NNA - Sit in before ESCWA to approve law protecting women from domestic violence, April 1, 2014

The campaign for approving the law that protects women from domestic violence staged a sit-in, upon the call of "KAFA" association and in conjunction with the plenary parliament session, at Khalil Gibran Garden facing the ESCWA building, under the slogan "from the street to the legislator; pass the law to protect women from domestic violence."

People participating in the sit-in called on Deputies to approve this law before asking for votes in their favor in the elections.
Protestors carried pictures of women victims of domestic violence.

The sit-in will last until MPs discuss the ninth item on the law to protect women from domestic violence. A statement will then be issued by the protesters, according to the decision of the House of Representatives.
