The Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment announce the creation of a series of beautiful, hand-painted, stitched and embroidered banners, which will be carried in procession at the upcoming March for Choice on September 30th in Dublin.
The banners are inspired by the Suffragette, Labour, Sodality and Guild groups and all those who have sought social change through cultural means.
…The Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment was founded in 2015 by Cecily Brennan, Eithne Jordan, Alice Maher and Paula Meehan. To date, 3,000 of Ireland’s artists, musicians, actors, dancers, writer and poets, have signed up to the campaign.
Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the 8th
March for Choice (September 30, 2017)
Via the Arbortiion Rights Campaign (ARC):
It’s Time to Act. We have waited too long. We have been patient for too long. We are tired of waiting. We need to act. Our government needs to act.
And YOU need to act! Join us at 6th Annual March for Choice (September 30) to make your pro-choice voice heard, this is your last chance before a referendum is called.
A touch of the orange order about that. I’m pro choice.
Bit of a reductive comment, so. I like Fry’s Chocolate Creams.
You see, some comments get deleted if you don’t declare for the right side. Just a tip.
And the banner in the above picture looks like a banner used by the orange order, who are mainly seen parading in Northern Ireland.
My comment was eluding to this fact.
We don’t normally see banners like this in this context. I was just stating that it looks like an orange order banner, on account of the fact that it looks like an orange order banner.
I’m still pro choice.
Doubt that somehow. I saw a squirrel one time.
I’m pro choice.
You’re the top! You’re the Colosseum,
You’re the top! You’re the Louvre Museum,
You’re a melody from a symphony by Strauss,
You’re a Bendel bonnet, a Shakespeart sonnet,
You’re Mickey Mouse.
You’ve never been on a Corpus Christi march! I’m
Brian and so is my wifepro choice
Corporal Christy strolls don’t make the news. Hence my orange order reference. More frames of reference makes this place more inclusive and welcoming to new people.
4 Zuppy cmments deleted in two days.
Broadsheet is running scared that the truth will interfere with their donkly woo woo agenda.
Where’s Wizzle Poo Poo? Has Diddles signed off on this new policy of censorship?
Where are the guidelines for posting comments?
My thanks once again to your sterling moderators, BS ;-)
Why Sheis? You afraid of some truth?
You’re so special Daisy. Nobody would ever interfere with your right to spin falsehoods in the name of blibby bee-bobs.
The truth in defence of innocent babies, however, must be pooty tootled.
Pooty tootle to you too, sweetie.
Zuppy, Broadsheet is part of the Facist Leftist Alliance who’ve been inflitrating organisations at all levels of society since their Extraordinary Meeting of 2008 after one of their elders, a Barack Hussein Obama, was elected to the office of American president. They are deleting your comments as part of a slow and subtle strategy to oppress all dissenting opinion. Phase two is going to be a lot more scary though. They’re coming for you, Zupp. We need heroes like you though so please, stay safe.
“They’re coming for you, Zupp.”
Hopefully they won’t be able to break into his secret underground bunker…AKA (his mammies basement)
Nicely done Bodger, its as annoying as fupp when you’re on the receiving end but when it happens to someone else it’s very entertaining.
Now Snowflake’s comment is gone. Does anybody in Broadsheet know what they’re doing anymore? (Apart from sminky pinkie poo pah pay, of course)
my comment :(
I don’t approve of these ladies and their campaign nor the mods here
HAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAHAHAHA :-D
I REALLY want to know who the mysterious DIDDLES is!
We could tell you, but then we’d have to kill you….just sayin like.
Jayyys… get this on and over with already. Is everyone going to insist on making their own video? And a banner? And tell their own story? And march? And tweet?
pooty tootle alert Everyone!
Yes because, funnily enough, each woman or girl’s story is different when it comes to our bodily autonomy and our right to choose what happens to our own bodies. We’re not a homogenous lump.
Yes and they’re going to force you to take interest because everything is about you. Even when something has nothing to do with you, you are entitled to complain in public about how much it annoys you because you are the most important person in the world and everyone should know how little you like stuff.
Hahahah so true
Aren’t you the lovely pro-choice gang! Making friends and changing minds. More like pushing their way to the top of the queue to get noticed. And artists? Is this the only way they have to get “their work” viewed? Shouldn’t they be campaigning for some extra Cnuas or Waking the Feminists? Cos that really worked! Go Art!
The women on the right is Alice Maher. Her retrospective exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art was one of the best attended I’ve been to .
You’re in a right humour t’day
The Artists campaign is a joke as a cursory glance will show there are many non artists who signed it.
Which ones are the non artists?
They are all winners
I’ve just signed that
I ticked “Literature”
although I dithered a bit with it
and considered “Other”
ara, tis all words anyway
off to apply for me Artists Exemption now
see ye in the Chat Pit later lads
bring your dildodoodiedoo
I’ll be voting against repealing the 8th on the basis that repealers are shutting down the debate and behaving disgracefully.
Clearly you do not have a womb.
Clearly a womb doesn’t determine how you vote on this issue
