For more than 75 years Palestinians have lived under an Apartheid regime imposed by Israel. We are asking people to sign our pledge to help End Israeli Apartheid. Israel has created and maintained laws, policies, and practices that deliberately oppress Palestinians. This ensures Palestinians live under a system of Jewish-Israeli domination across Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and affects Palestinian refugees displaced in neighbouring countries. The system is enforced by acts such as forcible transfer, drastic movement restrictions, fragmentation of communities, unlawful killings, arbitrary detention and torture, separation of families and the denial of nationality and citizenship rights to … Continue reading →

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign this evening expressed anger and frustration that the Irish government earlier refused to support the Illegal Israeli Settlements Divestment Bill, introduced into the Dáil by John Brady TD. Instead, the government will tomorrow vote to amend the Bill to delay any further discussion for nine months. The Bill seeks to prevent the Irish Strategic Investment Fund from investing in companies that appear on the ‘UN Database of Companies Operating in Illegal Israeli Settlements’, of which the fund currently has shares in nine such entities, including four Israeli banks that finance the building of settlements.

For more than 75 years, the Israeli-perpetrated ongoing Nakba has resulted in the protracted forced displacement of 66 percent of the Palestinian people. The ongoing Nakba is maintained by Israel’s colonial-apartheid regime’s policies and practices, namely: land confiscation and denial of use, denial of access to natural resources and services, annexation, suppression of resistance, denial of residency, segregation, fragmentation and isolation, the imposition of discriminatory planning and permit regime, and denial of reparations. The Israeli policies and practices that maintain this system and deny the Palestinian people’s rights to return and self-determination go beyond mere human rights violations. Rather, they … Continue reading →

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign has praised today’s publication of a detailed new report by Amnesty International showing that Israel is committing the crime against humanity of Apartheid against the Palestinian people. The 211 page report, entitled ‘Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime Against Humanity’, is the latest in a long line of human rights organisations levelling similar charges against Israel. It calls for international sanctions, including an arms embargo, against the Israeli state and individuals implicated in these crimes, for the International Criminal Court to investigate Israeli Apartheid, and for the United Nations to re-establish the Special Committee against … Continue reading →

We ask you to please join us at one of our actions around Ireland this Thursday 27th and Friday 28th January to show your opposition to Israel’s actions, and to tell our government that words are … Continue reading →

On 22nd October, Apartheid Israel moved to criminalise and ban six prominent civil society organisations, an escalation in its systematic targeting of human rights defenders, and an attempt to evade accountability for its violations of international law. Click here to take action! The six organisations are: Addameer, Al-Haq, Bisan Center for Research and Development, Defense for Children International – Palestine, Union of Agricultural Work Committees, and Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees.

On 8 September 2021 the European Commission registered a European Citizens Initiative (ECI) that calls to end trade with illegal settlements in occupied territories such as Palestine and Western Sahara. This only came after the organizers of the Initiative won a lawsuit against the European Commission, which had first rejected the initiative claiming a lack of competence. Their rejection was annulled by a humiliating decision of the European Court of Justice. What this means now is that over the coming months Palestine solidarity campaigners all over Europe will begin the hard work of collecting one million signatures from EU citizens in order … Continue reading →

In the early hours of Thursday 29th July 2021, Israeli occupation forces raided the headquarters of Defence for Children International – Palestine, confiscating computers, laptops, hard-drives and confidential legal files related to child prisoners. The raid was conducted Israel’s notorious Border Police unit, which operates under the command of the Ministry of Public Security. The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign sent the below letter to the Irish government, highlighting the ongoing collaboration between the Irish police force, An Garda Síochána, and the Ministry of Public Security through the EU-funded ROXANNE research programme. A similar letter was also sent to the Minister for … Continue reading →

Silwan is an area in Israeli-occupied and illegally annexed East Jerusalem that, like Sheikh Jarrah, is facing ongoing and imminent threats of ethnic cleansing. 1,500 Palestinians are under threat of having their homes demolished as Israel attempts to expel them and replace them with illegal Israeli settlers. This week the Apartheid State of Israel has begun a series of illegal demolitions in the area. The Irish government must both speak out and take concrete meaningful action – so we ask you to take one minute to send the below mail to Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney. Words are not … Continue reading →

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) welcomes the publication of a new report by the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence entitled “Demolitions and Displacements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.” The 112-page report, the product of several months of investigation by the Committee, is clear in its critique and condemnation of the illegal nature of Israel’s home demolitions, population displacements and settlement construction. The report also makes a list of recommendations (pp.47-49), most of which are broadly supported by the IPSC, in particular the calls for Ireland to: • Take steps towards realising its responsibility to not render aid or … Continue reading →
