Today, 29th November, is International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The United Nations chose this day to mark the shameful day in 1947 when the UN voted to partition Palestine against the wishes of the indigenous people. 73 years on, the Palestinians continue to suffer the disastrous consequences of that imperial decision to allow the colonisation of Palestine. Also, on this day 19 years ago, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign was formed to stand in solidarity with Palestinian people. Our team of volunteers have worked tirelessly throughout these years for Palestinian rights. To mark this occasion we have produced … Continue reading →

In a statement issued yesterday, more than 450 Palestinian and international organisations have called on the United Nations General Assembly to investigate Israel for committing the Crime of Apartheid. Some 50 Irish organisations are signatories to the call, which originated with Palestinian civil society. Noting that “Apartheid is a crime against humanity, giving rise to individual criminal responsibility and State responsibility to bring the illegal situation to an end,” the letter calls on all the UN General Assembly, which begans its 75th session yesterday, to: Launch international investigations into Israel’s apartheid regime over the Palestinian people, including by reconstituting the … Continue reading →

Last week’s announcement of the normalisation of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is no cause for celebration. While it should come as little surprise given that friendly relations between the two were an open secret for decades, the formalisation of the agreement is nevertheless paid for in the negation of Palestinian fundamental rights – not least the right to self-determination. Instead of centring Palestinian rights as the pivot upon which to build a just and sustainable peace, this agreement actually does the opposite; it gives important diplomatic cover to Israel’s ongoing violations of these rights. This is … Continue reading →
