National Day Of Protest Against State Racism

Give Asylum Seekers the right to stay and work- End deportations.

Many Asylum Seekers from around Ireland face deportation by the Irish state. Last year six mass deportations along with individual deportations took place to unsafe, war torn and corrupt countries were lives are in danger. This has to STOP Michael McDowell and the government cannot be let away with this anymore.

The Immigration system is biased and corrupt, asylum seekers are forced to live under the direct provision programme which means they are forced to live on E19 per week and are forbid from working and studying. This needs to be taken out of Michael McDowell's and the Justice Departments hands and asylum seekers should be given the right to stay and work and live without fear of deportation from the state.

Asylum Seekers from such countries as Nigeria,Somalia,Congo and Afghanistan are getting deportation orders and are being refused asylum they will be there to protest against the states blatant racism and discrimination that people are facing and have faced.

A national day Of protest against state Racism and deportations will not change the fact that there has not been, nor is there ever likely to be, any deporation of asylum seekers in accordance with Irelands acceptance of International law in this area and the specific principle of non-refoulement.

Ireland is prohibited from deporting asylum seekers and/or refugees, just as it has been since becoming a signatory of the 1951 Convention on Refugees and will continue to be prohibited from deporting asylum seekers and/or refugees, until such time as it withdraws from the Convention, if ever.

Jack,
You said:

What about the Dublin convention, Jack? Does that not entitle any person who passes through another first safe country before they arrive in Ireland, to be deported? This is why Ireland is not prohibited from deporting asylum seekers who arrive in another first safe country before Ireland.

Hello,

I am not trying to "kid" anyone.

Where the Dublin Convention applies, the individual is removed to the State that will process the claim. As Ireland is not processing the claim, the individual is not classified as an asylum seeker in this jurisdiction and the removal does not infringe the non-refoulement principle.

Well, lets put it this way: When they haven't landed in ireland first then why are they applying for asylum here if they know that the dublin convention exists?

Interesting story from a blog

Juan Carlos Ruiz, the coordinator of the predominantly Hispanic rally of 40,000 held March 7 on Capitol Hill, said that only one senator had shown up there, without speaking: Richard J. Durbin, an Illinois Democrat. The next day, Mr. Ruiz said, when he and his 14-year-old son stopped by the Irish gathering of about 2,400 and realized that the speakers included Senators Edward M. Kennedy, John McCain, as well as Senators Clinton and Schumer, his son asked, "Why didn't the senators come to our rally?"

Cant answer that as I am not one of the individuals concerned although clearly, it has little to do with asylum seeking per se.

I would point out that the Dublin Convention does not just cover those who have yet to claim asylum. It also covers those who have already claimed and failed and those who would attempt to lodge multiple applications using multiple identities.
