Galway Pro-Choice Attends the March for Choice in Belfast

Taking part in a protest in Belfast has proven a very empowering experience to me. Although we were a small group compared to the anti-choicers who were parading, I feel we did make a statement – women need to be heard, our bodies are not a property of church/state, and we are here to stay until our demands are met. Police was around and they were quite intimidating, but that wouldn’t deter us. We chanted, shouted, and peacefully made a point that we are here to stay. Taking active part in a protest has been the materialization of my cyberactivism and I have learned a lot and am extremely grateful for the opportunity Galway Pro-Choice has given me. As a newcomer, it’s important to feel welcomed and GPC has been an outstandingly friendly group so far.
