Scores of young folks descended on the Arcata plaza Friday to sing, dance and take a stand condemning violence against women. The annual event came as a part of V-Day Humboldt's education efforts and conjunction with One Billion Rising Revolution, a global event that bills itself as the "biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history." Friday's event in Arcata featured drumming, dancing, music and poetry. Local photographer Manuel J. Orbegozo was there, and shared these photos.
