[Waterford] Day of Activities for International Day of Solidarity With the Palestinian People
To commemorate International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, on Saturday 27th November the South East Branch of the IPSC will be holding a series of events in Waterford.
1pm, John Roberts Square – Information Stall
3pm, St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre – Planting of an Olive Tree in solidarity.
3.30pm, St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre – Serving food prepared by local Palestinians.
4pm, St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre – Screening of Oscar-nominated short film “The Present”.
All welcome, please bring your friends plus flags and banners.
Also, the flag of Palestine will fly proudly over the council’s offices in Waterford and Dungarvan on Monday which is the actual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People that takes place every year on 29th November.
The United Nations chose this date to mark the shameful day in 1947 when the UN voted to partition Palestine against the wishes of the indigenous people. 74 years on, the Palestinians continue to suffer the disastrous consequences of that imperial decision to allow the colonisation of Palestine.
Join one – or all – of our events to show you solidarity with the Palestinian people, and to celebrate decades of resistance to Israeli Apartheid and colonialism.
Organised by South East IPSC.
