Glasgow vigil on Friday
Jess McCabe // 11 June 2008
The Glasgow Feminist Network is holding a vigil this Friday, at 6pm in George Square:
The women of Glasgow – the women of the world – should not have to live in fear of men’s violence.
We will be holding a vigil in George Square, at 6pm this Friday the 13th, to commemorate the lives of Eleni, Moira, Michelle, Jeannette, and all the women we’ve lost.
This will be a peaceful vigil with singing, flowers and candles. It will be a time to grieve for the women we’ve lost – but also a time to stand up, be counted, and let everyone know we won’t stand for this anymore. Violence against women must stop, and until our society changes, more women will die needlessly at the hands of men everyday.
We must let the city know that the women of this city are not and will not be victims. We invite men to attend this vigil and be bold about their refusal to participate in a culture then denigrates, objectifies and, ultimitately, kills women.
Join us. Please forward this message, and invite your loved ones to attend with you.
In memory and in rage,
Glasgow Feminist Network
