VANCOUVER - An all-day rally against the Missing Women Inquiry occupied the intersection of Georgia and Granville  - one day before the annual Women's Memorial March. A circle of more than 100 people held quilt pieces bearing the names of missing and murdered women in BC.

Memorial March organizer Marlene George told the crowd “we are boycotting this sham inquiry because we have been shut out from it and it has continued to marginalize the voices and experiences of women from the Downtown Eastside. Women continue to go missing or be murdered with no action from any level of government to address these tragedies or gendered violence, poverty, racism, or colonialism.”

The annual Women’s Memorial March starts tomorrow outside the Carnegie Community Centre at Main and Hastings at 1pm. Solidarity marches are also planned in cities around the province and across the country.
