The UEA Student Union held their first ever Reclaim the Night event in 2016. Students came out to show that "Norwich is no longer a place where you can be harmed or discriminated against for the colour of your skin, your faith, gender, sex, nationality or sexual orientation."
Last year, on International Women’s Day we marched again to say 'no' to harassment, and for gender equality in the wake of #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns.
This year we are marching again with the message of intersectionality, and particularly after Brexit, to say that Norwich is for all of us and we all have the right to be free from harassment and discrimination. We recognise that different people are oppressed in different ways and that some people face greater systematic oppressions such as our trans, queer and people of colour siblings. Let’s stand up for love, inclusion and respect in Norwich and smash hate and the heteropatriarchy.
