Putting the system on trial

// 5 February 2008

Women Against Rape are holding a public trial, to draw attention to the failure of the criminal justice system when it comes to rape.

From the organisation’s press release:

BUT MOST RAPISTS STILL GET AWAY WITH IT!

What is the point of recommendations, complaints and appeals procedures, specialist police, prosecutors and judges, inspectorates, women in government, and more laws if those in charge of implementing them refuse over and over to do their job?

WE WANT THOSE IN CHARGE OF JUSTICE TO BE HELD TO ACCOUNT!

Have your say on 16 February 2008. Testify about your experience of dealing with sexual, domestic and other violence, what you did to try to get protection and justice and what response you got from each of the authorities. Male survivors of sexual violence are also welcome.

We will have dark glasses, masks and screens for anyone who wants to disguise their identity.

Venue:

Trinity United Reformed Church

Buck St, Camden, London NW1

1 min Camden Tube; Accessible entrance, accessible toilet nearby; Please book crèche in advance

GIVE EVIDENCE! BE THE JURY! FILL THE PUBLIC GALLERY!

MAKE SURE OUR VOICE FOR JUSTICE PREVAILS!

ALL WELCOME! SPREAD THE WORD!

Have Your say
