Event description

Description

All are welcome to the third open meeting of the London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign (formerly Repeal the 8th London), the London branch of the Abortion Right Campaign which stands in solidarity with the 3,500+ women who travel outside of Ireland to access abortion every year.

The London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign aims to bring together people in London to call for the Repeal of the 8th Amendment from the Irish constitution, and the decriminalisation of abortion in Northern Ireland.

The event is kindly hosted by Queen Mary University School of Law.




The agenda will be updated closer to the time but we are pleased to announce the following now:

- Speakers:

  • Colm O'Gorman, Executive DIrector of Amnesty International Ireland.

  • Roisin Ingle, Journalist, Irish Times

  • Mariead Enright, Senior Lecturer in Birmingham Law School and member of Lawyers for Choice.

- Since our first open meeting, we've established 5 working groups (Lobbying, Media/Comms, Fundraising, Legal, Northenrn Ireland and Protest/Direct Action) who are all busy working on projects. You can hear what they've been up to and how to get involved.
