Sunday December 3rd

A vigil organised by Together for Humanity, a coalition of charities, community organisations and faith groups, will take place on Sunday 3 December, at 3pm, Richmond Terrace, opposite Downing Street.

This “Building Bridges” vigil is to honour the memory of the victims of the attack on the Israeli civilian population on October 7, and of Israel's ensuing military campaign in the Gaza Strip, leading to suffering and loss of life among Palestinian civilians. The organizers hope to mobilise the public to stand up to rising antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred.
