Racism: an all Ireland problem

The Irish Times reported yesterday that “Some 70 racist incidents were reported to the National Consultative Committee on Racism and Interculturalism (NCCRI) between May and October of this year, compared with 42 incidents for the previous six months and 46 incidents in the corresponding period last year”. Today, Nigel Dodds condemns the spread of racist attacks to North Belfast.
