Ireland, immigration and the fury of the masses

Ella Whelan on the Dublin riots and their aftermath.

Topics Polemics Politics

Last November, Dublin was in flames. Protests against immigration turned into a riot and videos of the carnage went around the world. The inexcusable violence has been leapt on by an Irish elite desperate to demonise all opposition to immigration and push through new hate-crime laws. But as Ella Whelan explains in our latest video polemic, this dismissive approach is no longer going to cut it. Irish people don’t hate migrants. They have no time for the thuggish far right, either. But they are furious about the establishment’s handling of immigration. And they are not going to be quiet anymore. Watch, share and let us know what you think.
