March

March route

The march and the events are all coming together-yay! (see the post below for details of a film screening)

The march will kick off with a pre-march gathering at 6:30-7:30pm the Cornerstone Cafe. This will be a great start where we can meet, chat and make posters. We will then set off from Festival Square at 7.30pm. The march is being led by the Commotion Women Drummers with women taking the lead and men following. We will walk down Lothian Road, onto Princes Street, up The Mound, where men from the discussion group at the wash bar (6:30-7:30) will join in solidarity. We will then walk up North Bridge, Bristo PLace, and Teviot Place, ending in the Meadows.

Once at the Meadows, we will have a rally. Speakers at the rally will be Sandy Brindley (Rape Crisis Scotland), Iain Wallace (White Ribbon Campaign), Ellie Hutchinson (Edinburgh Feminist Network-that’s us!), and survivor stories will be read by women from Edinburgh Feminist Network.

Following the march, we will head up to the Wee Red Bar for drinks and dancing to celebrate the fantastic march, DJing women and feminist fun from 10-3, tickets on the door for £2.

Events

On Sunday 7th October at 1.30pm, the Cameo are screening a double bill to raise awareness for the march.

Starting with Fire, part of a series of films by Indian director Deepa Mehta which look into family relationships, abuse and sexuality in India.

The second film, Volver directed by Almodovar, is a brilliant exploration of the relationships between mothers and daughters which tackles issues around incest and child sexual abuse. (one of my personal faves!)

Come along, learn more about the march and enjoy some amazing films!
