Australian residents of Perth, and rape survivor advocacy group ROAR (Rock Out Against Rape) are planning to protests the courts recent decisions regarding three men accused of gang raping a teenager. All of the men were released on bail, and charges against one of the men have already been dropped. Perth residents believe that the charges against the remaining men are likely to be dropped tomorrow.
According to ROAR not only is rape one of the most underreported violent crimes, but when reported the survivor is unlikely to achieve justice. Roar also says that the Perth courts common dismissals of rape allegations are likely to discourage women from reporting sexual violence.
