Hello Sisters, the Million Women Rise March is happening Saturday 8th March 2014 and tickets are now on sale for the Bus from South Wales to the Million Women Rise March.
THE TIME IS NOW... THE POWER IS TOGETHER
MILLION WOMEN RISE
8 MARCH 2014 - LONDON
TO-GET-HER WE RISE
We encourage women to WEAR RED...
For MWR it symbolizes the colour of Woman and her blood, the blood of our sisters who have been murdered and raped , our blood which contains life, courage, respect, dignity and protection.
Last year around 10,000 women marched in London at the Million Women Rise March to End Male Violence against Women and Girls!
Let's help make this year's march even bigger. Bring your mothers, sisters, daughters, women friends and help make it two buses from Wales in 2013.
We are asking all women to book tickets early and the booking and payment deadline is Friday 21st February as we will not be able to accept bookings after that date. The reason is to ensure we can make the bus viable we need to cover our costs by this date otherwise we will have to consider cancelling and making refunds. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to subsidise any shortfalls ourselves, so if you want the bus to run, we are asking all of you to help promote the bus and the march, bring a friend and/or family member. We have 49 seats available, so your help is vital in making it happen this year.
Please note your ticket is only confirmed once payment has been received.
This year we have been able to hold last years prices to keep it affordable.
The 2014 sliding scale is:
£28 – waged - medium to high income
£17.50 – waged - low income
£13 - no income/benefits or children
*Free – women with no recourse to public funds (limited number of tickets available)
