About 50 people took part last night in a silent march around George Town, to honour those affected by domestic abuse.
Attendees held pink and red silhouettes.
The red ones represented those who were victims of abuse, the pink ones signifying those who died due to domestic violence.
The R-C-I-P-S says reported domestic violence cases during the first half of this year are up about 30 percent over last year, though it’s not clear if that means more instances of abuse, or more instances of *reporting abuse.
“There was a thing of the past where you were sort of shunned away if you spoke out or if you were being abused but now people are standing and going to different groups and organizations and asking for help, so I think that more people are standing up against the domestic abuse,” Silent March Chairwoman, Cheryl Myles.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse or want to help someone else in trouble, you can reach the Cayman Islands crisis center on 949-2422.
