[Belfast] Justice for the Palestinians – Part of the Fairer World Festival (IPSC)
Date: Saturday 15th June
Location: Beanbag Studio, Northern Visions, 23 Donegall St, Belfast (view map)
We aim to explain how the colonial ambitions of Britain and the US in the Middle East led to a massive betrayal of the Palestinian people – a betrayal which has led to ethnic cleansing, to the world’s largest refugee population and to the near destruction of the Palestinian economy. Meanwhile, the settler-colonial state of Israel continues to be rewarded by US and EU patronage, despite its policy of apartheid and continued theft of Palestinian land. We will explain the effort of the solidarity movement to counter this injustice through a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, such as was used against South Africa, until Israel obeys international law.
