"He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder." Einstein
As part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2012, the Dublin branch of the IPSC will be holding a “rolling boycott” demo calling on consumers to boycott Israeli products until Israel ends it occupation of Palestinian lands and abides by its obligations under international law. We will assemble at 2pm outside Dunnes Stores on Henry Street (famous for its role in the 1984-87 South African Anti-Apartheid strike by Dunnes’ workers), and begin leafleting and engaging with shoppers. From there we will visit the Jervis Shopping Centre on Henry St, Aldi on Parnell St, and wind up outside Tesco on Parnell St all of whom stock Israeli products.
This action is part of a National Day of Action, with similar events taking place around Ireland on the same day.
This event is organised by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) as one of a series of events taking place around Ireland during international Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 (20 – 27 February).
