Standing 4 Women demonstration planned in Dundalk on Wednesday
A demonstration will take place in the Market Square in Dundalk this Wednesday afternoon to show support towards the victims of the cervical smear scandal.
The Standing 4 Women event will take place at 5pm on Wednesday to coincide with a protest at the Dáil and a series of other rallies around the country.
People are asked to wear red on the day and stand in solidarity with the women and families affected by the cervical check scandal.
“Families are not receiving adequate support or access to information and we want mandatory disclosure reintroduced immediately to restore faith in the healthcare system,” said Clare O’Connor, campaign spokesperson.
“The people of Ireland have shown that they will not accept substandard healthcare for women any longer.
“We are compassionate, we are organised and we will not accept media spin being prioritised over women’s healthcare,” she said.
A post on the Standing 4 Women event page read: “We are strongest standing together. Standing for Vicky, for Emma, for Irene, for Catherine, for Orla, for Julie, for Rosie, for Debbie, for Carol, for Ann, for all 18, for all 209.”
All are welcome to attend.
Please wear red & stand in solidarity with the women & families affected.
