Are the Irish racist

Dublin Fights Racism and Discrimination in Public Transport - Dublin, Ireland

Dublin City Council, in partnership with the Immigration Council of Ireland, the Equality Authority of Ireland and Public Transport Partners, published a document on June 27, 2014 entitled “For Inclusive Public Transport in Ireland”. The project was created as part of the One City - One People campaign in 2010 to reassure passengers and staff using Dublin's public transport that racism and discrimination will not be tolerated. The project has developed over the past 4 years under the direction of the Immigration Council of Ireland and works with public advertising campaigns, as well as in means of transportation, staff training and by recording racist incidents to raise awareness of interculturalism across the city. Christy Burke, Mayor of Dublin, said at the start of the project: "Migration is our future."

This advantage is important for the success of our city and its development. The anti-racism tool kit is at the heart of the partnership project work, which makes a clear statement throughout our city that we do not accept any form of discrimination. The toolkit will be a great investment in development and intercultural understanding. "Director General of the Migrants Council of Ireland, Denise Charlton added:" We are very grateful to our public transport partners who have campaigned with us over the past two years have worked together to ensure that victims of racism are not afraid to come out in public. Today we are starting the next step in our collaboration with the publication of “For Inclusive Public Transport in Ireland”. This ensures that employees are trained to respond to incidents and that the right means of recording are in place. ”The initiative was also recently presented at the Migration Cities Conference in Berlin, which is organized by the Maytree Foundation. Commenting on introducing the concept, Declan Hayden of the Dublin City Council's Office for Integration commented: “Thanks to intercultural cities, many cities across Europe are striving to forge a future in which culturally diverse societies will learn in harmony, respect and peace with one another to live. We are proud that Dublin is a pioneer among these cities and the One City - One People anti-racism and anti-discrimination campaign is an excellent example of this effort. "
