Mitchells Plain marches against violence

About 150 people supported by many organisations marched from Langeberg Road to Freedom Park in Mitchells Plain to protest gender-based violence as part of the global 16 Days of Activism Campaign.

South Africa has notoriously high rates of rape and sexual assault. And according to the Western Cape Department of Community Safety a child goes missing every six hours. There are over 100 cases of child abuse reported every week.
