We hope you are safe and well in these fearful and uncertain times. We mourn all of those who have been lost, and send love and solidarity to all those who have lost.

Things look worse than ever for Palestinians – we need your help to keep fighting for justice!

The Trump-Netanyahu axis has been a disaster for the Palestinian people. In an attempt to allow Israel to dictate illegal terms to the Palestinians, the Trump administration has enacted a series of harsh policies, including recognising occupied Jerusalem as the capital of apartheid Israel, threatening the International Criminal Court, and cutting all funding to UNRWA, the agency responsible for providing education and healthcare to millions of Palestinian refugees. Meanwhile, attempts continue to brutally suppress Palestinian resistance, with almost 400 unarmed protesters shot dead and thousands wounded in Gaza and thousands of prisoners – including hundreds of children – still in … Continue reading

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

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.

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

Action Item: Bank of Ireland closes IPSC accounts – We need your help!

In a frankly shocking move, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) had its bank accounts closed last week by Bank of Ireland without any proper explanation other than we no longer met their “risk appetite”. It is a move which appears to be part of a campaign orchestrated by the Israeli government to silence organisations which support the global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign which aims to pressure Israel until it ends its occupation of Palestine and adheres fully to international law ensuring freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people. As the BDS movement has grown exponentially worldwide, marking … Continue reading
