Stop Rape Now: National day of action against rape culture
Recently, an organised criminal group called Roastbusters were exposed as a gang-rape organisation who targeted
intoxicated and underage girls, then publicly shamed them online.
The police knew about this group's action since 2011 but failed to stop them and claimed that they were powerless to act
because none of the girls who were raped are 'brave enough' to lay a formal complaint. It has since transpired that 4
complaints were ignored.
The Roastbusters fiasco is another explicit reminder that there are huge problems with the way our society addresses
sexual violence. We demand an end to rape and all forms of sexual violence. We demand that survivors of rape and sexual
violence are supported, and that those responsible for raping and sexually violating people stop their actions. We
demand that this extend to actions beyond examining the police force.
On Saturday 16th of November there will be a national day of action, calling for an end to Rape Culture and to stop
groups like Roastbusters from 'getting away with it'.
