Call on CRH, Ireland's largest company, to divest from the Israeli Mashav Group who is involved the construction of the Apartheid Wall.
In August 2010 the IPSC launched this pledge, signed by over 215 Irish creative and performing artists, whereby they undertake to boycott the Israeli state under present circumstances.
Support the awareness-raising to expose the contamination of the global diamond market with Israeli "blood diamonds".
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.
