(en) wsm.ie: 6th March for Choice 30 Sept - march with the anarchist bloc
Sun, 8 Oct 2017 10:06:28 +0300
The 6th annual March for Choice takes place September 30th in Dublin and once more we are
bringing together an anarchist bloc for the march - join us on the day. ---- It's going to
be an important march as the government have promised a referendum next year but have not
yet announced a date or indeed what we will actually be allowed to vote on. There is a
real danger that rather than a vote to delete the 8th Amendment they will seek to replace
it with text that would still seek to deny bodily autonomy and allow abortion access in
very restricted circumstances. Some 12 people a day are forced to travel to access
abortion and more use pills at home under the theoretical threat of a 14 year jail term,
the danger is that many of these people would still be unable to access abortion and
pregnant people would continue to find the 8th amendment denied them control in their own
We will be meeting up at the march start point at 1.30 at Parnell SQ, just look out for
the Red & Black flags. Before this 13.00 we are having a meetup in our center at Jigsaw
which is nearby at 10 Belvedere Court (the red X above and to the right of Start Route One
on the map below), before heading down together. If you are on Facebook join our
Anarchists on the 2017 March for Choice event and help us build by asking your friends at
The March is bring organised by the Abortion Rights Campaign who say
"The theme of our March this year is Time to Act!
The Citizens' Assembly report shows us the Irish people are pro-choice. We are ready for
The movement to repeal the 8th Amendment from the Irish constitution has gone from
strength to strength. In March, Strike4Repeal saw thousands of people occupy O'Connell
Bridge, and march on the Dail in the evening, with countless more on the streets in cities
around Ireland and abroad, showing that the issue of abortion rights is not going away.
This year we have learned of young children sectioned under the Mental Health Act for
seeking abortions, of suicidal women denied access to the abortion they're entitled to
under the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act because their doctor doesn't think
they're "suicidal enough".
Meanwhile in Northern Ireland women continue to be prosecuted for procuring their own
abortions, even though the push to decriminalise abortion is growing in the rest of the UK.
We need full repeal of the 8th Amendment in the Republic of Ireland, and proper
legislation in Northern Ireland. We need access to free, safe and legal abortion for all
who need or want it. And we need it now.
We have waited too long. We have been patient for too long. We are tired of waiting.
We need to act. Our government needs to act. And YOU need to act!
Join us on September 30th to make your pro-choice voice heard, this is your last chance
before a referendum is called.
It's Repeal O'Clock. It's Time to Act!"
