December 6,1989, 14 women were murdered at l'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal simply because they were women. December 6th is recognized as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. The Purple Ribbon Campaign promotes awareness about the prevention of violence against women and also honours the memory of women who have been abused or who have died due to a violent situation. Take a moment to remember these women.

There is a purple Christmas tree in the hallway between Sobeys and the mall in Clarenville to honor all of these women.

Also schools in our region will be having a moment of silence and showing a clip on what had happened that day to all of those women.
