The 2017 campaign was a huge success!
Culminating in 4 days of global action from 22-25 September, it demonstrated the power of ordinary citizens uniting across borders and speaking as one.
232 events were held in 65 countries, with over 46,000 attendees, and an online reach of more than 7.5 million.
Silent protests were organised from Indonesia to Macedonia, the hashtag #TogetherWeSpeak was the trend from the Netherlands to Uganda, and songs of freedom and resistance rang out from Tunisia to Venezuela.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the campaign in 2017!
