Dancers Rise in Nelson mall

Dressed in matching black and red, about 40 dancers gathered in the Chahko Mika Mall on Valentines Day for a flash mob to bring awareness to violence against women, as part of the global One Billion Rising movement. The group of mostly women, with a few children and men among them, danced for about 10 minutes before dispersing.
