Minister Paschal Donohoe confronted on street by anti-vaccine protestors

In a video shared on social media and viewed by INTRA, protestors can be seen aggressively shouting at the Minister, labelling him such things as a “murdering c**t”.

They also shouted “mass genocide”, along with “God is watching, he sees all good and evil”.

Donohoe responded by saying “there’s no need to raise your voice” and calmly walked away from the demonstrators.

A number of high profile politicians condemned the incident on social media.

Fine Gael Senator John McGahon was among those highlighting the abuse on Twitter.

“It’s highly likely that the people in this video were radicalised online,” McGahon said.

The video has prompted further questions surrounding the safety of politicians, particularly after the murder of English MP David Amess just two weeks ago.
