7/7 Anniversary Memorial Service.

I recieved this information from Mark one of the blog readers. I am afraid that I won't be able to go this time, as I will be at a private ceremony with my fellow passengers in Kings Cross United and some of the LU staff and first responders. Hiding from the media, standing shoulder to shoulder, remembering our fellow passengers who did not finish their journey, and those who were hurt. All those whose lives were changed by an act of cruelty on July 7th, six months ago.

Good luck with the ceremony, I hope it goes well and thank you for remembering too. I will try and come to the next one, if this becomes a regular monthly thing.

Please come and join us for a 7/7 Anniversary Memorial Service. This Saturday 7th January 2006, 3pm at the Cenotaph, Whitehall, Westminster.

This Saturday at 3pm there will be held an informal ceremony at the Cenotaph, near Downing Street on Whitehall for the half-year anniversary of the London bombings.

In remembrance of past, present and future acts of war, terror and aggression against people everywhere, we will share silent and spoken prayers for the coming year. And in solidarity with Maya Evans*, there will also be a public bell ringing and a reading of the names of all those who died on the London transport system on 7th July 2005.

* The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 [also known as SOCPA] makes it a criminal offence to demonstrate without police control within 1km of Westminster. On 9th December 2005 Maya became the first person to be convicted under this awful legislation. She and the writer Milan Rai were arrested for ringing bells and reading aloud the names of Iraq war victims immediately outside Downing Street.
