IrishCentral will stream live from Dublin as Irish Stand marks the first anniversary of Trump's election.
The first anniversary of the election of President Donald Trump is to be marked tonight, Wednesday, November 8, in Dublin, in what is being dubbed by organizers as a “night of resistance.”
Held in association with the Irish Refugee Council and their projects working with young people in Ireland’s Direct Provision system, Irish Stand is the second event of its kind to be held by the grassroots movement which supports civil rights protections for all immigrants.
Last St. Patrick’s Day 2017 in New York, over 1,500 people gathered in the Riverside Church in Manhattan to take an “Irish Stand” against the anti-immigrant rhetoric pushed by the many Irish Americans within Trump’s administration.
