After the huge turnout last night for the Savita Halappavanar protest, FeministEvents is organising another rally on Saturday, to remember Savita and show support her family. We also want to demonstrate the depth of support for a change to Irish law and all laws which restrict a woman's right to choose. The protest is again in solidarity with the Irish Pro-Choice Campaign and the women of Ireland who are denied their human rights to decide their own fates and end their pregnancies of their own free choosing. We must support abortion rights in Ireland, and protesting in London will help support movements across Ireland and help to raise money for vital organisations like Abortion Support Network, which helps to fund Irish women travelling to the UK for abortions.
Date: Saturday 17th November
Location: Outside the Irish Embassy
Would you like to be involved in the protest? Would you like to speak briefly about how Savita’s case has affected you? Can you tell us what we can do to help change the law in Ireland? We are particularly keen to hear from Irish women who can tell us what it's like to be a woman living under such restrictive anti-choice laws. If you would like to be involved, please email email@example.com - anyone is welcome to speak up on the day as well, even if you've never spoken at a protest before, feel free to join us!
More information and links to follow, but please, send the message out: this is a vigil for Savita, so please come along to remember a young women, killed by anti-abortion law. We can and must work to prevent this from happening again.
