This Saturday (September 28) sees the first major right to abortion protest since abortion became legal in the south of Ireland. The march is about ensuring that, in the words of the official advertising for it, “no one gets left behind when it comes to reproductive health care.”
I urge blog readers planning to attend to march with the Éirígí contingent. Éirígí was extremely active in the referendum campaign, championing women’s right to choose. At the same time, Éirígí recognises the crucial links between women’s liberation, workers’ liberation and the national liberation of Ireland.
The Éirígí contingent will be gathering outside the Mandate Trade Union Office on Cavendish Row, next to the Garden of Remembrance, at 1.15pm. The march heads off at 2pm.
