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
