Another successful information stand at Boxhagenerplatz!!

In conjunction with the International Women's Day two days earlier and on behalf of the "Women Against Forced Evictions in Cambodia" campaign, our intrepid group members braved the blustery weather at the weekend market at Boxhagener Platz. Two shifts of two hours distributed flyers and post cards and collected almost 300 signatures (293 to be precise) for the petition which will be running until the 1st of July.

Our stand was set up on a rather quiet street corner opposite the main market and the majority of our outreach work was done by our members carrying clipboards and roaming between the bustling stalls on the other side of the street. As always the market provided a wide variety of interesting people to talk to and the number of signatures collected speaks for its self. Thank you one and all for the great effort.
