UK women took to the streets in the name of Sarah Everard this weekend. A nation has been captured by the recent loss of Sarah Everard, 33 who disappeared when walking home in London, and a serving police officer has been charged with her kidnap and murder. 

Solemn silence was held at vigils across the UK on Saturday evening, as women attended to pay their respects, support one another and send a message to government officials. But scenes from Clapham Common show a very different reality as London Metropolitan Police force used brutal force, pushing crowds and arresting women in attendance. 

Coming under further strain, thousands took to the streets on Sunday in protest. Demonstrating both the treatment of Sarah Everard, and of those from the vigils the capital saw crowds pass through the streets. Signs raised high with slogans including “We Will Not Be Silenced” and “Police are Perpetrators Not Protectors” the protests called for police reform and a change in behavior toward women.

Women’s marches too took place in Canberra and across Australia on Monday as Australian Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese and fellow Labor MPs attended the March 4 Justice. Raising awareness of sexual harassment against women in government and workplaces, cities turned out in support to demand change.

In the US, Californian police and residents released doves signifying the past, the present and the brighter future as community members gathered to remember loved ones who have passed since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic at the opening of the Menifee Coronavirus Memorial and Peace Garden, Central Park, Menifee on Saturday.

Beijing was enveloped in yellow dust on Monday morning with visibility at less than 1 km, as the city’s meteorological department issued a yellow warning for sandstorms, the third-most hazardous level. As skies turned orange, sandstorm and pollution sent air quality readings off the scale.

And Pope Francis held a mass to mark 500 years of christianity in the Philippines at the Vatican this Sunday.
