‘Do you trust the government?’: Another Strike 4 Repeal is proposed

On March 8 of this year, Ireland played host to the Strike 4 Repeal rally – an event which saw the participation of thousands of people around the country who were determined to see a repeal of the 8th amendment.

And according to the Strike 4 Repeal Facebook page this morning, another one is in the works.

Alongside a video which featured footage of the events which played out on International Women's Day this year, Strike 4 Repeal wrote: "Time's up! Do we trust the government to ask the right question?"

Guiding members of the public towards a pledge, the organisers wrote: "Strike 4 Repeal will be holding a national strike if the Government does not commit to a clear yes or no question on a referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment."

"We are also calling on the Government to provide for free, safe and legal abortion services on request in Ireland. This is essential for all women and pregnant people to ensure their right to reproductive healthcare is guaranteed, regardless of circumstances."

"By taking this pledge you are telling the Government that you are prepared to strike if these requirements are not met. Should it become clear during the Dáil debate on the referendum that they intend to water down our rights, we will contact you with at least one week's notice to announce the date for a national strike."

"Every pledge will send a clear message that we won't wait any longer. Now is the time for repeal and full abortion rights in Ireland."
