In Heidelberg wird es am 14. Februar 2016 erneut eine Tanzdemo gegen Gewalt an Frauen* und Mädchen* geben. Mehr Infos findet zu #OneBillionRising findet ihr hier: http://www.onebillionrising.de/

ONE BILLION RISING … das ist:

Ein globaler Streik. Eine Einladung zum Tanz. Ein Akt weltweiter Solidarität, eine Demonstration der Gemeinsamkeit, womit Frauen sich tagtäglich auseinandersetzen müssen … und zu zeigen, wie viele wir sind. Eine Verweigerung dessen, Gewalt gegen Mädchen und Frauen als gegeben hinnehmen zu müssen. Eine neue Zeit und eine neue Art des SEINS.

Am 14. Februar laden wir eine Milliarde Frauen (und Männer) dazu ein, sich zu erheben, zu tanzen und sich auf der ganzen Welt mit uns allen zu verbinden, um das Ende dieser Gewalt zu fordern. Eine Milliarde Frauen – und Männer – überall auf der Welt. Wir zeigen unsere kollektive Stärke und unsere globale Solidarität über alle Grenzen hinweg. Zeig auch Du der Welt am 14. Februar, wie EINE MILLIARDE aussieht. Am 14. Februar sieht sie aus wie eine REVOLUTION. Macht alle mit!

What is ONE BILLION RISING?

About One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On 14 February 2013, people across the world came together to express their outrage, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women. On 14 February 2014, One Billion Rising for Justice focused on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and highlighted the impunity that lives at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. For the third year of the campaign, One Billion Rising’s global coordinators chose the theme of “Revolution” as an escalation of the demand for justice, and to build upon the massive efforts of communities worldwide that also looked at the roots and causes of violence as part of their call for justice. On (or around) 14 February 2015, millions of activists in over 200 countries gathered to Rise for REVOLUTION, to change the paradigm, demand accountability, justice and systematic CHANGE. We are rising to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable. In 2016, the theme of Revolution continues with a call to focus on marginalised women and to bring national and international focus to their issues; to bring in new artistic energy; to amplify Revolution as a call for system change to end violence against women and girls; to call on people to rise for others, and not just for ourselves.
