In late 2013 the conservative-led Spanish government proposed a change to existing law, to dramatically restrict access to abortion in the country. The reaction to the proposed changes took many by surprise as huge demonstrations took place across Spain and Europe to protest at these proposals. A collective of key women film directors who were against the proposed changes came together to form a collective and filmed the protests, resulting in the film – Yo Decido: El Tren de la Libertad (I Decide: The Train of Freedom).

The film quickly went viral on the internet and as the campaign gathered momentum the Spanish government dropped the majority of the proposed changes resulting in the resignation of the Justice Minister who had staked his career on implementation of the changes.

The GMB Glasgow General APEX Branch have organised this screening of Yo Decido: El Tren de la Libertad (I Decide: The Train of Freedom).

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion with local trade unionists.
