A massive thanks to everyone that joined us in protesting outside the Scottish Parliament on 14th February.

One Billion Rising was one of the biggest protests ever to be seen! Over the world, one billion people were being called to rise up, strike and take action against violence against women. Our Chairperson Lyn Jardine took the opportunity to motivate the crowd outside our Parliament and we all took the opportunity to make as much noise as possible to demand an end to violence against women!! Our service user group led in some amazing dancing to a selection of great tunes that celebrated and empowered women including Break the Chain, Respect, Sisters are doing it for themselves and Titanium. 

Watching all of the events unfold throughout the 24 hours of V-day was very emotional and it was such an empowering experience to be part of!!! We all had a brilliant day. The important thing too is that it did grab the attention of politicians and we have already had an MSP visit to the service following our protest. Well done everyone!!!
