Worcestershire's MPs back 16 Days of Action
7:40am Friday 14th December 2012 in Local
WORCESTERSHIRE'S MPs have shown their support for 16 Days of Action.
16 Days of Action is an international campaign to raise awareness of violence against women.
The campaign was launched globally on White Ribbon Day on November 25, which is also known as the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It ran until Monday, December 10, which is International Human Rights Day.
The MPs, including Redditch's Karen Lumley, Bromsgrove's Sajid Javid and Droitwich's Peter Luff, put their handprints on, and signed, a banner bearing the words: 'I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about domestic abuse or sexual violence'.
