first_imgAfter vicious attacks by right-wing, anti-abortion politicians seeking to shut the federal government down on Sept. 30 if Planned Parenthood was not defunded, the organization asked supporters to hold public demonstrations and meetings all over the country on Sept. 29, #PinkOutDay, in a show of solidarity. In response, people organized events in more than 250 cities, towns and colleges on behalf of the largest provider of essential health care services for poor women in the U.S.“We’re going to demonstrate just how many people across the country are willing to stand up and fight for women’s health and rights,” read a statement posted on According to a poll conducted Sept. 24-28 by USAToday/Suffolk University, responses were 2 to 1 — 65 percent to 29 percent — in favor of continuing federal funding for Planned Parenthood.A noon rally in New York City, attended by several hundred mostly women of all ages and nationalities, was held in Foley Square opposite the federal building. In addition to several city politicians, young women talked about the quality of services they received from Planned Parenthood and why the fight for reproductive rights was linked to the Black Lives Matter movement. Spoken-word poet, performance artist from Jamaica and lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer rights political activist Staceyanne Chin roused the crowd when she detailed why women must have the right to choose to be mothers, based her own experience.In addition to handing out the Sept. 24 Workers World headlined “Defend Planned Parenthood: Stop the war on poor women,” WW organizers held signs reading, “Defund the Pentagon, not Planned Parenthood” and “Health care is a human right, reproductive justice now!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Awards programme will be broadcast on Virgin Media One on Sunday, November 11th at 9.30 p.m. Pic: Mac Innes PhotographyPresenting the Children’s Grief Centre in Limerick with their prize for winning the overall National Lottery Good Cause of the Year, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan said: “Loss, whether through death, separation or divorce, can be devastating, especially for the young. This award goes to the Children’s Grief Centre for its extraordinary work providing comfort and support to grieving children. Its committed volunteers work tirelessly all year round to provide an oasis of calm for those who have lost loved ones, helping them find their voice.For almost a decade the volunteer-led Children’s Grief Centre in Limerick has been giving children who have suffered loss a voice. The only such service in the country the Centre has grown in demand since it set up in 2009 offering unique one-to-one support sessions. To date it has given a voice to around 1,200 grieving young people.The children who visit the centre are given the opportunity to work through their feelings and are empowered to find their voice using play, art, clay, workbooks stories and much more. In working with children and young people, the centre is also supporting parents and guardians.National Lottery Good Causes funding allowed the Children’s Grief Centre to meet the growing demand for its service in Limerick City and County, and in the neighbouring Counties of Clare and Tipperary.Funding enabled it to develop a sophisticated database ensuring children and young people’s information is kept securely and appointments are set promptly. The Centre also used funding to buy materials for the ‘Teen’ and ‘Art” rooms, precious spaces for children and young people who attend for support.Sr Helen Culhane of the Children’s Grief Centre said: “We are overjoyed to receive this reward. Children often find it difficult to express their feelings through language so by providing them with clay and paint, sand and crayons, we allow them to choose their own form of expression. The impact of this work with children is incredible. As a result of attending the Children’s Grief Centre it has been shown that children are happier, more calm, and have less feelings of anger, guilt and sadness.”More than 30 cent in every €1 spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of Health, Sport, Youth, Community, Arts & Culture, Heritage and the Irish Language. Last year alone €226 million was raised for Good Causes by players of National Lottery games – or an incredible €620,000 a day.Since the National Lottery was established over 30 years ago players in Ireland have helped raise more than €5.3 billion for Good Causes, funding which has shaped the development of modern Ireland.National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin congratulated the Children’s Grief Centre on winning the overal prize: “It is fitting that Ireland’s unsung heroes who work quietly under the radar to improve lives and make a difference are honoured in these inaugural National Lottery Good Awards. Their work often goes unrecognised – but it is so valued.” Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?
