HELLO AND WELCOME

December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada. Established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, this day marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal. They died because they were women.

What will you do?

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering victims; it is also a time to take action. Your #ActionsMatter

Why a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women?

As well as commemorating the 14 young women whose lives ended in an act of gender-based violence that shocked the nation, December 6 represents an opportunity for Canadians to reflect on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also an opportunity to consider the women and girls for whom violence is a daily reality, and to remember those who have died as a result of gender-based violence. And finally, it is a day on which communities can consider concrete actions to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.

November and December are important months for raising awareness of gender-based violence in Canada and around the world. In addition to the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women on December 6, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women takes place on November 25 and marks the first day of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, which ends on December 10, with International Human Rights Day.

Against Racist Patriarchy

We are seeing the world occupied by racist, misogynistic, xenophobic leaders - fueled by the forces of neo liberal capitalism - and we must RISE against it.

We are fighting on every front. Escalations of Risings are taking place in direct response across the world from India to Poland to Texas, with artistic, creative, dance risings being planned daily and launches happening all over the globe.

Let THIS be our radical, revolutionary uniting.

THIS is the moment, be bold, be loud, be loving, BE BRAVE.

Women will not be moved back. We will resist and push forward in a way that we've never done before.

Sisters and women-loving men of the world UNITE.

Now more than ever IT IS TIME TO RISE.

RAGE, RISE, DISRUPT
