    This virus apparently hits the BAME harder. Encouraging a gathering of people to protest in crowds where coloured people is likely to attend because of the issue at hand, really its idiotic and it doesn't bode well for really caring about coloured people and the issue at hand.

    If organisers truly cared about blacklifes, there would be ensuring a protest would be adapted to the times and done online in accordance with the social distancing measures. Like some sort of a zoom candle lit vigil or something.

    An Anti-Racism demonstration has been organised Saturday, 6 June at 2pm in Eyre Square. Take all necessary precautions

    Disgraceful and disrespectful to all those who have made unemployed, business closed , families who couldn’t attend funerals, people who haven’t hugged family members

    The demonstrators will actually alienate people and may actually encourage racism and it’s seen as giving us all the fingers

    It is an ILLEGAL GATHERING and against the law.

    I would have thought boards.ie wouldnt have wanted to be running afoul of the law?

    This virus hits BAME people more. How is encouraging them to congregate in a protest going to help them and also it flies in the face against the issue and the protesting at hand, the "blacklifesmatter".

    Where is the sense in that?

    Get a book of condolences open and sign it or come up with a different type of crafty protest if they so wish.

    The amount of absolute morons flooding this country is astonishing. Someone gets killed the other side of the world and you arrange a protest march even though you've been try to keep your distance from people for the last 3 months.

    As if the US gives a damn about some tiny backwater on the edge of Europe. Pityful attention seeking socialites. No amount of protest marches will ever change what's going on in the US. The history of slavery and oppression goes back multiple generations and is engrained in US syche ready to erupt whenever the situation suits the narrative. Rinse and repeat. Has been happening forever, only now people feel affected because it's on their own Instagram page.....

    BREAKING: Garda criminal investigation launched into organisers of Black Lives Matter protest in Dublin yesterday.

    Organising any events is banned under Covid19 regulations and organising Dublin protest was a criminal offence, say gardai.

    Maybe they want the Gardai to break it up, so they can "fight back" and say "Look!! Police brutality in Ireland!!!" Maybe...
    This SHOULD NOT go ahead and the govt should come out and say so.

    What is the real agenda behind these protests. They must know that the majority of the people in this country are horrified looking at them. They are not going to get widespread support for their cause. Are they trying to create friction between their target group and the majority of the Irish people in order to build up their membership or something. Or to justify the existence of these groups.

    I walked past a house that had handmade a ‘black lives matter’ poster in the window along with ‘End Direct Provision’. Basically the same people who make a living from the ‘racism’ in Ireland.

    You underestimate the bubble the organisers live in.
    This is what happens when the state spends decades nurturing a quango sector with taxpayers money. You get a caste of professional activists and "social entrepreneurs" smelling each other's farts and utterly detached from basic common sense.

    I don’t see much wrong with the thread unless you support illegal mass gatherings?
