ICTU to make rugby fans aware of Fiji 'dictatorship'

Rugby fans heading to Thomond Park in Limerick for the Ireland v Fiji game tomorrow are to be targeted by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.

The organisation will be handing out leaflets outside the stadium as part of the campaign to win greater freedom for the Pacific island people.

ICTU said every aspect of life for the Fijian people "is controlled by the country's dictatorship" and is calling for rugby fans tomorrow to show their support for the Fijian people through social media by tweeting hashtag fairplayfiji to @FTUC1, the Fijian Trade Union Confederation.

ICTU said it will not attempt to stop the game.
