This coming Sunday, August 2, Sherbrooke will be host to a march against sexual violence. Starting at 11 a.m. the demonstrators will leave Victoria Park in Fleurimont and make their way to the Police headquarters on Maurice Houle street.
“We’re trying to bring this to the attention of the system, among others,” said Dodz Daye, one of the event’s organizers, explaining that that the event finds its roots in the local revival of the #metoo movement by Montreal activist Sabrina Comeau over the course of the last month. “Since she decided to speak up about her experience with sexual violence, the #metoo movement was brought to life again and we thought it was time to do something about it rather than watch the movement go on and die on social media.”
