Take Back the Night (also known as Reclaim the Night) is an international event opposed to Sexual and Domestic violence against womyn, originated by the radical feminist movement.
Women are often told to be extra careful and take precautions when going out at night. In some parts of the world, even today, women are not allowed out at night. So when women fight for freedom, we must start at the beginning by demanding freedom of movement, which we have not had and do not now have. We must recognize that freedom of movement is a precondition for anything else. It comes before freedom of speech, because without it freedom of speech cannot in fact exist.
AAFS (Auckland Anarcha Feminist Syndicate) have organized a TAKE BACK THE NIGHT on October 28, at 7pm, in Aotea Square. We are hosting the event around Halloween, to emphasize the persecution of womyn throughout time. A witch theme is being incorporated into the event as a symbolic gesture of standing against the oppressive persecution of Womyn healers and Natural Midwifery.
There will be a rally, march and gender workshops for both Womyn and Men.
AAFS has organized a Social gathering for the womyn, to build strength and solidarity, along with discussions of future projects. A symbolic music and dance circle will be hosted in Myers Park, so please bring along any musical instruments.
Auckland Pro-Feminist Mens group will be hosting a discussion based workshop raising awareness to gender political issues.
They have compiled a zine which they will be distributing at the workshop.
Free food is going to be distributed at the Rally.
We hope to see you there!
