Video: Socialists speak in Irish parliament

Ruth Coppinger and Paul Murphy giving a voice to mass pro-choice and anti-water charges movements in Dail

Below we publish two videos of speeches by Socialist Party (CWI in Ireland) members, Paul Murphy and Ruth Coppinger, who are Anti Austerity Alliance members of parliament. Ruth Coppinger gave a widely publicised speech on a woman’s right to choose following a historic mass demonstration in favour of abortion rights last weekend. Paul Murphy speaks on the political repression being meted out to activists from the successful mass movement against water charges. More info on the #JobstownNotGuilty case which saw a 17-year old charged with false imprisonment last week and will see others including Paul Murphy charged with the same offence early next year, can be read here.
