Incredible stunts as same sex lovers crowded out to stem the “hate”rampage in an avalanche of kiss bouts. The protest was dubbed “Shift the Hate Away” and reverberates the slang term “shift”, an Irish synonym for kissing.
It’s all about a fear of society reprisals against an alien culture. The protesters demanded robust legislations to give judges powers to deal with “instances of both verbal and physical abuse.”
Activists claim that the anti hate legislation currently in place – the Incitement to Hatred Act 1989 – is does not conformation with their yearnings. The Act had led to five convictions since its introduction.
