Students' Union To Tour Country With 'Repeal Mobile'

Share this article


The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is today launching a 'Repeal Mobile' as part of its campaign for a 'Yes' vote in the Eighth Amendment referendum.

They are launching the two-week roadshow, in a bid to mobile students to canvass and campaign ahead of polling day on May 25th.

The 'Repeal Mobile' roadshow will begin at Maynooth University today, before visiting campuses across the country.

USI President Michael Kerrigan explained: "We’re going to be educating students on the damages the Eighth Amendment has had on Irish people, and about the opportunities students have to vote for a caring and compassionate future for them to live in.

“It’s time people who are pregnant were allowed to make their own decisions with their doctors right here in Ireland, instead of having to going abroad."

He added: “Students have campaigned for abortion rights for decades, and we’re not stopping now."

The USI - which is behind the 'Students for Choice' campaign - is among dozens of civil society groups to have joined the Together For Yes campaign.
