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 are now claiming that they are powerless to act because none of the girls who were raped are 'brave enough' to lay a formal complaint.
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'.

NOTE: We do not think that physical violence towards rapists is an appropriate solution. Also, no abusive behaviour will be tolerated.
Please do not invite people who have been abusive in the past, as their presence at events can be triggering to survivors.
