Protesters throw coffin into Dublin river to coincide with funeral of Elizabeth II

This Monday, coinciding with the state funeral and burial of Elizabeth II in London, anti-imperialist demonstrators have thrown a coffin with the legend “RIP British Empire” into the River Liffey in the center of the capital of Ireland.

The protest action is part of a demonstration against the British crown called by Anti-Imperialist Action Ireland and is intended to recall that staged in 1897 by the left-wing Irish nationalist leader James Connolly coinciding with the visit of Queen Victoria.

The demonstration has been called to protest “against the humiliating worship of the English monarchy by the ruling class of the Free State” of Ireland.
