Message from the President of the Republic of South Africa,
Thabo Mbeki, on the Start of the 16 Days of No Violence Against Women and Children
Campaign, 25 November 2003
There is no doubt about the outrage we all feel
at the violence that is perpetrated against the women and children of our country
and the world.
In massive and open solidarity, let us show how we feel.
Wear a white ribbon from 25 November in 16 Days of Activism for No Violence
Against Women and Children.
Let these 16 days lay the foundation for ongoing
action until the abuse of women and children is eradicated - in our homes, places
of work and communities.
