Anastasia Crickley, Vice-Chair of the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, addresses the launch of the ENAR Ireland report 'Afrophobia in Ireland: Racism against People of African Descent' by Dr Lucy Michael

Amazing reception for Afrophobia report launched today

Wow! Well the launch was a success in media terms, and the most engaged launch event I have ever attended. A huge thank you to everyone who helped us to get these stories into the Irish media and worldwide on Twitter and Facebook, and especially to all those who came to the launch and shared their own experiences of racism.
