Petition: Stop the victimisation of rape survivors in Irish Courts

Cork Feminista supporter Grace Cahalane-Hughes has organised a petition to protest the recent decision by Mr. Justice Carney to traumatise and then jail an alleged rape victim during the trial of her accused rapists.

 

For more information about the case, read the article that was published in the Sunday Independent on 12th February: http://www.independent.ie/national-news/courts/gangrape-woman-arrested-during-trial-following-overdose-3017017.html

 

Please sign the petition here and forward the link to friends and family.  We need to tell the Ministry of Justice and the Irish judicial system that this is not acceptable treatment of victims of sexual violence.
