400 march to Reclaim the Night

Up to 400 people marched through Belfast city centre on Saturday night as part of Reclaim the Night. The message was clear: We want safe streets which women and members of the LGBT+ community can walk safely and without fear.
Placards, banners and chants highlighted the demands of the protesters. They called for women to reclaim the night, for the right to choose and an end to violence against women.
Socialist Youth and the Socialist Party had a lively contingent walking behind our banner “Break the silence, stop the violence – Their system breeds division”. In our material we highlighted the prevalence of gender as well as domestic violence and the need for the struggle for equality to be linked to the fight to protect our public services and for decent jobs and wages.
