Vigil protest was held on Saturday 5th Jan 2013 ,organized by women wing of Labour party Eailing gather at the town hall southall, London, in memory of the victim of the Delhi
gang-rape, 'Damini'. The incident has sparked protests and
debate around the world about the place of women in Indian society.
A gathering of community women was to honour and pay our respects to an amazing young woman who endured an horrific attack in Delhi and sadly passed away
The attack has sparked two weeks of protests about gender attitudes in India, and calls for changes to laws regarding rape and violence against women. Conversations that were once taboo are now taking place across the globe.
Addressing the vigil protest the speakers emphasis that We need to show our support at this crucial time of transition in India and ensure a healthy outcome, so that something positive may come of something so unthinkably horrific. It is important to remember that whilst the eyes of the world are fixed on this particular case in India; atrocities against women happen across the world and indeed right here in our back yards. We must continue to raise awareness and educate our families and community on the struggle for equality and the rights of women.
This was a peaceful informal candlelit vigil, represented by the all faiths and communities.
