Speak Out - No To Harassment

This giant megaphone in Centenary Square was part of an event aimed at highlighting problems of verbal abuse and sexual intimidation in the city.  As well as this huge megaphone there was a demonstration of self defense techniques aimed at escaping an attack or abduction, and a large map where passers by could attach a marker at locations where they felt unsafe.  Volunteers were also on hand to show residents how to report incidents of harassment.  I'd just like to add that I don't think Bradford is any worse than other large UK cities for this kind of behaviour, but it's good to see people out on the street raising awareness of the situation.
