Repeal the 8th Role of trade Unions
Jan

6:30 PM18:30

Repeal the 8th Role of trade Unions

Meet at 16/17 Suffolk Street at 18:30

Co-hosted by the Trade Union Campaign to Repeal the 8th and the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth, this public meeting focuses on Article 40.3.3 as a workplace, class, equality and human rights issue. The trade union movement has an extensive history of championing those who are denied full equality. Without the right to make decisions about their bodies, women and girls in Ireland are second class citizens. This event explores how Ireland's largest civil society movement can help to change that.

The meeting opens with an overview by Dr Fiona Bloomer of the groundbreaking Abortion as a Workplace Issue: A Trade Union Survey North and South of Ireland. 

Maggie Ryan of the TUCR8A, which has long identified the 8th as a workplace issue, explains why that is the case. 

Community and reproductive rights activist Cathleen O'Neill examines the 8th Amendment as a further erosion of the lot of working class women. 

Mags O'Brien of the ICTU Global Solidarity Committee focuses on abortion as a human rights issue. 

Emily Waszak of Strike4Repeal and Migrant and Ethnic Minorities for Reproductive Justice gives Article 40.3.3 a comprehensive equality audit.

The meeting will be chaired by Ailbhe Smyth, convenor of the Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment.

Transgender Healthcare Protest
Jan
20
2:00 PM14:00

Transgender Healthcare Protest

  • Merrion Square West Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

For those whom aren't aware, healthcare for binary trans people and non binary people in Ireland is woefully unacceptable and is far behind the majority of the developed world.

All people under the trans umbrella in Ireland are being subjected to woefully unacceptable treatment (or refused treatment altogether) when it comes to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and gender reassignment surgeries.

As a result of our outdated and unacceptable procedures when it comes to trans healthcare, people are being left on waiting lists of up to 2 years (and longer in many cases) to receive their required treatment. Some being denied treatment altogether.

All doctors (GP's included) are qualified to prescribe HRT, yet, only two (HSE employed) consultants in the entire country will do so. Not only this, but these consultants will only accept the unwarranted "diagnosis" from an equal number of psychiatrist/clinical psychologist.

These waiting lists are as a result of continuous cancelled clinics by these consultants, an unwillingness for qualified physicians to prescribe HRT and the outdated but enforced medical/diagnostic model enforced by the HSE, and these few consultants. 

The trans community as a whole, would benefit greatly from Ireland engaging with the current model of informed consent and gender identity clinics, adopted by the majority of the developed world.

People are dying as a result of the shortcoming of the Irish government in denying/unnecessarily delaying treatment for people whom are desperately in need.

Please come along to the protest for improved healthcare services for the transgender community to help improve the lives of the tens of thousands of trans/nb people in Ireland.

Trans Policy Workshop
Nov
20
6:15 PM18:15

Trans Policy Workshop

Event organised as part of UCC Students' Union Trans & Non-Binary Awareness Week.

The Gender Recognition Act is due to be reviewed in 2018. This review is expected to be concerned with the recognition of people aged 16 & 17, as well as possibly allowing for legal recognition of identities outside the male/female binary. 

The aim of this workshop is to work with people from all political groups and none to improve their party's policies on transgender rights, as well as providing a direction for any lobbying to independent members of the Oireachtas ahead of the review, and its suggested changes.

The workshop will give a brief background to the history of transgender rights in Ireland, where we've come since the 2015 Act and where we should be going, including policies not relating to the 2015 Act.
