Candlelight Vigil Belfast City Hall

In collaboration with Birth Mothers and their Children for Justice Northern Ireland.
All welcome.  

A Candlelight Vigil will take place at Belfast City Hall on Tuesday May 29thto remember and recognize those who spent time in the Mother and Baby Institutions and Magdalene laundries. The evening will culminate with music and contributions by guest speakers.
Not only is the vigil a memorial for the deceased but it is a manifestation of support for ‘Survivors’ in their quest for justice and recognition; be it for their incarceration, forced adoption, abuses suffered during childbirth or ill treatment when eventually fostered out. This collaborative event organised by artist Sadie Cramer with Birth Mothers and their Children for Justice Northern Ireland recognizes the difficulties encountered in accessing birth and medical records and the broader questions surrounding illegal adoptions and vaccination trials. 

A book of condolence wil be open at City Hall throughout the day.


All welcome.
