The parade was held along Thalang Rd and culminated with public awareness event at Queen Sirikit Park led by Phuket Vice Governor Prakob Wongmaneerung.

The event was held in conjunction with the United Nations ‘International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women’, observed annually on Nov 25.

The aim of the campaign is for all people to realise the importance of protection of women, children and family members from all forms of violence.

Of the more-than-100 people who joined to support the event yesterday, many carried placards calling to stop violence against women and children, and even to stop hate speech against women.

White ribbons, the international campaign symbol for the prevention of violence against children and women, were handed out as part of the event.

Generalizing again? Do you know all the monks here ? BTW,posting the same comment twice doesn't make it more accurate.

....You of all know that they not do anything it does not benefit them. You know that there are NOT real monks in Phuket, only money and more money greedy monks.

Dek, why shouldn't they, or do you support the violent assaults on women.

....why should buddhist monks not? Perhaps to express/carry out the thinking of Lord Buddha in this matter? How about that?

DeKaaskopp | 26 November 2018 - 17:36:57

K,why should they? 

Nasa12 | 26 November 2018 - 13:29:48

Maybe #MeToo campaign it`s coming to Thailand soon.

Phuket has many buddhist monks. I not see any monk joining the campaign to walk with, and support the people.  Why?
