Witsies showed solidarity with all those who have been affected by sexual violence, yesterday. This the university’s second year participating in the Silent Protest. Most participants spent the day with their mouths taped in an act to show support for those who have survived under sexual violence. The protest was to raise awareness of the fact that one in three women and one in six men, are silenced by sexual violence. The protest aims to emphasize that it is not an anti-rape protest but a pro-survivor protest.
