WE’RE TAKING THE EU TO COURT
And we need your support to do it!

Earlier this year a coalition of European Palestine solidarity groups attempted to use the European Citizens’ Initiative mechanism as a means to voice out our call for action against all illegal settlements. This is a mechanism under which 1 million European citizens can compel a debate on an issue of concern. In this case we wanted to see a proper debate on the EU’s legal obligations towards non-recognition of, and non-assistance to, illegal settlements in occupied territories, including Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestine.

However, the European Commission refused to even register our Initiative! It is clear, the Commission doesn’t want the issue of Israel’s illegal settlements on the agenda and instead wants to keep providing political cover for these war crimes.

Yet we refuse to be silenced. So we are asking you to help us take the Commission to the EU Court of Justice to challenge its complicity with fundamental rights violations.

Unfortunately, however, we need to raise at least €10,000 to pay legal costs (democracy isn’t cheap it seems) and you can help by making a donation to our crowd-funding appeal here. Thank you!

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.
