Commenting on reports this morning that show that up to 125,000 people have been registered in recent months, Solidarity TD Ruth Coppinger said that such levels of voter registration was unprecedented and showed the desire for social change among young people.
This morning in Buswell’s Hotel, Solidarity TD Ruth Coppinger hosted a press conference calling for a Yes vote in the upcoming referendum.
She was joined by Susan Fitzgerald a Regional Industrial Organiser for Unite, Liza Kelly a community activist from Castleknock, Sandra Fay a school teacher and trade unionist from Jobstown, and Jess Morris a college officer from DIT Cathal Brugha Street. The speakers gave voice to the reality of abortion in the lives of women in workplaces, communities and colleges.
Now is the time for Solidarity
The conservative, right-wing politics of the establishment provide no future for young people, women and workers. All they offer is inequality, austerity and bigotry. They support the capitalist market which is driven by the ruthless drive for profit and is incapable of meeting our needs. Solidarity is about bringing together all those oppressed and exploited by this rigged system into a new political movement for the millions, not the millionaires. Join us today.
