Failure of Occupied Territories Bill to pass is a prescription for more of the same old inaction

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) expresses disappointment with last night’s failure by the Irish Seanad to pass the Occupied Territories Bill, which seeks to stop Irish trade with illegal settlements in occupied territories. The bill, sponsored by Senator Frances Black, and supported by Sinn Fein, Labour and independent Senators, but opposed by the main government party Fine Gael and largest opposition party Fianna Fáil, failed to pass its second reading, and a decision was taken to adjourn a vote until sometime before July. We urge everyone to keep putting pressure on politicians to support the bill in the meantime. Despite … Continue reading

The protest was well attended with many members of the Irish parliament attending including TDs Dessie Ellis, Maureen O’Sullivan, Pat Buckley, Richard Boyd Barret, Gino Kenny, Paul Murphy, Aengus Ó Snodaigh, Maurice Quinlivan, John Brady and Joan Collins, and Senators David Norris, Padraig MacLochlainn, Alice Mary Higgins, Niall Ó Donnghaile and Grace O’Sullivan. … Continue reading

Ban Settlement Goods: Take Action to Support the Occupied Territories Bill

UPDATE 2 (31st Jan 2018): Unfortunately the bill was debated but not voted on, and a vote has been adjourned until sometime before July. It is worth noting that it was supported by Sinn Fein, Labour and many independent Senators, but opposed by the main government party Fine Gael and largest opposition party Fianna Fáil. Despite welcoming the strong and unequivocal condemnation of illegal Israeli settlements by all contributors to the debate, including the Táiniste and Foreign Minister Simon Coveney, we believe the failure of the Seanad to pass this bill at this juncture is, sadly, merely a prescription for … Continue reading

Israel’s blacklist of human rights orgs is appalling, anti-democratic, and a badge of honour for BDS

Although long suspected, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) yesterday learned via news reports that the organisation is one of 20 human rights advocacy groups on an official Israeli state blacklist, meaning that its members are banned from entering Israel, and thus, from entering Israeli-occupied Palestine. The Israeli apartheid regime fears solidarity so much it seeks to stop us from visiting our friends and colleagues in the Palestine-Israel region. Although appalling, saddening and manifestly anti-democratic, the IPSC views its appearance on this list as a badge of honour and a vindication of our work in solidarity with the people of Palestine … Continue reading
