Stella Creasy’s Jukebox (for One Billion Rising) – with apologies to Coldplay…

12th February, 2013 10:09 am

One Billion Rising is an international coalition of campaigners speaking out for action to tackle violence against girls and women across the world. As part of celebrating the 15th Anniversary of V-Day on 14 February 2013, through combining creativity with campaigning, it is generating what some are calling a ‘feminist tsunami’. From Norwich to Peru, through Bute, Manila and Luxembourg via San Fransisco and Nigeria, activists are organising flashmobs, performances and seeking policy changes that speak to our simple message. To date over 13,000 organisations are now involved in planning events for the 14th February in nearly 190 countries. In the UK on Thursday 14th February there will be over 160 local events as well as a series of campaign actions in London itself. To see the full list please visit the www.onebillionrising.org website.

To mark this, LabourList’s reigning MP of the year (and noted Indie fan) Stella Creasy has recorded the following Indie themed video to draw attention to One Billion Rising – with apologies to Coldplay…:
