“Africa Rise Up” Campaign

Earlier this month, 17 year old Anene Booysen’s body was found the morning after she had been gang-raped at a construction site in Bredasdorp in the Western Cape on 2nd February 2013. Anene is one of many victims in South Africa, and recent rape/murder statistics have proven to be spiraling out of control.

Africa Unite will be campaigning against violence against women and children on 26 February 2013, at the Bredasdorp Magistrates Court in support of the Booysen’s family and many other victims of rape and violence in general.

The main objective of this campaign is to advocate, and act as a voice on behalf of victims and their families – so there may be justice.
