Press Release, Wed 9 th May 2010, 5.30pm
This year’s CRH annual general meeting in Dun Laoghaire was again the scene of calls for the company to divest from its Israeli business interests which are involved in building the illegal wall in Palestine. Two Palestinian women made impassioned pleas from the floor calling on CRH to heed the call of a petition signed by over 10,000 people for CRH to “Stop commenting Misery in Palestine”. Meanwhile outside, with placards spelling out the same message to the company and holding huge Palestinian flags, human rights activists supporting the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) lined Marine Road.
