People can show up on the 12th and take this walk along with everybody else and show that there is a broad coalition from different parties and background and that we converge on this issue. There is no politics, that in this country we have a toxic attitude towards the rights of women and this is one area we can do murder prevention, putting a stop to domestic violence.

JP Smith, Mayco Member for Safety and Security

The march starts at Keizersgracht street in front of CPUT and it ends at Parliament from 12pm - 2 pm on Thursday 12 July.
