About The Event

We will march to the tribunal in Brussels, carrying red hearts, and giving them to people that pass by. We hope to make this a positive march by spreading love and asking people question's about rape, to create more awareness about this subject. By this we hope people to realise what a drastic event this is and victims need all the support they can get. We will be supported by 'Sjorro El Torro' They will do a 20min performance with their amazing circusact!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ3xzkMwgxY We hope to make this a day to remember, we want to reach out to as many people as possible and leave them with a positive feeling! To spread a message as positive as possible is our goal.

About The Organization


There is still a strong atmosphere of taboo around rape and this has to change! Women and men have to be able to speak freely about this and people have to show respect and be supportive, so all rape victims know they are far from being alone in this, together we stand! And we don't take it that 1 in 3 women is a victim of rape all over the world and only 4% of all rapists get punished (in Belgium...) We want this to change!
We believe it is time to rise up for better policies towards victims of rape. The system needs to protect and support victims, instead of leaving them alone to find it all out. Now only 4% of all the declared rapists are pursued. Rapists of adults are rarely sentenced. There has to be more transparency in evidences and cases, more support for victims and we want the system to punish rapist much more severe. This is what we stand for.
