“Before you make up your mind”- Secondary Schools Leaflet on Abortion from the Socialist Workers Movement 1992 December 3, 2012


From 1992 , in the aftermath of the X-Case a leaflet on Abortion from The Socialist Workers Movement intended for Secondary school students. The leaflet was never distributed.

 

Going by the experience of the 1980s it was thought likely that the ‘pro-lifers’ would mobilise in the schools and use their connections to get anti-choice videos shown, guest lecturers from SPUC [Society for the Protection of Unborn Children] into classes etc. The SWM had a couple of contacts who were school students so we decided to draw up a leaflet specifically aimed at them, with the idea that where we had a contact they would distribute the leaflet inside their school and hopefully get some of their mates to do the same: and we would also leaflet some schools from outside.

You’ll find a more detailed explanation of the leaflet here
Many thanks to the CLR for use of the leaflet.

Something highly unusual here, a leaflet for an Irishman, Finghín Kelly, who is running in the Local Elections in Brussels.

“I am the 10th candidate on the Gauches Communes list in Saint Gilles. Saint Gilles is a commune in Brussels.

Gauches Communes is standing in 4 Communes in Brussels. It was initiated by 3 parties, Parti Socialiste de Lutte (sister party of the Irish SP), Parti Humaniste and Comité pour une Autre Politique. It also has many left independents and trade union activists. Also on the list in St Gilles is myself, member of the Irish Socialist Party and a member of the Greek party SYRIZA.”

Leaflets are produced also in Flemish.
Many thanks for sending this on and best of luck in the election.

1988 Cork May Day Leaflet August 26, 2012

Many thanks to the sender who notes…

A leaflet advertising the Cork May Day rally 1988. It was produced by that year’s Cork May Day committee ….
The committee was set up under the auspices of Cork Council of Trade Unions. While the leaflet was funded by the ITGWU, the committee worked independently and organised one of the most successful May Day events in Cork up to that date.
Interestingly the issues covered in the leaflet are still with us today – unemployment, health cuts, the taxation system and the need to defend workers rights. The leaflet came less than a year after the first “partnership” deal so from a historical context it is quite interesting.
