University students and charities are coming together to march for an end to violence against women.
The Reclaim the Night march in Ipswich on Thursday, December 6 has been organised by Suffolk Rape Crisis, with support from the Suffolk Feminist Society Network and the University of Suffolk Students’ Union.
The march starts at the University of Suffolk at 6pm.
It heads to Grimwade Street, Majors Corner, into Carr Street and Tavern Street to the Cornhill, then down Queen Street, St Nicholas Street, St Peters Street and back along the waterfront to the university.
Amy Roch, director at Suffolk Rape Crisis, said: “We are saying that something needs to be done on the street.
You may also want to watch:
“We’re calling on Ipswich Borough Council to establish a charter that pubs, clubs and establishments in town can sign up for to say that their staff are trained and prepared to keep women safe in their premises.
“We’ll also be ending the march with female fire dancers outside the University of Suffolk on the waterfront – and our after party hosted by Anna Matthews at La Tour Cycle Café, so a massive thank you to her.”
