Demonstrators took to the streets of Dublin on Tuesday, protesting the European court ruling, which allows employers to ban the Muslim headscarf in workplace.

The protest, called by the Muslim Sisters of Eire (MSOE) and the European Network against Racism Ireland (ENAR), was outside the European Commission’s office in Ireland.

In a press release, the Dublin-based organization, run by Irish Muslim women, expressed frustration with the Commission’s Irish office, saying the response to requests for a meeting had so far been ‘dismissive.’

The European Court of Justice (ECJ), last week, dismissed the cases of two women, from France and Belgium, who wanted to wear the hijab at work.
