A candlelit vigil is to be held at the Old Steine Fountain in Brighton on Friday 28th October as the local community unites on the International Day against Hate Crime. The second event was marked last year in the city by 200 people meeting at Old Steine to ‘express their concern and anger and to commemorate those who had been victims of hate crime’.
This year’s event will be held on Friday 28th October from 7pm – 9pm with a two minute silence being observed at 8pm along with the other vigils being held around the world. Following the horrific murder of Stuart Walker in Scotland last weekend this is still a vital issue that we need to challenge and draw attention to, so please come along and/or forward this post to everyone you know, post the flyer and info on Facebook, Twitter the event and host it on your websites.
The theme for this year is ‘Hope and Remembrance’ and the vigil will include speakers from across the cities communities. All are welcome
