A Star Trek-themed video from the Abortion Support Network in England – in which it appeals for donations.

The group has been helping to provide information, financial assistance and accommodation to women from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man who have to travel to England for a safe and legal abortion since 2009.

DRI

Earlier this month DRI [Digital Rights ireland] faced closure if it couldn’t raise the money needed to pay legal costs [incurred following a failed application for a right to speak in a court case whereby record companies were demanding internet blocking].

Well…

 “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received and we’ve more or less hit our target and will be able to cover the costs.”

Co-founder of Digital Rights Ireland, TJ McIntyre, speaking in yesterday’s Sunday Business Post [behind paywall].

Yay.
