Saturday 28th October marks the 5th anniversary of the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar in Galway. 

Galway Pro Choice have extended an invitation to people throughout the country to mark the day with a candlelit vigil and have provided this image of Savita for people to use on their social media from the 20th October when Savita first became ill.

 

The Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment is organising the Dublin vigil.

This is a silent vigil –  there will be no speeches.  Just bring a candle or a flower and join us at at 4pm outside the GPO.
