Tonight.

At 6pm, at Dublin City Hall.

Dublin City Council will vote on a motion not to sell the Sean McDermott Street magdalene laundry (above) to a Japanese hotel chain – after the vote didn’t take place on September 3.

An online petition in support of the motion has, as of this afternoon, gained 10,466 signatures.

Further to this…

Supporters of the motion are calling on people to join them in a peaceful protest outside the city hall at 6pm as the vote takes place.
