Netanyahu’s Victory Means It’s Time To Intensify BDS: 7 Simple Actions You Can Take To Support Justice For Palestine

Mass murdering war criminal, Benjamin Netanyahu, the butcher of Gaza, has emerged victorious in the Israeli general election, foisted to victory on the back of racist campaigning and a pledge for the permanent occupation of Palestine . As the IPSC pointed out, it really didn’t matter who came out on top in the election, the net result for Palestinians would still be occupation and apartheid – but the outcome is significant nonetheless. That Netanyahu and his party topped the poll for the third time in a row, and that the Zionist right in general did so well, should serve as … Continue reading

Take Action: Write to supermarkets asking them to stop stocking Israeli products

Boycotting Israeli products is one important way individuals can express their support for Palestine and opposition to Israeli apartheid against the Palestinians. What is even stronger is when people act collectively, and we all demand the removal of Israeli products – revenues from which help fund the decades long brutal occupation of Palestine – from the shelves of stores in Ireland. Last year marked the 30th anniversary of the anti-apartheid strike at Dunnes Stores, an action that resounded all the way to Nelson Mandela’s cell on Robben Island in Apartheid South Africa; we believe that thirty years on, it remains … Continue reading
