United Against Racism Black Lives Matter Mayo demonstration cancelled

DUE to the very high level of interest leading to concerns that social distancing may be compromised, United Against Racism Mayo have decided to cancel the public demonstration due to be held on Saturday, June 6, at 3 p.m. on the Mall in Castlebar.

United Against Racism Mayo are also asking people to voice their opposition using the hashtag #EndDirectProvision to institutional racism in Ireland such as that experienced by residents of direct provision, asylum seekers, the Travelling community and Roma people.
