Naga City joins One Billion Rising for Justice

Naga City joins One Billion Rising for Justice
Nagueños is one with the rest of the world for the One Billion Rising for Justice movement.

At 4PM in Plaza Rizal, people from various parts of the city will respond to the global call to women survivors of violence break the silence and release their stories.

"Billion" in the name of the event represents the United Nations' statistics that one in three women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime, or around a billion.

As with the One Billion Rising event held last year, the gathering features a dance that symbolizes the strength of the masses against violence.

This year, more than 190 cities in the world are joining the movement.

In Bicol, Legazpi City will also participate in the one-day event.
