Irish met Queen Elizabeth protests

Irish met Queen Elizabeth protests. 44367.jpegOn the second day of a historic visit to the Irish Republic, Queen Elizabeth II planned on Wednesday to visit the site of a massacre 91 years ago that still evokes memories of fierce hostilities between Dublin and London.

The queen arrived in the Irish capital on Tuesday, brushing aside bomb threats as she embarked on the first visit to Dublin by a reigning British monarch since the creation of the Irish Free State in 1922.

So far, the visit has been heavy on both symbolism and security with thousands of police officers mobilized to protect the queen and streets cordoned off, restricting access to her.

As she arrived, the queen, 85, wore an outfit in the Irish color of emerald green, signaling what British and Irish officials have depicted as a mood of reconciliation between countries that fought a bitter independence war early in the 20th century, New York Times reports.

According to Press TV, hundreds of protestors in Ireland greeted Queen Elizabeth II upon her arrival in Dublin with slogans against the British rule on Northern Ireland and in favor of a united Ireland.

Demonstrations in the central streets of Dublin echoed with chanting in support of the union of the two Irelands while angry protestors burned UK flags.

Participants in the rallies chanted slogans including "Troops out," "No Royals" and "No one welcomes the Queen."

The visit comes as Ireland is witnessing an unprecedented security operation with the presence of more than 10,000 police and 120 British special police forces in charge of protecting Queen Elizabeth during her tour of the Republic of Ireland.
