Defend and Extend Abortion Rights: Pro-Choice Protest

// 14 October 2008

From Abortion Rights:

Protest Tuesday 21st October – 5.30pm onwards

Old Palace Yard, outside Parliament, St Stephen’s entrance.

Emergency protest to show the strength of pro-choice opinion ahead of the final abortion votes in Parliament the following day.

The protest has been called to oppose further anti-abortion attempts to drive back women’s fundamental rights and support the first Parliamentary opportunity in a generation to improve the law for women and extend rights to Northern Ireland.

All pro-choice supporters welcome!

Please bring your friends, colleagues and banners.

I don’t finish my uni seminar til 5, so I won’t be able to get in til about 6-6.30, is that alright?

(Never been able to actually *go* on a protest before, so excuse my stupidity)

I’m sure that’s fine. At the last one people arrived at different times and the protest lasted several hours (I didn’t stay still the end so I can’t say exactly how long – 3 hours maybe?).
