National Protect the 8th Summer Blitz
The Protect the 8th Summer Blitz took place in locations all over Ireland on 6th July.
If you have been at a recent Family & Life meeting in your area, you will likely have heard about this national activation day.
On that day people from around the country engaged in a pro-life action of their choice in their own locality and took pictures to post on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #Protectthe8th.
In some parts of the country, people gave out Protect the 8th leaflets at a nearby housing estate or bus station. Some groups of pro-lifers displayed Protect the 8th banners to create awareness and encourage debates. Others arranged a public stand or held events that draw the public to view a pro-life DVD or lecture.
Whatever your contribution, it is important to share photos of your pro-life activity and post it to Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag, #Protectthe8th. Alternatively you can email your photo to email@example.com and we can upload it for you.
This is a great opportunity to occupy the space on social media while also providing a pro-life witness at ground level in locations all around the country.
