Hilary Clinton is visiting Ireland to talk about human rights, but some believe her message to be hypocritical. The Daily Shift’s Aaron Mc Nicholas reports…
Support for Palestinian human rights and condemnation of the United States’ respect for international law were on the agenda for protestors in Dublin last night.
The demonstration, led by the Irish Anti-War Movement, brought the protesters a short distance away from Dublin Castle, where US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was dining. Gardaí blocked the protesters from marching on Dublin Castle’s grounds.
One protester had an American flag confiscated after attempting to burn it.
