This is a collection of some of my better pictures from the pro-choice counter demonstration at the Dail against the Youth Defence billboards which were aimed at shaming women who had abortions. This demonstration was organised through a facebook page 'Unlike Youth Defence, I trust women to decide their lives for themselves' and saw as many as 350 people turning out to protest at short notice. It's part of a sequence of pro choice meetings & protests triggered by the Youth Defence posters that are seeing the emergance of a new pro-choice movement.
There are more of my photos in the WSM Facebook album from this protest
Like most sites we have a major problem with bots trying to post spam into the comments section. While looking for a better solution we are reduced to only on turning on the ability to anonymously comment for brief periods around the posting of new articles. But if you are a regular visitor you can comment at any time by creating an account on the site and logging in before posting. But the Spammers also set up accounts so to reduce the workload of deleting those we only turn on the ability to create accounts for brief periods which we announce on our Twitter & Facebook accounts so follow those to hear when we have that turned on. We do want you to be able to engage with us via the comments and we are very sorry for the fact that we can't find a better way of dealing with spam.
