100 years of injustice & 50 years of occupation is enough!
It’s time for freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people!
Show your solidarity with Palestine!

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign has called a national demonstration to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the ongoing brutal Israeli military occupation and illegal colonisation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza, and 100 years of Palestinian resistance to the injustice that began with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 under which British imperialism declared that Palestine could be colonised by the Zionist movement at the expense of the indigenous Palestinian people.

When and Where:
Saturday 10th June, Dublin.
Assemble at 1pm at the Spire on O’Connell Street, Dublin 1*. March to the Israeli Embassy.

Speakers:
Kholoud Ajarma (Palestinian refugee rights activist)
Fatin Al Tamimi (IPSC Chairperson)
Richard Boyd-Barrett TD (People Before Profit)
Mary Lou McDonald TD (Sinn Féin)
