About this event
You are invited to an evening of celebration for the United Nations International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly called for the annual observance of the 29th of November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Since then, NGOs in Ireland, including Development Perspectives and Trócaire, have continued to observe this day.
1. The Control of Economic Activities (Occupied Territories) Bill: Senator Frances Black, who introduced this important Bill to the Seanad, will join us to discuss its background and progress in the Oireachtas, and how people can take action to help it become law. Further information on the Bill can be found here – https://www.trocaire.org/news/what-you-need-know-about-occupied-territories-bill
2. Palestinian food from Izz Cafe: Izz and Eman from one of Cork’s most exciting new restaurants, Izz Cafe, will join us on the evening to provide samples of delicious Palestinian food. They will share the story of their journey to Ireland and how they are using food as a common denominator for peace and justice. https://www.facebook.com/www.izz.ie/?ref=py_c
