Thank you Kelly for putting into words how systemic shaming keeps models silent and the status quo intact. I too have felt compelled to remain quite and compliant because I feared acknowledging unethical pressures would be perceived by the industry as my failure, weakness, entitlement, or lack of the grit and commitment necessary to "make it". Believe me, I wanted to "make it" as much as anyone has wanted it AND I was willing to do whatever it took. But that is not sustainable nor should it be expected. Why is it systemically expected that models damage their mental and physical health to do their job? Why is self respect and self care seen as weakness or whininess? Why is holding adult professionals accountable for basic worker rights violations seen as "bitterness"? #noshame #workersrights Repost from @kelly_mittendorf #DearNYFW - I couldn’t figure out this post for a long time, and a friend finally told me that it was because models who speak up against issues in the industry that did not have “perfect” careers (aka myself) are seen in a “certain” way. Chiefly, that I “didn’t have what it takes” and now choose to throw a tantrum and blame everyone but myself. I think about the women who starved themselves, ate rotten foods to make themselves ill, developed drug and alcohol addictions, having had my own life ROCKED in an effort to desperately chase an unrealistic standard, and am aghast at the accepted concept that they do not have the authority to speak on a topic that they overcame. I am proud to be bitter and will forever believe an inch does not define you. In times of chaos let us make decisions thoughtfully, with positive intent, and realize the supreme importance of diversity and acceptance.

As we go through our day taking in the wonders around us with a disinterested eye, we often forget to take the time to remember that there were amazing people and lives that went into building the structure of the society we live in. It wasn’t that long ago that everything from the clothes we wear to the buildings we inhabit were built in highly dangerous conditions lacking the rules and regulations that serve to keep workers safe in modern industry. Workers’ Memorial Day commemorates the lives that have been given in the pursuit of modern comfort and convenience, and stands for the worldwide efforts to create safety in the workplace.

From Fingal's Solidarity launch. We had speakers on the bus strike, the repeal movement and struggle for abortion rights, Jobstown, the Wives and Partners of Defense Force Members, animal rights with particular focus on the Solidarity bill to ban wild animals in circuses and Mick Barry TD. The wide range of issues is what Solidarity is about. All of these movements are connected and they're all part of the broader system to change society. Now is the time to join Solidarity if you haven't already done so. #RepealThe8th#CitizensAssembly#AbortionRights#ProChoice#BusStrike#TradeUnion#WorkersRights#DefenseForce#MickBarry#Solidarity#JobstownNotGuilty#Jobstown#AnimalRights#CircusBill#BanCircusCruelty#DublinFingal#AntiCapitalism#Socialism

This years annual May Day ceremony, to mark International Workers Day, will be celebrated on this coming Monday 1st of May at 8pm. with a commemorative event at the former home of John Lynch, in Lower New Street, (off Quay Street) Sligo.

The speaker this year is Mr Pat Fallon. Cllr Declan Bree will preside at the event.
John Lynch was a political activist, a socialist and internationalist. He was a close colleague of James Connolly and he played a major part in the development of the labour and trade union movement not only in Sligo and Leitrim but also at a national level.

Traditionally May 1st has been a day with a special significance for the labour and trade union movement – a day of international solidarity.

May Day has been publicly celebrated in Sligo over the decades. We are proud to maintain that tradition and we hope you can make it to the short ceremony on Monday evening.
