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.

Here’s a wee edit of Saturday’s abortions rights march as it rounded the corner at Merrion Square. I filmed for close to an hour and a half as tens of thousands of people passed. Here’s what it looks like sped up into three minutes…

Linda Kavanagh writes:

The landslide vote for Marriage Equality and the passage of the Gender Recognition Bill earlier this year, demonstrates clearly, the huge appetite for change and progress in this country. This will be the last March for Choice before the next general election, so we must make it clear – securing our vote will mean making a commitment to Repeal the 8th amendment, so that we can take a step closer to securing free, safe and legal access to abortion in Ireland.
The March will kick off at 2 pm in Dublin at the Garden of Remembrance (assembling from 1.30pm), and like last year, we are asking that you bring a wheelie case if possible to make the effort and sound of travel abundantly clear!
