Belfast's second Rally for Choice will take place on Saturday the 14th of October assembling at Buoy Park at 2pm before taking off for a march through the city centre to demand abortion rights.
With much of the political spotlight being cast on Northern Ireland due to the DUP-Tory deal it is now more important than ever before that we stand up and take what we continue to be denied.
While we welcome the introduction of free abortions to those who have to travel it's not good enough and we won't stop campaigning until we have free, safe and legal abortions on the island of Ireland. Those who cannot travel or those who choose to abort in the comfort of their own homes through the use of pills will continue to be made criminals of by the current law and if caught could face life imprisonment. This cannot continue and we have the power to see to it that it ends here.
This rally will take place two weeks after the 6th Annual March for Choice in Dublin and we call for a mass mobilisation of northern solidarity to take place there and for similar support to take place here.
No longer will we tolerate this treatment from Stormont. Be it women, queers, Gaeilgeoirí, or those who cannot afford to heat their homes while sheds in Fermanagh burn as part of crooked heating schemes, we have had enough and we are demanding more. Let's unite and send a message to Stormont that we have had enough.
When it's your body, it's your right to decide.

5th October 2017
Cost: £7(waged) / £5(unwaged)
Location: The Pavilion, Belfast
MRally for Choice brings you an unmissable night of musical finery courtesy of -- GIRL, Hiva Oa & Beauty Sleep -- some of the most exciting and innovative local acts around at the moment. Be prepared for a night of big sounds and lots of dancing.
GIRL is the pioneering collaboration of two of Belfast's finest selectors Marion Hawkes & Venus Dupree, infectiously mixing everything from disco to techno and beyond.
Beauty Sleep is the dreamy indie sensation made up of Aimee Williamson, Ryan McGroarty and Cheylene Murphy who will bring us their unique brand of contagious guitar pop.
Hiva Oa are Stephen Houlihan, Christine Tubridy and Chris McCorry, offering a wildly versatile fusion of dark synths, noisy guitar riffs and pelting drums... perfect protest music.
We are a grassroots activist group based in Northern Ireland campaigning for free, safe, and legal abortion. With much of the political spotlight being cast on Northern Ireland due to the DUP-Tory deal it is now more important than ever before that we stand up and take what we continue to be denied. The people of Northern Ireland have had enough, so to draw attention to our cause and show the public opinion is not what is protrayed in the media, we need funding.
We are fundraising for:
- Advertising to get the message to the people who need to hear about it
- Public Liability Insurance which is required in Belfast for any march
- Stages so our wonderful and exciting speakers can be seen as well as heard
Please support us by donating a few pounds on our Crowdfunder. If you pledge £12 or more, there are tote bags, badges and t shirts available!
