Thursday – March for Repeal on International Women’s Day

March for Repeal on International Women’s Day
Hosted by the Galway Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment
Thursday, March 8 @ 6pm
Eyre Square

The Galway Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment and their member organisations invite you to our International Women’s Day March For Repeal in Galway.

Assemble from 6pm in Eyre Square for a number of speeches along with artistic support by AnnMarie Hynes.

The march through the streets will end up at the Magdalene memorial on Forster Street.

On the same day the referendum bill will be debated in the Dáil, 100 years ago women won their right to vote.

Now we demand our right to make informed decisions on our healthcare when pregnant – and also during childbirth – and to be able access the services and supports we need to do that here in Ireland. For this to happen we need to Repeal the Eighth Amendment.

All are welcome and necessary.

Please come along, bring placards and banners, instruments and costumes.

If you can wear a sash with ‘REPEAL’ on it all the better.

Together we can help make history!

Marches for Repeal will be taking place in a number of locations throughout Ireland on this date.
