They will tour Ireland from Monday 9th to Saturday 14th May.

Thur 12: BELFAST – Time & Venue TBC
Fri 13: DERRY – Time & Venue TBC
Sat 14: DUBLINNakba Day March & Moving Gallery

Their talk will be a first-hand account of the key issues regarding Palestinian refugees, from the 1947-49 Nakba when over 700,000 Palestinians were forcibly dispossessed and exiled from their homeland to facilitate the creation of the state of Israel up to the refugee crisis of the present today. There will also be presenting an exhibition of photographs chronicling the current plight, the ‘ongoing Nakba’, of Palestinian refugees.

Today there are more than five million Palestinian refugees, many who are refugees for a second or third time, all denied their international law-mandated Right of Return by Israel. Palestinian refugees are once again caught up in the crisis, many of them risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean to flee the brutal civil war in Syria, endemic poverty and discrimination in Lebanon, and Israel’s cruel illegal siege of Gaza. Come along to find out more, and to see what we can do to help them get home.

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.
