Quebec city - Pro-choice outmobilizes chain for life

When NEFAC members learned that a bunch of christian fundamentalists where mobilising for a so-called “chain for life” in Quebec city, the decided to do something about it. They called their friends and comrades at the Ainsi squattent-elles! anarcha-feminist radio program and issued a joint call for a pro-choice counter demonstration. In less then a week, the anarchists where able to mobilise close to one hundred people, that’s five times more then the anti-abortion group!

Well, that surely is encouraging!

I'm a feminist blogger from Montréal, and I'm currently trying to gather a group of like-minded people to organize some kind of event to mark the 20th anniversary of the decriminalization of abortion in Canada, on January 28th, 2008. If you are interested, or if you know people who would be, kindly contact me via my blog womenwithswords.blogspot.com, or via the other blog I've set up for this particular project, 28janvier2008.wordpress.com.

Thanks!
