NoBorder Dublin Action

Manos | 01.05.2004 12:23 | Globalisation | Migration | Cambridge | World

About 100 people took the streets of dublin today to protest about the EU's immigration policy, and in favour of open borders.

Shortly after 11 o'clock around 100 people, with puppets and some music started marching around Dublin to promote open borders. The march stopped at many points and short biographies of refugees were read. Some had claimed assylum successfully in Ireland, some had their applications rejected, other died trying to get into the EU.

The atmosphere was festive, and there were no incidents, except the occasional bystander trying to stir trouble. On the other hand, up to four police officers at the time were filming the small crowd, in the most provocative way.
