No place in Ireland for racism and Islamophobia- Lynn Boylan MEP | Sinn F�in

7.2.16

No place in Ireland for racism and Islamophobia- Lynn Boylan MEP | Sinn F�in: One hundred years ago on this very location the Irish Republic was declared.

A Republic that guaranteed religious and civil liberties, equal rights and equal opportunities.

Today just like then we are taking a stand against oppression, a stand against inequality.

We are standing shoulder to shoulder in solidarity to show that there is NO place in Ireland for racism and Islamophobia.

There is no place in Ireland for HATE.

We are a welcoming nation because we are no strangers to migration.

We too have had our coffin ships, we too have been discriminated as immigrants, just like those who board boats today with no guarantee of survival so too did our ancestors.

And just like those who flee for safety from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq are victims of a situation not of their making so too were those who left Irish shores.
