Short speech at 2pm to start the walk
Meeting Place: Grosvenor Square Garden, Grosvenor Square, London
Travel:nearest tube is Bond Street (7 minute walk) or Marble Arch (10 min walk)
This is a remembrance walk and we will be walking to represent the number of women killed in one year in the UK. I will have a Red Rain Poncho for each woman representing a murdered woman and a candle bearing a name – The candles will have their wicks cut off to comply with Health & Safety rules and will remain UNLIT at all times.
The Ponchos are one-size so you will be able to dress according to the weather – If you could wear black from the waist down that would help to get the visual look I am hoping to achieve – a line of red and black. If you have a red coat do wear it! The walk is 1.6 miles and we will be walking in silence at a slow pace to arrive at Downing Street for approximately 3pm. Please do not bring whistles etc.. Sadly they won’t let us all in! Six people will deliver a list of names to 10 Downing Street and that will be the end of the march. We should be finished by 3.30 – 4pm at the latest.
