Statement from NCP
29 November 2023
Here at NCP, just like the rest of the country, we were shocked and horrified by the events that took place on Thursday, 23rd. First, the stabbings of innocent children and their carer, which was followed by the shocking riots in Dublin City centre.
Our thoughts continue to be with the children and their carer. We wish them well and pray for their speedy recovery. We also commend the bravery of those who intervened and risked their lives to save others.
In the aftermath of the riots, hateful language was freely used online, including under NCP’s social media posts. We know that many people in our community are feeling scared and unsafe but we would like to let you know that we are here for you.
New Communities Partnership stands against violence, hate crime & racism of any kind. We will continue to support our migrant communities and stand together to foster a more inclusive society. Hate towards one of us is hate towards all of us.
Join us tomorrow (Monday, November 27) at 1pm at the GPO in solidarity with the victims and everyone affected by the Thursday events. This event is being organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.
