Going back to Ireland for Xmas?
The newly formed London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign, the UK-based branch of the Irish movement to make abortion free, safe and legal, is launching a mass social media ‘check-in’ for Irish expats going home for Christmas.
We want those heading back to Ireland for the festive season to show support for women travelling in the other direction, by ‘checking in’ at ferry and airports and using the hashtag #choice4xmas.
The #choice4xmas campaign will run from December 16th. We’re asking ex-pats to check-in on social media at airports and ferry ports, with the suggested text:
“Travelling home to Ireland & thinking of the 11 women a day who travel to Britain for an abortion #choice4xmas #repealthe8th #Extend1967Act”.
Those who aren’t travelling can share and like our content to show their support.
London-Irish ARC’s next open meeting takes place at 18:30 on February 1 at Queen Mary’s University. Those interested in attending can book a place here.
