Pulling together to stop the growing number of violence with their voices and skills.
It has no name. No face. No public relations statement. This is the current movement sweeping across the city in the aim of urging members of the public to speak up and speak out the growing violence in Namibia.
Speaking to unwrap.online, Che Ulenga says she is moved by the state of violence in our country and she believed she needed to say something because people, especially peers, act like they can’t see anything.
“It’s a Ghost Protest. it has no face. No name. Maybe it’s the Ghosts of Women who died from the gruesome violence whose voices are talking. If you are moved, speak up and speak out in this Ghost way,” says Che Ulenga.
The protest will see a lot of people speaking out today however it is an unending campaign that will continue until the voices of victims and those affected are heard. In a message going around, members of the public are encouraged to spray, paint or draw antiviolence slogans in red on regular cardboard which are to be placed on street corners. The posters can be moved from corner to corner and once people feel they have done their part, the posters can be removed.
Imagination Studio who shot the campaign video shared the content on their social media saying that today marks the beginning of a protest against sexual violence and human rights violations.
