The vigil will take place outside the Japanese embassy 101-104 Piccadilly, London W1J 7JT. Starting at 4pn on the 4th August
This vigil has been organised by Eleanor Lisney and Dennis Queen, who have created a facebook event page, which says
“We will mourn for our disabled brothers and sisters murdered at Sagamihara for being disabled. I suggest that we mourn respectfully for their deaths – we can raise questions on their incarceration elsewhere but we want to deliver our condolences so that we show we care about our disabled brothers and sisters. They do not deserve to die in silence. We do not stereotype and blame Eastern or Japanese culture. eugenics is not a Eastern practice. #disabilitysolidarity #disablistviolence”
