Pics: Anti-war protesters burn US flag in Dublin city centre

Protesters were stopped by Gardaí from marching to Dublin Castle where Hillary Clinton and foreign ministers are being hosted at a dinner.

THE IRISH ANTI-War Movement (IAWM) held a demonstration this evening to protest US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit.

Clinton is visiting to attend an OSCE meeting in Dublin with foreign ministers to discuss cooperation in promoting peace, human rights and economic growth.

Earlier today the IAWM said the protest was called to draw attention to the contradictions between the stated aims of the OSCE regarding concerns for human rights and security and the actions of many of the participating countries.

Protesters were stopped from marching to Dublin castle where Clinton and the visiting foreign ministers are being hosted at a dinner.

Gardaí said this evening that no one was arrested at the demonstration which has been described as small in numbers.
