From the rabble blog detailing the events:
The event began with a private ceremony at the Carnegie Centre, at Main and Hastings, for family members of murdered or missing women. It was followed by a march of hundereds of people, through the streets and alley's of the Downtown Eastside, lead by elders, to remember the places where some of the missing women were known to frequent.
At one point participants drew their gaze away from the quilts that were being held in memory to the missing women, to sky above, where eagles soared, to beat of drums.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
