Thousands of people have gathered and taken part in an anti-racism march in Dublin

Dublin: The anti-racism rally, which drew tens of thousands of people, shook the city and became a historic event.

Thousands marched in support of diversity and to oppose racism.

A coalition of community groups, trade unions, and political parties organised the “Ireland for All” solidarity march in Dublin. Around 50,000 people took part in the rally.

The rally began in Dublin’s Parnell Square and marched to the Custom House.

Along with the United Against Racisms, nurses’ organisation INMO, MASI, the National Women’s Council of Ireland, TENI, several political parties, and more than 100 community organisations participated in the rally.

Thousands of people were still waiting at the starting point to join the rally as the front line of the march reached the Customs House courtyard. Human rights activist Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, founder of the leading multicultural group AkiDwA, Dr. Salome Mbugua, INMO General Secretary Phil Ni Sheaghdha, and others said during the march that it is incorrect to say that Ireland has no room for refugees when the country’s population is lower than it was in 1950. Among the notables lined up are: Many Indian nurses, including Shalbin Joseph, and human rights and political activists participated in the rally on behalf of the Indian community.

Speakers reminded the government that Ireland has plenty of room for migrants and that the issue is not with the refugees themselves but with the country’s processing system.

Christy Moore, a singer who attended the Ireland for All Rally, stated that he came to protest the attacks on refugees. The protest march was rich in music and drumming.

Last year, over 70,000 Ukrainian refugees arrived in the country. The country is struggling to provide housing for economic migrants seeking work in the country as well as international refugees from other countries. In such a context, yesterday’s march was very remarkable.
