[Dublin] March for Palestine! Join the Global Day of Action!
As Apartheid Israel escalates its attacks on the Palestinian people in Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank, we ask you to join our MASKED, SOCIALLY DISTANCED AND PANDEMIC SAFE protest on SATURDAY 22 MAY at 2pm at The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin. From there we will march to the Israeli Embassy.
JOIN THE GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION!
You MUST WEAR A MASK to join this protest, and we ask you to bring Palestinian flags and wear keffiyehs if you have them – and importantly, follow the advice of our stewards on the day so we can all protect each other. Just as we show solidarity with Palestinians, we will show solidarity with each other, thank you!
At the time of writing, more than 200 people have been killed in Israel’s ongoing assault on the people of Gaza. They include more than 60 children and 30 women, meaning that women and children make up nearly half of all the dead.
Hundreds more have been wounded, already overflowing hospitals have been bombed, media offices and educational facilities have been attacked, and hundreds of homes have been destroyed – all war crimes in violation of international law. Tens of thousands of people are homeless, now jammed together for shelter in 50 UN schools, during a pandemic in an area already ravaged by Covid19! Israel even bombed the one Covid-testing laboratory in Gaza!
In the West Bank, Israeli occupation forces are attacking Palestinian demonstrators with live fire, so-called rubber bullets, and tear gas, so far killing twenty and injuring hundreds.
In Jerusalem and inside the Apartheid State of Israel itself, mobs of rightwing Israeli are given almost free reign to rampage in Palestinian areas chanting “Death to Arabs”, all under the protection of the Israeli police.
Join us on Saturday to show your solidarity with the Palestinian people, your anger at Apartheid Israel’s crimes, and to demand action from our government!
