[Dublin, Israeli Apartheid Week 2012] Lunchtime Demo: End EU Facilitation of Israeli Apartheid
As part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2012, on Friday 24th February from 1-2pm the IPSC will be holding a small demonstration outside EU House, Molesworth Street (Dublin 2) to highlight the European Union’s ongoing facilitation of Israel’s apartheid policies and war crimes. In particular we will be highlighting the role of Irish EU Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, who is responsible for administering “scientific grants” to Israeli arms manufacturing companies and other Israeli businesses and institutions (including settlement-based Ahava), effectively amounting to rewarding Israeli for its terrorisation of the Palestinians people.
For background to the EU and Israel, please see the relevant section of our website here.
This event is organised by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) as one of a series of events taking place around Ireland during international Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 (20 – 27 February).
