This afternoon.

Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

Under the pale male gaze of WB Yeats, muffled-up members of ‘Feminists Against Fascists’ (above) assemble outside Leinster House at the reportedly state-sanctioned Solidarity Alliance against Racism and Fascism (SARF) Rally for Peace on Earth and Against The Politics of Hate.

Confusingly, this Santifa rally is a counter-rally to a Protect Free Speech demonstration (pics 2 and 3) across Kildare street happening at  the same time organised by Yellow Vest Ireland.

One thing we can all agree on.

The ski mask is this season’s go to accessory for the stylish millennial.

Fallen2 Fallen3 Fallen4 Fallen6The Fallen: 9000 sand stencils on the D-Day landing beach of Arromanche in Normandy: a collaboration between British artists Andy Moss and Jamie Wardle of Sand In Your Eye (along with hundreds of volunteers who turned up from all over the world to help) in honour of last Saturday’s International Day of Peace.

It does not propose to be a celebration or condemnation, simply a statement of fact and tribute to life and its premature loss.

Each stencil (all of which were washed away by the tide within hours of completion) represents one of the 9000 Allied and German troops and French civilians who died on June 6th 1944.
