#RefugeesWelcome Unions Say No to Racism

Developed as part of a long-term alliance between various local, regional and international NGOs in Ireland following a rise in deaths at sea on the Mediterranean, the #RefugeesWelcome campaign has become iconic and international in its use. In this instance, SIPTU developed a poster for wider use with union members across Ireland and to tackle any potential hate speech or xenophobia.
