A protest against abuse on women is planned to take place next Sunday 29th of January, beginning at 1pm at Triton Fountain, Valletta.
Organised by organisation Kaizen, which means ‘good change’ or ‘continuous improvement’ in Japanese, the event is a silent march which will have several demands concerning abuse on women.
Kaizen is calling for the setting up of more street lights and cameras on roads to ensure the safety of commuters as well as increasing more police patrols in areas other than Paceville.
The organisation is also calling for the correct training to take place for police officers to be able to deal with reports of rape, assault and abuse in a professional manner. Last but not least, Kaizen is calling for a thorough follow-up on ex-convicts of drugs, alcohol and psychological cases.
The team behind Kaizen consists of Paula Mendes, a sales executive from Portugal who is also enrolled for a masters in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Malta.
Virginie Cielen is the second brains behind the operation. Hailing from Brussels, Belgium, she works as an FA for a private jets company and is enrolled in online courses for event management.
