Kildare Youth Theatre Against Racism

Following the recent and abhorrent tragedies witnessed in America, and in general repulsion against racism both at home and abroad, a socially-distanced, peaceful Black Lives Matter protest took place in Newbridge over the weekend. Over 100 people, all wearing masks, gathered two meters apart at the St. Conleth's Park car park behind Newbridge Town Hall. A collection of Kildare Youth Theatre members, of all ages, as well as Artistic Director Peter Hussey, participated in the protest. Posters and banners in hand, participants aimed to highlight the importance of anti-racist behaviour in our local communities, as well as improving the rights of those in Direct Provision in Ireland.
