ROSA activists (for Reproductive rights, against Oppression, Sexism and Austerity), including CWI Ireland members, shown campaigning for a woman's right to choose.

They are demanding a referendum to repeal the eighth amendment to the Irish constitution which prohibits women's abortion rights.

Anti Austerity Alliance TD (MP) and Socialist Party Ireland member Ruth Coppinger has a #repealbill up for debate in the Dail (Irish parliament) in October. Campaigners will use the run up to that debate to put as much pressure as possible on all TDs to vote in favour.

The workers' strikes are unprecedented because they are coordinated - using social media - in a police state where strikes are usually confined to one workplace or city.
