iReport.ie, the new online Racist Incident Recording System, has logged 60 reports detailing racism in less than one month, says anti-racist organisation ENAR Ireland. “This is a significantly higher rate than our previous recording system, and a much higher rate than An Garda Siochana, who recorded just 19 incidents in the first 3 months of 2013”
“The reports show that migrants and minority ethnic groups, including Travellers, are being subjected to worrying levels of racism and discrimination. People are reporting all kinds of racism, from subtle forms of discrimination to concerted social exclusion, from shouting and name calling in the street to intimidation, spitting, sexual harassment and organised violent assault with weapons”
Shane O’Curry, Director of ENAR Ireland, the Irish network against rascism.
