Following the very sad news of the death of Esther Hartsilver, 32, whilst riding her bike on Thursday 28th May 2015, there will be a Vigil and Die-In on MONDAY 8th June, meeting from 6pm for 6.30pm at Camberwell Green, Southwark, London which is near to where she was killed.

We ask as many of you as possible to attend and to remember her, and reiterate the need for space and decent infrastructure for people that choose to cycle.

Please would you share this information as much as possible?

If anyone knew the victim, and would like to take part in the vigil, you would be more than welcome. We would read out any message / statements on your behalf. But we also respect the privacy of family and friends if they do not wish to take part.

Report from The Independent:

“A 32-year-old woman has become the sixth cyclist to die in London this year after a crash with a lorry. She was riding through Camberwell, south London, during Thursday morning’s rush hour when her bike collided with a Co-operative lorry near a junction.”
