//activists hold a vigil and demonstration along Queen West. (Canon 30D)

Someone asked me, after this weekend's food photos, not to post something that would make them want to go out and eat. This ought to do it.

This was the scene along Queen St near Dufferin last night as these women lay strewn on the sidewalks, covered in white sheets -- relaying their message with an artful, haunting and powerful demonstration.  My hands shook just trying to take these photos.  Their cause:  to raise awareness of a growing situation in Juarez and Chihuahua, Mexico, where violence against women has risen to absolutely brutal heights. 

I couldn't find detailed info about the Toronto action online, but here is a link to a general Call for Action in Boston on the same issue.
