Eurydice Dixon vigil to be held in Brisbane
A SILENT vigil will be held in Brisbane, just days after thousands turned our to remember the aspiring comedian Eurydice Dixon in Melbourne following her brutal rape and murder.
In a Facebook post, organiser Yolanda Robson said a local event was necessary to highlight the point that "every person should be free to walk home from work, whenever, wherever."
"We are saddened and horrified to hear about the rape and murder of Eurydice Dixon in Princes Park Melbourne," Ms Robson wrote.
"This vigil will honour a young woman who was vibrant, kind, funny and committed to women's rights - a daughter, a sister, a friend.
"The vigil is a place for reflection: we want to create a space of quiet resistance.
"This vigil is not about the murders of people from other groups, this vigil is about Eurydice Dixon."
The vigil will be held at Speakers Corner, between Parliament House and the City Botanic Gardens in the Brisbane CBD, from 5.30pm on Thursday.
