About Women in Black London Vigils:
 
The London vigil is part of the Women in Black (WiB) world-wide network of women. They are committed to peace with justice and actively opposed to injustice, war, militarism and other forms of violence. They hold a vigil every week in silence and wearing black. Each vigil has a specific theme, which is reflected in the placards they carry and the leaflets they hand out. Each week they have a letter which they ask members of the public to sign, which calls on the British government to take action on a specific issue. Vigils are for women only, and present a women's or gendered position on each issue.
