As the Black Lives Matter movement perseveres in the United States, riots and protests against white supremacy and police brutality continue.


In solidarity with them, as well as in protest against racism and oppression in Ireland, a number of demonstrations are due to take place across the country in the coming days.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic, attendees are asked to stick to social distancing rules and wear masks where possible. They are also advised to bring water and sunscreen.

If you are showing symptoms of Coronavirus, you should not attend a demonstration.
