Vancouver Women in Black Vigils 

Vancouver Women in Black stand in vigil the fourth Monday of each month, Robson St. side of the VAG from 5-6pm. All are welcome (men too!); please wear as much black as you can. Women in Black calls for

  • An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and a just peace for all peoples in the region.
  • An end to all human rights abuses in the occupied territories
