  1. Dear Blank Noisers,
    I am a mexican woman, and living in Mexico City strikes me as very similar to your situation. We have a very good share of eve-teasers, and some of us are getting very tired about it. I love the the actions you take on streets, I find them to be very inspiring. I admire your courage, and I will try to stage some kind of protest just like those you have.
    Thank you very much for the inspiration, and know that you have a fellow blanknoiser far away geographically but very close at heart.
    Again, thanks for your courage and your example, and I wish you the greatest success in this upcoming action.
    Alejandra.

    Hi,
    Have been trying to attend your meetings in Bombay, but both times; once at Jogger's park and today on Carter Road, we couldn't find any groups together. Were these meetings called off, or do we need to check our blind spots?
    Do let me know. Thanks!

  4. hi anon.reports say that the group waited a very long time for others to show up. we had sent out a request for mobile phone numbers of those who had confirmed - that would have made it easier. really regret that you missed both todays and the joggers park picnic. hope to see you soon. please email us

  5. the meetings were not called off sadly we're not allowed to put up signs indicating the exact location both inside and outside a venue (we tried this at Joggers)but as BN said we wait for others to show up and enough planning goes into getting ppl to the venue either contacting them through e-mail or FB events. Would help if you give your phone number to Blank Noise
