Diary on Irish racism
This is an unofficial account of some events, political decisions, and actions related to the rise in racism in Ireland from 1997 to 2000.
Belmondo Wantete, an electrical engineer from the Congo, has lived in Ireland with his wife and young children for two and a half years, and has resident status. Since May 1st 1998 he was subjected to the most appalling harassment and racism by the gardaí. Belmondo was vindicated in court on 13th of October, 2000.
Ekundayo Joseph Omoniyi was forced to flee from his native Nigeria because of his opposition to the military regime in that country. His application for asylum was turned down, he was seized by the Gardái who attempted to forcibly deport him. He passively resisted this illegal deportation and as a result is now charged with assaulting the Gardai. Proceedings against Ekundayo on charges arising from his appeals case were dropped since late May '00. This shows how state racism in Ireland can be fought against and defeated. Congratulations to all of those who worked to support Ekundayo and highlight his case.
Steve Oladeja was a policeman in Nigeria. He had moral objections to enforcing the murderous policies of the then government, and was imprisoned in horrific conditions after voicing his objections, and refusing orders
