Party members march to ‘Reclaim the Night’

Several hundred people marched though Belfast city centre on Saturday evening  to high light late night violence against women, in particular, the LGBT community and others.

The ‘Reclaim the Night’ movement started almost forty years ago and is now a world wide camapign. Saturday night’s march in Belfast was designed to raise awareness on street harassment and gender violence and was part of the United Nations campaign for  16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.
