It has come to our attention that there is a demonstration against discrimination in Killarney planned for this Friday – Saint Patrick’s Day.
The Travellers in the town are highlighting the ongoing endemic discrimination that they experience on a daily basis.
Quite clearly a lot of people still think it’s normal and acceptable to discriminate and refuse their services to people based on their ethnic identity. This constitutes a blanket ban. It is racist and unacceptable.
And for those like-minded people we are calling on you to come out and give your support to the Travellers in Killarney on Friday.
It’s great to see Travellers getting organised and mobilised against racism and you have Pavee Point’s full support.
