I am Agastya, a Wikimedian from India.
I was wondering if any of you could get some good photographs from tomorrow's Irish referendum for the legality of abortion. It is an important and sensitive topic, and it is possible some people would carry placards/banners for the referendum. There might even be a peaceful protest. Or even if you could get me photos of queues of people waiting in line to vote.
Please get some great photos and upload them to Commons as soon as possible.
Consider adding Category:May 25, 2018 Irish referendum to the media files.
Thank you for your time!

*Wikimedia Community Ireland Newsletter – May 2018*
*Sybil at The Hunt Museum*
A Wikipedia Edit Workshop is being held at the Hunt Museum, Limerick on May
19th with help from Limerick Lace, the City Museum and the City Library,
the Hunt Museum Docents and the people of Limerick and thanks to Eamonn
Ryan for creating the beautiful images.
Wikipedia is the 5th most popular website in the world, built by volunteers
from around the globe.
We need your help to create and improve articles, highlighting the amazing
achievements of Irish women in fashion and design, particularly those with
connections to Limerick and its lace traditions.
No experience is necessary - we will teach you how to edit and help you to
find high quality reference material. More details will be announced soon
through The Hunt Museum website.
