Sam Edwards, Chief Executive to the campaign one voice for the kids, sent me an email sharing the details of a rally they have planned for Aug 11, in Aberdeen, Scotland. If you’re a survivor in the UK, I thought I would pass along the information for you:
Onevoice for the kids was launched in March 2010 with the remit to challenge to Government on how
child abusers and paedophiles are sentenced in the UK.
I am writing to you to invite you and your organisation to the one voice for the kids rally
against child abuse that is scheduled for 21st August 2011. This rally will be in Aberdeen’s
Duthie Park and will start at 10am and finish at 4pm. This is an opportunity for all like minded
organisations to unite and inform people what they do and what their organisation has acheived.
One voice is also looking to create a network of all like minded organisations to join and forge
alliances with one another. We want to create the largest network of its kind in the UK.
Please could you get in contact with myself at your earliest convenience to discuss this matter
further. We are encouraging open mic slots throughout the day a chance for each group to promote
themselves. If you would like to attend and, to avoid disappointment, we advise that you book
early. Entrance is free and we encourage groups to bring a stall with them. Bring any publicity
material you want to inform the public what your organisation does. There will also be guest
speakers on the day and, I must also inform you that the rally maybe filmed and speeches aired
Organisations that will be there on the day include; Against Child Abuse, Global Fighters
Protecting Children UK, Free From Fear, Hollie Demands Justice and guest speakers such as Vicky Haigh. We are encouraging any survivors of childhood abuse to attend this rally in Aberdeen and,
if they wish, they can have the opportunity to speak at the rally.
