Sydney No More Rally: Abbie Chatfield joins protest of Violence Against Women, Domestic violence

Abbie Chatfield is among thousands who marched in rallies across the country to protest gender based violence, after an alarming spike in women who were allegedly murdered this year.

“No More: National Rally Against Gender Based Violence” rallies are taking place in Sydney, Hobart and Adelaide on Saturday afternoon, with 12 more scheduled to go ahead in other capital cities and regional towns on Sunday.

Chatfield, who is a vocal advocate of women’s rights, attended the rally with friends Kath Ebbs and one-half of Peking Duk duo Adam Hyde.

She shared a series of snaps to her Instagram story of the powerfully-worded posters carried by rally attendees.

“Dear not all men … Where the bloody HELL ARE YOU?” one poster read.

Large crowds of protesters in Sydney arrived at Belmore Park at about 1pm on Saturday afternoon and could be seen holding signs stating “sick of inaction,” “tax the billionaires, fund sexual violence response and prevention,” “how many of us have to die?” “it’s not all men but it’s always men,” and “32, too many! Enough!.”

The crowd is expected to march towards Hyde Park.

The rallies, organised by advocacy group What Were You Wearing also took place in Newcastle and Ballarat on Friday.

More are scheduled to take place in Melbourne, Perth, Bendigo, the Sunshine Coast, Geelong, Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Gold Coast, Orange, Wagga Wagga and Combram on Sunday.
