Asylum seekers threathen hunger strike

Asylum seekers are set to protest after it was confirmed today that more than 150 of them are to be moved from the Mosney accommodation centre in Co Meath.

Some of the foreign nationals are now threatening to go on a hunger strike and to hold other demonstrations ahead of the move next week.

Many of the 800 residents at the facility at the former holiday camp at Laytown have lived there for years.

Yeah I heard they didn't want to move down to central Dublin as there were no parking places for the cars!!!
