Take one important action:
Thank politicians supporting the Occupied Territories Bill

We received some absolutely huge news this week as Fianna Fail announced its intention to support Sen. Frances Black’s bill to ban trade with Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestine. This shift of position is a result of the lobbying carried out by all of you – a real victory for people power! – so we would like to sincerely thank you.

With Fianna Fail’s support, this bill will pass in the Seanad, moving on to the committee stage – this will be an historic first step in outlawing the profiteering from the proceeds of illegally colonised land.

Those who have pledged to support the bill will now come under huge pressure from the Israel lobby machine – so it’s hugely important that we take the time to thank them for their principled stance in favour of international law. They need to know that the Irish public support their decision!

So, this is very important, we ask you to take a few minutes to thank Senators and TDs from Fianna Fail, Sinn Féin, Labour, Solidarity, People Before Profit, Green Party, Social Democrats and Independents who  have pledged to support the bill.

ABOUT US

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign was set up in late 2001 by a group of established Irish human rights and community activists, academics and journalists who were deeply concerned with the current situation in the Occupied Territories. In partnership with Palestinians now living in Ireland the IPSC was formed to provide a voice for Palestine in Ireland.

We are an independent, non-party political organisation, run by volunteers all committed to a just and sustainable peace in the Middle East.

WHAT WE DO

The IPSC campaigns for justice for the Palestinian people, through raising public awareness about the human rights abuses in the occupied territories, the violations of international law and the historical causes of the injustices to the Palestinians that lie at the heart of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

The IPSC lobbies the Irish government and the EU, campaigns on the streets and urges for a vigorous Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign similar to the one that played a part in ending Apartheid in South Africa. The IPSC also holds public talks with Israeli and Palestinian speakers and various cultural and fundraising events.
