Dublin riots why

Rioting in Dublin left several buildings on fire and at least three people dead.

At least three people have been killed after rioting broke out in Dublin on October 27th. Police were called to the city’s north side after a group of protesters gathered outside a shop. The protesters were demonstrating against the sale of rabbits, which are traditionally considered a symbol of good luck in Chinese culture. However, some Chinese communities view rabbits as food animals.

The demonstration soon turned violent, with protestors attacking police officers with petrol bombs and fireworks. At least two officers were seriously injured in the clashes, and one man was found dead in an alleyway near where the violence broke out. Several buildings were set on fire by the rioters before they were eventually dispersed by police officers.
