Over 1,000 people to protest Donald Trump's #TravelBan in Dublin on Thursday

Will you join the protest?

There's been plenty of social media activism in Ireland since US president Donald J. Trump came into power last week, but later this week people will take to the streets.

The new leader of the free world has caused outrage with his new policies including the travel ban on Muslims and refugees which has been a huge news story over the last few days.

President Trump signed an order which means people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen travelling to America via Ireland are likely to be detained here.

United Against Racism Ireland has reacted to that by organising a protest rally outside the US Embassy in Dublin on Thursday evening. Here's the location.

The Facebook event page (No to Trump's Travel Ban on Muslims & Refugees) has over 1,200 people pledging to go while another 2,000 people are interested in the event

It's scheduled to take place between 6:00pm and 7:30pm and you can find the event page by clicking here. It'll be interesting to see how many people show up.
