Galway Anti Racism Network accused of discrimination
Five former members of the Galway Anti Racism Network (GARN for short)  have come forward to reveal that they were discriminated against and expelled from the organisation for holding pro life views.

Luke Silke from Tuam, a former member of GARN said he was expelled from the organisation and told he wasn't welcome any longer because of his “pro-life” views ... "I simply proposed that we should all work together in harmony, regardless of our opinions on abortion, to try and end racism in Galway . They informed me that they were ‘not interested’ in conversation and blocked me from their Facebook page. They also highlighted that they do not invite pro life people to their events. I find it ironic that GARN are discriminating against us based on our political views. I find it horrific that they would exclude non-nationals from their anti-racism group based on the fact that these people were pro-life" explained Mr Silke .

Another expelled pro life member , Kristina Vykukal , said she too was expelled from GARN for suggesting they take a neutral stance on abortion. Ms Vykukal added that the Chairman of GARN Joseph Loughnane accused her of hating women after she was pictured standing outside an abortion clinic in Galway with a sign that read "for help in a crisis pregnancy come talk to us".

Ms Vykukal explained .. "Last week, I stood peacefully outside a facility in Galway City which performs abortions. One of our signs read 'for help in a crisis pregnancy come talk to us' . Joseph Loughnane , Chair of Galway Anti Racism Network shared a photograph of me on his Facebook page under the caption “we still have to deal with people who hate women, here’s a line-up of them in Westside today " .
 
In 2016 , GARN's Chairman Joseph Loughnane made national news when he had to be escorted from the Galway United Football Stadium for repeatedly flying a Pro Abortion Banner and was handed an indefinite ban by club chairman Jonathan Corbett . It followed complaints to the Galway FA by a group of female fans who regularly attend home games but took issue with Mr Loughnane's pro abortion banner which contravened the Association's political messages ban.   
 
  
 
Mr Loughnane who is a political candidate for People Before Profit in Galway City Central describes himself as "half Irish , half pakistani , a born muslim" . Loughnane says he did regular volunteer work for a controversial Islamic group called Cage in London . Representatives of Cage , Moazzam Begg and Asim Qureshi have expressed support for an Islamic caliphate, including precise implementation of Sharia law. Qureshi expressed support for the principle of death by stoning for adultery and other death penalties prescribed by Islamic law "as long as all due process elements are met".  In 2012 , Mr Loughnane was fined for assault against two members of the Gardai at a protest .
 
 

Galway Anti Racism Network is a listed member of ENAR Ireland (European Network Against Racism) . ENAR Ireland's CEO Shane O'Curry wrote to the citizen's assembly in support of introducing abortion to Ireland . ENAR Europe is a Brussels based lobby group funded jointly by George Soros open society initiative for europe and the EU Commission .

It just goes to show the power and sway that ANTIFA as a movement has almost worldwide. What is concerning if not downright worrying is it's influence on certain political parties.
