Dun Laoghaire Rathdown councillors have passed a motion to change the name of Orwell Road where the Russian Embassy is located to 'Independent Ukraine Road.' Following Latvia, Norway, Albania and Lithuania. Orwell Road is from Rathgar in Dublin 6 (a part of Dublin City Council) to Churchtown. The Russian Embassy is in the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Section of the road. Henry McKean visited the Russian Embassy on Orwell Road and met locals and protesters. Henry asked about the proposed name change and what do they consider a protest to be? Is graffiti and vandalism an effective protest, or a boycott of gas and oil? (The locals will have the final say with a plebiscite about the name change.)
