|Amnesty International are hosting a Picnic Against Apartheid on Wednesday 10 May outside Leinster House in Dublin at 1pm.
We are bringing a Picnic Against Apartheid to the Dáil to call on the Irish Government, and others, to recognise what is happening as Apartheid under international law.
Why a picnic? We want to act in solidarity with Palestinians who are forced out of public spaces by Israeli authorities – just because of who they are – often for something as simple as having a picnic. This is just one example of how Israel enforces a system of oppression and domination against the Palestinian people, and it must end now.
We are inviting the public and our elected representatives to join us to hear our calls and learn more over food, music and speeches.
Bring your lunch and a blanket! The bigger the crowd, the bigger the statement that we in Ireland are calling for an end to this crime against humanity that is apartheid.
This event is organised by Amnesty International Ireland, with the Irish Anti-Apartheid Campaign for Palestine.
