Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Palestine’s Blood, Israel’s Profit: ‘The Lab’ national film tour with director Yotam Feldman (28 March – 2 April)

labtourIn late March and early April the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign and several other organsiations are hosting special national film screening tour featuring the award winning new documentary about the military-industrial complex in Israel which explores how it is helping to turn Palestine’s blood into Israel’s profit.

This series of FREE SCREENINGS will take place in the following dates. All screenings will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Yotam Feldman who is on a tour of Ireland.

Saturday 28 March – Lurgan: 3pm, Ashburn Hotel, Lurgan
Monday 30 March – Galway: 7pm, Cairnes Theatre, National University of Ireland Galway
Tuesday 31 March – Cork: 7pm, Lecture Theatre G.05, Western Gateway Building, Western Road, University College Cork
Wednesday 1 April – Dublin: 7pm, Thomas Davis Theatre, Arts Block, Trinity College Dublin
Thursday 2 April – Limerick: 8pm, Pery’s Hotel, Glentworth Street, Limerick

The film reveals that Palestine has become a gigantic ‘Laboratory’ full of live subjects, and how this transformed the Israeli military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank from a burden to a marketable, highly profitable, national asset; something which many Western governments and institutions – including our own government and several Irish universities – are complicit in. As Feldman says, “The world is hypocritical. I mean, the same governments, in Europe especially, which are criticizing Israel for the use of military force against civilians, for collateral damage etc, are the same governments which are buying weapons from Israel, which are allowing Israel to produce new weapons and use new weapons in Gaza.”

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.
