Friends from different EL parties from all over Europe are supporting the Spanish women through solidarity actions in front of Spanish embassies and other emblematic places.

 

The struggle continues and on the 1st of February we, the EL, aspiring to a Europe of people's rights and not of those of the markets, will also participate in the mobilization, in defence of a fundamental right such as that of abortion, which shall be free – both in terms of rights and costs – and out of the penal code.

 

In different countries the struggle will continue and on the same day actions are planned, while at the same time some will travel to Madrid from their respective countries of origin in order to join the action.
