What is this about?
Following the very sad news of the death of Moira Gemmill riding her bike today, Thursday 9th April 2015, there will be a Vigil and Die-In on MONDAY 20th April, meeting from 6pm for 6.30pm on Lambeth Bridge where she was killed
We ask as many of you as possible to attend and to remember her, as well as highlighting for the third time in just a few weeks, the need for space and decent infrastructure for people that choose to cycle.
Please would you share this information as much as possible?
If anyone knew the victim, and would like to take part in the vigil, you would be more than welcome. We would read out any message / statements on your behalf. But we also respect the privacy of family and friends if they do not wish to take part.
Report from London Evening Standard:
“London arts visionary Moira Gemmill killed by lorry while cycling near Lambeth Bridge; Designer, 55, was a major figure in the London arts world and was hand-picked by the Queen to oversee renovations at Windsor Castle”
