One billion rising

connection to the world movement (Photographer: Georgio)14th February, Valentine's day, a celebration of love for all, one billion rising - an international movement to mobilize one billion men and women against the violence experienced by one billion women in their lifetime. Auroville took part in this world event. The idea was simple: men and women dancing together for one hour. The event was organized like a typical "bal la poussiere" bringing music and people to a field. Lots of speeches and coaching (maybe too much) but, finally, a bit of freedom for dancing.
