26 April: All out to defend the Fertility Control Clinic!

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group circulates the following message from Radical Women in the spirit of the united front. The MACG supports the clinic defence actions of Radical Women.

Saturday, 26 April, 9.30 am

All out to defend the Fertility Control Clinic!

On 22 March, a strong clinic defence kept the Rosary Parade away. But anti-abortion aggression is escalating. Help make the clinic on 26 April even bigger.

Show the harassers that the pro-choice majority is serious about making them history.

Build the clinic defence before Napthine’s anti-democratic “move on” laws take force in September—show the government that we will defend women’s right to exercise their choice and that we will stand together to support our right to do just that!

Build up our solidarity with the clinic’s workers and the women they serve.

On Saturday, 29 March, the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants (HOGPI) broke from their monthly Rosary Parade schedule. More than 60 zealots stood outside the clinic entrance—the space that clinic defenders have held for 10 years to prevent HOGPI from harassing women. Show the harassers that their new tactics only make us more determined to stand up for women’s rights. Join us in holding this space to keep the HOGPI at bay.

Please contact Radical Women if you want to be part of a rapid response network that would answer an urgent Saturday morning callout, if needed.

The cinic defence needs you on 26 April!
Fertility Control Clinic, 118 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne
Take Tram #48 or #75 to Powlett or Simpson Streets
