Pro-Choice Forum: Getting referendum ready In Limerick
30 August 2017 @ 19:00 - 21:00Free
With it looking like a referendum to repeal the 8th is only months away, we need to get referendum ready!
This is an open meeting for all prochoice people in Limerick to come together and discuss how we can build a pro-choice campaign for a REPEAL vote in that referendum and to demand pro-choice legislation.
Limerick will be a key battleground in any referendum, and we need an energetic campaign that will mobilise people to vote for repeal. We need a pro-choice campaign that will take on the misogynistic arguments of the anti-choice side and argue for the right to choose, so no pregnant person is forced to travel to procure an abortion or made a criminal for having one here.
Possible campaign ideas to consider in the short term:
– Mobilising for March 4 Choice in September
– Commemorating the fifth anniversary of the death of Savita Halappanavar this October
– Organising a register to vote drive, particularly to get young people registered for the referendum
– Any other ideas you have about what we can do now to ensure the biggest repeal vote possible next year
Hope to see you there
