round-tables-plant-olives

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign has learned that Galway-based Irish chef JP McMahon, who was scheduled to take part in an Israeli Foreign Ministry-sponsored event in Tel Aviv this November, has withdrawn his participation. McMahon, along with several other international chefs, was due to attend ‘AMEX Round Tables’, an elite culinary festival sponsored by American Express, Dan Hotels and others, including the Israeli Foreign Ministry which flies top chefs to Israel for the event to ‘gastro-wash’ Israel’s image – the aim being to divert attention from its colonial occupation of Palestine and the apartheid regime it forces the Palestinian people to … Continue reading

War on Palestinian rights: Become a contributor to help the IPSC’s work for justice

b (5)

Dear friends, After fifty years of the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, the situation for the Palestinian people has never been as bad. At least 60 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli occupation forces since the start of this year, many of them extra-judicially executed or shot during protests. Thousands have been injured. Hundreds of Palestinians, including children, have been imprisoned and likely tortured. Military raids on Palestinian communities occur every day and night, as do attacks by illegal Israeli settlers. People in Gaza are facing into another winter under Israel’s cruel and illegal siege living, while fishermen … Continue reading

Below is a statement issued by the four deportees which includes a call for you to write to the Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney (minister@dfa.ie) voicing your concerns about this arbitrary expulsion of human rights activist to stop them from bearing witness to the effects of Israel’s apartheid regime.

3 Minutes for Palestine: Write to Minister for Foreign Affairs urging Irish action over Gaza crisis

3mingaza

Dear friends, The situation in Gaza has become unbearable for the two million people living under Israel’s decade-long illegal siege. Just last week the UN declared that “the ‘unliveability’ threshold has already been passed” in the strip and this has been compounded by Israel’s policy of reducing electricity supply to a few hours every day. For a decade of cruel and illegal siege, for three devastating criminal assaults, for near-daily ceasefire violations, and for making Gaza unlivable, the Israeli state has faced not a single sanction from the international community. This impunity must end, so we are asking you to … Continue reading
