Last night.

Dublin LGBTQ Pride tweeted:

On this day in 1983 the killers of Declan Flynn walked free. Eleven days later the first large-scale protest against LGBT+ discrimination in Ireland took place. Hundreds of people marched from Liberty Hall to Fairview Park. Dublin’s Stonewall moment, it led to the first Dublin Pride Parade in June [1983]..

This afternoon.

Participants in the ‘We Own Our Hospitals’ march, organised by Parents for Choice, Uplift, the National Women’s Council of Ireland and Justice for Magdalenes, make their way from the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square, Dublin 1 to Leinster House.

The march coincides with the Uplift petition – currently signed by 103,840 people (above) – against the decision to give sole ownership of the new National Maternity Hospital to the Religious Sisters of Charity.

RTÉ reports that “up to 1,500” people are taking part in the march.

The petition can be signed here

This Sunday.

From the Garden of Remembrance, Dublin 1 at 2pm.

Via Uplift:

A new National Maternity Hospital is urgently needed but cannot be allowed to be owned by the Sisters of Charity. Parents for Choice, Uplift, and National Women’s Council of Ireland and Justice for Magdalens are organising a national people powered march to send a message to Health Minister Simon Harris that he must urgently deal with this crisis and guarantee that the hospital will not be owned by a religious order.
