Watch: ‘Songs of Freedom: A Chorus for Boycott, Divestment and Sactions!’ event in Dublin
On Saturday 30th August 2014 The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign teamed up with the Resistance Choir to bring songs for Palestinian freedom to Dublin’s Henry Street, one of the city’s main shopping thoroughfare. Standing outside Arnotts iconic store, choristers sangs songs while leafleteers enaged, and distributed hundreds of Boycott Israeli Goods information sheets, to shoppers on the busy street. You can see videos of some of the songs below.
IPSC Vice Chairperson Fatin Al Tamimi, who was present at the event, said “while the ceasefire between Palestinian groups and Israel is a welcome step towards Palestinian freedom, Israel’s occupation and associated human rights and international law violations will continue as long as it is allowed to act with impunity. That’s why the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is so vital. And that’s why we’re out here today saying, and singing, ‘For Justice in Palestine, Boycott Israel’.”
