We Pledge To Not Forget
Blame, shame and silence are systemic.
Reporting To Remember is a collaborative research project documenting violence that has long been justified through a system that allows it. The project archives instances of shame as a tool to silence survivors of violence - Whatsapp videos, 'honour killings' / murder, suicides due to fear of being judged and shamed.
Reporting To Remember also archives instances of sexual and gender based violence, violence against women that is justified by persons in power. These instances live in our collective public memory.
Reporting To Remember, the trauma and fear of social stigma that has driven to commit suicide after sexual assault and rape.
Reporting To Remember, murder justified in the name of honour.
Reporting To Remember, says we pledge to not forget.
There is no excuse. No justification.
I Never Ask For It.
