The Open Borders ‘anti-racism’ Cult have caused the rise of the *Four Roish*#Oughterard #Ballinamore #Achill . How? By erecting borders and thinking like racists.
They’ve tried very hard to put a blanket (border) over the whole asylum seeker/Direct Provision issue. They’ve been lobbying Government for hate speech law so what people are allowed say and therefore think about the asylum seeker/Direct Provision issue
will be contained strictly within the bounds (border) of legislation.

They’ve never met them but the limits (border) of their ideology sensed trespassers when the people of #Oughterard #Ballinamore #Achill protested.

Globally there are more than 65 million displaced people/ #refugees. A vast majority of these are feeing wars, conflicts and gross human rights abuses. Most of the refugees are hosted by countries outside Europe. /1

Some refugee hosting nations are among the poorer countries. #Turkey #Lebanon #Bangladesh #Jordan #Egypt #Sudan #Pakistan #Uganda #Iran #Ethiopia host majority of the global #refugees /2
When someone is fleeing war or torture or human rights abuses, the first and foremost duty of humanity is to open our doors to refugees. No good to let people die at our doorsteps while we discuss where and how #AsylumSeekers should be hosted.

How exactly can our campaign against the inhumanity of direct provision be described as far right?

The media, the political elite and their state apparatus are desperate to turn this into a debate about race or a debate...…
between left or right. That's how they will split the community and the people of Ireland to push their flawed political agenda against the will of the people.

It's not about any of those things.

If you study the origins of the human race all human....

beings came from the same place.

We all deserve to be treated with equal dignity and respect.

This is a campaign for social justice. Building a direct provision centre where up to 300 people are holed up in ghetto conditions on the edge of our town...

Finally a media outlet that has listened to us -this piece doesn't carry all detail/info but it does finally out Patrick Curran who is racist spokesperson/organiser of #Oughterard campaign & who has worked closely with far-right agitators -Curran is STILL involved in the campaign
#Oughterard still have lots of work to do weeding out ties to far-right & racists The fact that far-right were heavily involved in #Oughterard from get go is a huge wake up call to this country. The racism, Islamophobia & far-right prop that was spewed EVERYWHERE was frightening!
The far-right were also involved in #Lisdoonvarna, #Moville, #Rooskey etc.. They latch on to a few racist, like minded locals and drive the narrative. Anyone who criticises them or calls them out, is accused of calling the whole village or town racist - similar tactics everywhere
