The Trump visit has been cancelled. The Green Party has welcomed the news and is calling off the protest of his visit as a result.
Green Party leader Eamon Ryan had this to say:
“The visit came out of the blue and has now been cancelled in the same erratic way. We are glad he is not coming. Trump’s positions and demeanour on every issue of the day, from climate to women’s rights, from international relations to political decency, represent the opposite of Green and indeed Irish values.
It’s hard to know why the trip has been cancelled at this stage, but we are nonetheless glad that such a costly, potentially divisive and undignified event will now not take place.”
The Green Party has been working with other parties and groups in the run up to the planned visit, and will continue this cooperation in the event another visit is scheduled.
While the protest is over, we will continue to strive for changes that are opposed to the views and values of Trump; changes that value diversity, climate action, equality and much more. If you want to get involved with us click here.
