March against gender-based & sexual violence: A purple wave has crossed Marigot!


About a hundred citizens responded to the call of the “NousToutesSXM” collective on Saturday, November 20 to say NO to violence in all its forms!

An inclusive, family and unifying walk

This peaceful march allowed the population to find themselves in a "safe space" where everyone was able to express their indignation at the omnipresence and trivialization of violence in the territory. The diversity among the demonstrators was a reflection of the diversity that symbolizes our island but above all of a common desire to live together free from violence.

Education, prevention, information

Through a circuit that traces the journey of the victims (when they dare to speak), the demonstrators met the associations that support them and discovered the devices made available to those who wish to be protected in situations of emergency to then rebuild. “The road to reconstruction is long, but we are becoming survivors! »Declares a protester during a powerful and emotional testimony.

Thanks everyone!

Thank you to the demonstrators, young and old, for their investment and their participation in the smooth running of the event.

The collective "NousToutes SXM" thanks the associations Trait d'Union, Le Manteau de St-Martin, the Red Cross and the Gendarmerie for their warm welcome and their commitment to the victims, as well as the Prefecture and the Gendarmerie services. which we were able to walk safely.

A big thank you to the WallArt SXM association and the artist Lily Hinckfoot @Lilysnotanartist for the colorful and committed fresco that immortalizes our message in the public space!

We also wish to thank the Safe SXM and Safe Haven associations on the Dutch side for their support for this march and to show our solidarity for their work on the other side of the border.

You too join the movement!

The “Nous Tous SXM” collective invites those who wish to join the collective to come and find out about the missions and the various lines of action in the region, date and place to be determined.
