the Toronto police force, his audience decided enough was enough and it was time to make a stand against the culture of blaming the victim in sexual assault cases.

We are not necessarily asking our attendees that they “dress like sluts” as this idea is subjective, so please come dressed however you like, hijabs, hoodies, hotpants - whatever!. We welcome men, women, both and neither to march alongside us :)

We intend to assemble at Grey's Monument at 12 o'clock and finish at/near Leazes Park, since June 4th is also the Green Festival. We will be marching in solidarity with those in London, Cardiff and Glasgow who are holding events on the same day.

See you on the streets!

p.s. just to clarify, as there has been much confusion, THIS MARCH is Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK. The Anti-Sexual Assault Walk Newcastle on July 9th is in New South Wales, Australia; so while we offer our solidarity it would be rather costly to go over and join them on the streets :)
