Posters, Meetings and Hunger Strike September 29, 2017

Posted by irishelectionliterature in Uncategorized.

It’s been quite a week in the lead up to Saturdays March For Choice. Posters up, Posters down, meetings called, venues cancelling,meetings moved, false posters and a “Hunger Strike”. I was waiting for the claims that George Soros himself was seen taking down Pro Life Meeting posters.
The Committee hearings started during the week ,with leaks that we may not get to actually vote to Repeal but instead the vote would be to Replace. Hard to know how Replace would get on, The Pro Life side would be against it, what about those that want Repeal, would they campaign against it?
There was of course the visit of the Ladies who were due to speak at the Pro Life Meeting in the IFSC. Who was pictured with the ladies, expressing concern for rape victims, only Captain Compassion himself, Cardinal Connells right hand man Rónán Mullen.
Already I see ads on my Facebook feed telling me that Josef Mengele was an Abortionist. What in the name of God is it going to be like in 6 months time if / when we get to vote on this!!
Incidentally a nuumber of people have made the point about how Facebook ads can be SIPO wise unregulated. This Referendum has the potential to get an awful lot of foreign money trying to influence the vote.

I was thinking precisely this reading this morning about how hotels are refusing to take bookings for meetings whether pro-choice or not. Remembering previous referendums as you say, what are the next six months going to be like. In some ways one has to wonder whether other political activity will get a huge look-in, or is it going to be completely different and this will still be one issue amongst others.

There’s the wider thing too where many media outlets have very limited resources and often just publish press releases without questioning them. So there will be all sorts of unchecked nonsense reaching papers , magazines and websites .
The Journal had some piece yesterday about Death threats to staff at the Spencer hotel. When contacted by other journalists the Spencer knew nothing of the Death threats.
The meetings thing is worrying as the longer it all goes on the less the actual issues will be talked about.
