Event description

Description

All are welcome to the second open meeting of 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.

Repeal the 8th London aims to bring together people in London to call for the Repeal of the 8th Amendment from the Irish constitution, and the extension of the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland.




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

- Ailbhe Smyth, Convenor, Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment; Executive Adviser, YES EQUALITY Campaign; former Head of Women's Studies in UCD will be speaking

- Updates from working groups. Since our first open meeting, we've established 5 working groups (Lobbying, Media/Comms, Partnerships, Fundraising and Protest/Direct Action) who are all busy making plans.

- More speakers TBC
