Activities in El Negaa Stadium in El Fasher (North Darfur) to launch the 2010 Commemoration of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. The year’s theme for Darfur is “Together for the Protection of Women from Violence”. The event started with a march of solidarity, from the School of Midwives to the Stadium, and was joined by women and men from communities and IDP camps as well as representatives from state government institutions, civil society, medical institutions, traditional and religious leaders, school children, and GoS police and military together with UNAMID staff and contingents.
