In response the sort fall in funding to Wellington Rape Crisis last year and the Roastbusters' case, we decided to express our rage at the Rape Culture that is insipid in our society, that harms high numbers of woman (cis and trans) every single day, and also, most importantly to send a message of support and love to rape survivors.
This is an on-going project, where a series of buntings will be put up in Wellington City. We also want to place a call out for other craftivists and sewers across the country and around the world to make buntings to create an alternative form of media, to counter a world filled with messages and images that support and add to rape culture. Send pictures of your buttings or send us a bunting to put up for you, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Valentine's Day Bunting
Valentine's is meant to be a celebration of love, however like other holiday festivals this sees the incident of rape rise.
Remember consent is not just about your partner saying yes,or bullying them till they do. Consent it's an ongoing process when engaging with others sexually. So remember to: ASK, LISTEN AND RESPECT your partners this Valentine's Day and everyday.
We had to replace the original Valentine's string as someone stole it, we suspect for a free Valentine's present.
