Black Lives Matter Vigil to take place online tomorrow

Democrats Abroad Ireland will join with Americans and individuals around the world tomorrow, June 2nd to hold an online Black Lives Matter Vigil from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm.

People across the country are invited to join in solidarity via video conference from the safety of their own homes, due to the pandemic.

During the three hour vigil, Democrats Abroad guests, members, and allies will be able to speak out against the atrocities happening in the United States right now.

Carija Ihus, Chair of Democrats Abroad Ireland said: “I’ve seen the video of the murder of George Floyd and have been watching with heartbreak and outrage as the protests have erupted in my home state of Georgia and across the nation.

“I lost a classmate, Marcus, to a police shooting 4 years ago in my hometown of Carrollton. This hits very close to home. I can totally relate to the anger.

“Americans here and in the US want to know why another family is being devastated by police brutality.

“We are speaking out and demand that the killers be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
