Unless you've been living under a pretty substantial boulder over the past week or two, you'll have heard about newly-elected President Trump's latest controversial act - the banning of certain members of society from entering the US via their airports.
This has, naturally, enraged the people of the world, kicking off an array of protests, riots, petitions and called for impeachment.
Since then, an emergency rally has been set up for Ireland, waiting to kick off this Thursday outside the American Embassy in Ballsbridge. As stated in the Facebook event page:
