We observe a moment of silence to honour those who have led lives of service; those who have stood up for social and economic justice, have sacrificed so that we may be here, have confronted and dismantled oppressive practices and institutions and have built affirming and equitable examples to inspire us all.
You who stood against economic exploitation, homophobia, racism, gender discrimination, religious bigotry and other oppressive forces; we stand on your sturdy, courageous shoulders.
We thank you. We honour you.
