On Wednesday 7th November, representatives of the White Ribbon Campaign, Chris Green and Joan Taylor, attended a parliamentary photo call in London. The event was attended by many Labour MPs including Harriet Harmon and Yvette Cooper. MPs gathered for a mass photo beneath the shadow of Big Ben, later there was a parade of individual photo's, pledge signing and interviews. Everybody to their credit, was very patient and allowed themselves to be "bossed" around by the WRC. The event was organised by Caroline Adams and went smoothly.
The WRC appreciates the MPs who gave there valuable time to take part in the photo call and looks forward to doing the same next year. We feel that the event was a huge success and will take the support we received and go forward with our campaign. We thank all who attended.
