Green Party's Patrick Costello told Minister Flanagan at the Dáil today that we should examine racism in Ireland, from Direct Provision to Travellers, to reforming hate-speech legislation, instead of 'patting ourselves in the back saying at least we're not as bad as America."

Good idea and let's also use this minute's silence to reflect on our own issues, such as Direct Provision or the racism towards the Traveller community.

Trump threatening to send heavily armed troops in to cities across US to suppress protestors has a distinct bang of this to it. (For those who aren't familiar this was when tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square 1989)

If settled people in Ireland really cared about racism we would not have Mincéirí living in inhumane conditions where there is a lack of water and sanitation, we would not have suicide rates at 7xs higher and we would not have people living in direct provision

Hi there, I didn't. It was within our 5km and we stayed 2m apart. My parents are also cocooning, my dad actually has lung issues and we were conscious to keep them safe while showing solidarity.

We went cause its within our 5km and we kept our distance. So if it's not within yours then perhaps donate to MASI instead?

I remember how angry I was when my daughter got called a mongrel. I worried what prejudices she'd face due to the colour of her skin. Though significant its nothing compared to some of my friends in the US who worry if their kids would come home safe that day.

Just a point to those questioning social distancing today. Where we were standing, protestors were keeping their distance, many were wearing gloves and masks and there were lots of Gardai on duty who asked people to move apart and actively spread people out.

Really proud to see people uniting and showing solidarity here at the US Embassy in Dublin. A man was killed due to his skin colour & it wasn't the first time. We're all here to pay our respects and demand the US protect their citizens.

The rate of black Americans killed by police is more than twice as high as the rate for white Americans. Eric Garner July 2014. George Floyd May 2020. These are just some of the names of the poor souls in between. (Stat & image by ).
