TAKE A STAND AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Violence is happening everywhere, but so many of us are constantly ignoring it ...

It is our responsability to speak up if we want to put an end to domestic violence.

Students at IES Joaquín Rodrigo in Vicálvaro (Madrid) took a stand against toxic, violent relationships last week and created their own media campaign with an excellent video clip called "Ana and the earphones" that we show here.

TIME TO TAKE THOSE EARPHONES OFF!
