From 4 to 6 thousand people can take part in the action.
The first official visit of us President Donald Trump to Ireland, starting on Wednesday, will be accompanied by protests in many cities of the country. As specified the local TV channel RTE, demonstrations will be held in Dublin, Cork, Sligo, Galway, as well as near Shannon airport, where the head of the White House will arrive in the afternoon.
“With our action, we want to protest against the position of Donald Trump and his toxic policy. He does not deserve hospitality in Ireland,” said Memet Uludag, organizer of the demonstration Stop Trump Ireland, which began on Wednesday morning near the building of the Irish Parliament. The deployed banners condemn, in particular, Washington’s position on the climate agenda, as well as in Mexico and Palestine. According to the organizers, the action will be attended from 4 to 6 thousand people. In the second half of the day in another area of Central Dublin, the protesters launch into the sky six-meter blow-up doll, depicting Trump in the form of an angry kid in a diaper. Previously, this balloon was repeatedly used at demonstrations in London and New York.
By the arrival of the President of the United States near Shannon airport will be deployed “camping protest” of Shannonwatch organization, which for many years opposed the use of this air Harbor for transit stops of American transport aircraft delivering military cargo to the places of hostilities in the Middle East. Earlier, John Lannon said that their “peaceful camping” will be happy to host the Irish with their families, and will create all conditions for their two-day stay.
Another non-governmental organization – “Friends of the environment of Ireland” – has planned to deliver to the town of Dunbeg (Claire County) petition with the signatures of 100 thousand Irishmen, calling on trump to abandon landscaping on the territory of the Golf club Trump International Golf Links and Hotel. This luxury hotel complex on the Atlantic Ocean will be the residence of the head of the White House for the next two days. The American magnate bought it in 2014 for €15 million and carried out a large-scale reconstruction there. After Trump was elected President of the United States in January 2017, the complex in Dunbeg became the property of his sons – Eric and Donald Jr.
