Lisa Wilkinson, of well-being centre the elbowroom, in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7, writes:
In support of the women of Ireland and to highlight our commitment to women-centered health care, The elbowroom will be supporting its staff’s decision to strike on the 8th of March. This means the centre will be closed for the day, re-opening on Thursday the 9th March.
We are doing this because the Irish Government still has not called a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment.
The elbowroom will open it’s doors on the day to campaigners and supporters of the Repeal The 8th movement…Soup and tea will be served between 1 pm and 3 pm. All those who support the initiative are welcome.
The elbowroom will be closed on the 8th March – Strike4Repeal (The elbowroom)
