6th February: Vigil and fundraiser for Akis Kollaros

A vigil and ‘die-in’ for Akis Kollaros will take place this coming Monday 9th February at 6pm for 6:30pm, at the junction of Homerton High Street and Wardle Street, next to Homerton Fire Station, E9 6DL, where he died last Monday. The event is being organised by Stop The Killing, which last year organised events including the National Funeral for the Unknown Victim of Traffic Violence, and two weeks ago called a well-attended vigil and ‘die-in’ at the junction of Seven Sisters Road where Stephanie Turner was fatally injured.

Meanwhile funds are being raised to repatriate Akis’s body to his family in Greece. More than £6000 has been raised at the time of writing.
