Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Public Meeting Oct 29 in Dublin – ‘Gaza: Eyewitness to Destruction and Resistance with Dr. Yaser Alashqar’

webyaserposterThe Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign is honoured to be hosting a meeting featuring an eyewitness account of the Israeli destruction in Gaza, and to the heroic resistance and steadfastness of the Palestinian people in its aftermath. The meeting will take place on Wednesday 29th October, at 7pm in Wynn’s Hotel, Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1. All are welcome to attend.

Palestinian academic Dr. Yaser Alashqar went home to Gaza as soon as the Israeli slaughter there ended, and collected eyewitness reports from people on the ground, as well as himself bearing witness to the devastation wrought upon the population of 1.8 million people. In this meeting he will present images and testimony to the brutality of the onslaught.

Dr. Alashqar will also speak about ways in which Palestinians are continuing to resist Israeli occupation, apartheid and colonisation, and how international civil society can help achieve justice and lasting peace in the region

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.
