Dublin neighbours clean up racism in their community

CLEAN UP CAMPAIGN: Local volunteers who scrubbed off racist graffiti.

A GROUP of neighbours in Dublin have turned a horrific story of racist abuse into a touching example of community solidarity, when they banded together to support a family who had been subjected to a campaign of violent harassment.
A woman and her two children were forced to move out of their home in the city neighbourhood of Clondalkin after the tyres on her car were slashed and the message ‘blacks out’ was daubed in paint across the front windows of her house.
But many locals were horrified by what had happened, so they decided they would take a stand, and got together to scrub the graffiti from the house themselves.
The community campaign group People Before Profit said on Facebook, in a message that is being widely shared, that: “The acts of a few will never intimidate the many… The neighbours of the road are sickened by what’s happened and want the family to stay.”
