The Repeal Project have today launched a pop-up shop, selling jumpers and providing information on the campaign to repeal the 8th Amendment, at Indigo & Cloth.
The campaign to repeal Ireland’s 8th Amendment, which criminalises abortion, has been spearheaded by The Abortion Rights campaign. The proceeds from all jumpers sold will go towards the groups’ “trojan work”, says The Repeal Project.
“Repeal Project feeds into the trojan work and monumental impact they have had on the pro-choice cause, “ says a statement on The Repeal Project’s website.
“The Abortion Rights Campaign is a movement for choice and change in Ireland. They aim to promote broad national support for a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution by the Irish Parliament; to push for the introduction of extensive abortion legislation by the Northern Ireland Assembly; and to ensure the health and rights of women in pregnancy are protected in line with international human rights standards.”
A statement on The Repeal Project’s website says their mission is “to vindicate the rights of Irish women by reflecting , respecting and representing the need and want for free safe and legal access to abortion in Ireland.”
Repeal Project’s first pop up is in Indigo & Cloth on July 1st–3rd from 12–4p.m. Come along to find out more about our project, purchase a jumper and to be part of the #repealthe8th movement in Ireland.
