Sabina Nessa vigil: Enough is enough - end violence against women

Six months and here we are again, remembering another woman murdered. That was one of the big emotions on the vigil for Sabina Nessa near her home in Kidbrooke, south London.

The Socialist Party leaflet read: 'Enough is enough - end violence against women'. Many people wanted our leaflets, and some requested posters saying they would put them in their windows.

Women face violence at alarming levels, both inside and outside the home, in education, and at work. Although, this time, we didn't face the same violence from police which we saw at the vigils and protests for Sarah Everard.

Many will ask, what has actually been done to oppose violence against women? Local authorities continue to cut refuges services, turn off street lighting and let women live in violent homes.

The Tories are removing the £20-a-week Universal Credit increase which will leave many women out of pocket. One of the speakers linked the cuts to services women rely on and inequality in society with the demand to end to violence against women.

The anger and grief was palpable. Let's use it to build a movement to challenge and end all violence against women, and fight for a real alternative to the vicious sexist and oppressive system of capitalism.

Helen Pattison, London Socialist Party regional secretary

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
