Respect For All

Two final pieces from the #ae17 election campaign. Above, a somewhat menacing crocodile waits impatiently for an Irish-language act: “Meas do chách – Acht na Gaeilge anois!” (“Respect for all – Irish language act now!”) The white circle on red is the logo of An Dream Dearg, an Irish-language campaign (Irish News); the crocodile stems from DUP leader Arlene Foster’s response to Sinn Féin demands for an Act, when she said “If you feed a crocodile, they’re going to keep coming back and looking for more.” (BBC-NI | video at RTÉ) She later said she regretted the remarks as they allowed her to be demonised during the campaign (BelTel).
Below, Saoradh’s plea that “A vote for Stormont equals a vote for British rule – Don’t vote! Reject the quislings and Brit collaborators.” (See also: Stormont Must Go)

Never Again

03510-2016-06-07-never-again
This is an old poster (dating to November 2012) still visible in Castle Street, calling for a march and vigil in remembrance of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old Indian dentist living in Galway, who died from a septic miscarriage after being denied an abortion.
As a result of her death, the Protection Of Life During Pregnancy Act was signed into law in 2013, more than 20 years after the X Case, clarifying the issue of abortion in Ireland in the case of a threat to the mother’s life.
