Photos by London photographer Elainea Emmott
On the 4th of June, at the Peace Pagoda in Battersea Park, London UK, the Women´s March on London held a vigil for the victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks. We asked women of all and no faiths to join together to call for equality, dignity, and peace; to reject violence in all forms and to choose love. Always love.
“London is being hit terribly right now – even today [June 19, 2017] such awful news about the van killing people just leaving the mosque at Seven Sisters, Finsbury.
The Pagoda Park Peace Protest showed real and true grief with different communities uniting together. The female Muslim community just wanted to show the world that they abhor the violence and were passionate about compassion and kindness to all.
I was just there with my camera. It was the least I could do,” wrote Emmott.
