Last Night In Brussels


A vigil for Savita Halappanavar outside the Irish Embassy in Brussels, Belgium.

All in all, we reckon there were a little over 150 there by the end (lots of latecomers). I would say a little over half of them were Irish people living in Brussels. We had speeches from the President of the European Women’s Lobby, a message from Paul Murphy MEP (who was in Strasbourg), Anja Deschoemacker, from the Belgian socialist party called LSP/PSL, and – most importantly – various women from Ireland who spoke of their sadness, anger and frustration with what’s been happening back home.
