Women In Black is an international women’s peace network which was started by Israeli and Palestinian women in 1988, and has spread to many countries. We are silent because mere words cannot express the tragedy that wars and hatred bring.
Our silence is visible. We invite women to stand with us. We wear black as a symbol of sorrow for all victims of war, for the destruction of people, nature and the fabric of life.
For over 14 years, Armidale Women in Black have gathered outside the Courthouse on the last Saturday of the month at 10.30am for a silent half-hour, to mourn the victims of violence around the world, and to protest at the expanding use of military action.
We invite all women to join our vigils
Last Saturday of every month, 10.30am to 11am
Outside the Courthouse in the Mall
