[Dublin] Freedom for Palestine – Protest for Land Day!

On Thursday 30th March between 5.30pm and 6.30pm please join the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign at Dublin’s Spire to mark the 47th Anniversary of Palestinian Land Day by calling for an end to Israel’s brutal onslaught on the people of Palestine.


Israeli occupation forces are killing, wounding and imprisoning Palestinians on a daily basis – at least 88 people have already been killed this year, including 16 children. Apartheid Israel is building yet more illegal colonial settlements in Palestine. Flying Palestinian flags has even been outlawed.

Yet the international community, the Irish government included, is doing nothing to stop it. We demand action!

Please join our protest to:

• Show Solidarity with the Palestinian people and their struggle for freedom, justice and equality;

• Demand Action from the Irish government (you can also send a letter here);

• Take Action for yourself by supporting the BDS Movement and boycotting Israeli goods and services!

What is Palestinian Land Day?

The original Palestinian Land Day in 1976 saw Israeli military forces shoot and kill six Palestinian citizens of Israel, who were among thousands protesting the Israeli government’s expropriation of 2,000 hectares of land around the Arab villages of Araba and Sakhnin as a part of a plan to, in terminology of the Israeli state, “Judaise the Galilee” region, which has a majority of Palestinian residents.

It marked the first act of collective civil disobedience by Palestinian citizens of Israel against the racist colonisation and dispossession of the Palestinians of their lands and rights since the creation of the state in 1948, and simultaneously signalled the failure of Israel to subjugate those Palestinians who managed to remain in their homeland, after over 750,000 of them were ethnically cleansed during the 1947-1949 Nakba.

Today, we continue to celebrate and stand in solidarity with Palestinian resistance to Israel’s ongoing land expropriation, colonisation, occupation and apartheid.
