Justice for Toyotsi

category dublin | crime and justice | opinion/analysis author Wednesday December 12, 2012 21:34author by Con Carroll Report this post to the editors

stand in solidarity

do we remember some years ago. a African youth who with his friends was out playing football. if my mind recall it was during the Easter holidays. some years ago. today in Dublin the jury gave its verdict into the murder of this youth. we cant afford to be smug and sit back and say what can we do about it. becoming full with apathy. we cant afford to remain indifferent. with attitude it doesn't affect me. I'm ok to hell with the rest

today December 12 2012. I was listening to RTE news. the agenda on the item. was the British Government response into rthe inquiry, of the murder of Pat Finucane.. Belfast solicitor. the next topic on the agenda. was about the murder of a African youth. who was out playing football with his friends. the year escapes my memory. I do recall reading about overt racist terminology been used against Toyotsi. when he was stabbed to death. the person who was involved in this stabbing has since deceased. Justice Barry White asked the jury, to find the deceased other brother not guilty of having known that his brother was in a vehicle carrying a weapon on his person. which was to be used in the stabbing. standing with people in solidarity who are asylum seekers in Ireland aint sexy. or hip. no platorms of civil awards when you are not getting state funding. there is no civil servants employment in this area. obsecene wages, for going along with the dep of justice agenda. in denying people the right to appeal on the right o stay in Ireland. one becomes a thorn in the side of the political class. media and liberal political agenda. for daring to side with people who are asylum seekers. people are expected to live in hostel abodes, living on 19.00 euro per week. waiting for a decision to be made. as we know are seeing the reality's of the Thatcherite Merkel. agend in the budget of 2013. there will always be some group, wqrking class community to scape goat. as we have witnessed in the last week. of people protesting about cuts. who care for their loved ones and families. we must resist this policical right wing agenda. a injustice to one is a injustice to all. the fingers pont to the elite political economic class. with their elected friends.
