Scenes from today’s Women Rising rally in Dublin, arranged by Coalition to Repeal the 8th, taken by Mark Stedman.
The rally was organised to demand that the Irish Government take action to respect and protect women’s lives, health and choices. Supporters were encouraged to wear black and tweet their support using #Black4Repeal.
The rally is one of two Irish events that took place today as part of an international day of support for women in countries where abortion is banned or difficult to access. Some of the countries participating around the world include Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Poland, Chile, Argentina, Mexico and Italy.
