Around 2,000 people showed up to a Black Lives Matter Black Lives Matter protest outside the US Embassy in Dublin’s Ballsbridge on Saturday.
Organisers demanded an end to direct provision services that are currently offered in Ireland.
As people are warned to expect a so-called “new normal” that includes stringent social distancing, thousands of people turned out to completely ignore all guidelines and hold a Black Lives Matter protest outside Dublin’s US Embassy.
The protest was over George Floyd’s death after the black man was murdered by a white cop who literally knelt on his neck for close to 9 minutes.
Meanwhile, the government have condemned the protest saying that there was other ways to do it, including Harris saying that they could merely write to the US Embassy. Many on social media are saying that these protestors could push our unwinding back due to their lack of social distancing.
