Vigils for Victims of Recent Terrorist Incidents
A number of vigils are being held across the city to remember those killed or injured in the attacks on the two mosques in New Zealand and in the incident on Sunday in Stanwell, Surrey. It is also an opportunity to remember all those killed or injured elsewhere in the world in similar violence.
Everyone is invited and welcome to join the vigils.
Wednesday 20 March 2019 - 6pm to 7pm
Vigil at Hove Methodist Church, Portland Road, Hove
The city’s Interfaith Contact Group invites all communities to join a peace vigil, to demonstrate our shared belief that attacks of terror will not be tolerated in our city, and beyond. All are invited to come together and show our support and unity with the Muslim community.
Thursday 21 March 2019 - 4.30pm
One Voice vigil outside Hove Town Hall
All are welcome to join One Voice’s vigil to remember all those killed or injured in Christchurch last Friday, Stanwell over the weekend and elsewhere in the world in acts of similar violence.
Our local Imams, executive committee members on the city’s Racial Harassment Forum and local community leaders will be speaking briefly. We will also observe a minute’s silence. Please join One Voice to stand together in solidarity and send a clear message that we do not condone violence against innocent people and counter the threat from far right as well as all other forms of terrorism.
