On Monday 18th August a public meeting will be held on
Ciaran Tierney, well-known Galway journalist working for the Connacht Tribune, will address the meeting.
It is quite rare that local journalists voice their personal political opinions in public. This may be because of structures in place that makes it extremely difficult for them to stick their hand up and say, “We support the Palestinians.” Many journalists though sympathetic to the suffering of the Palestinians feel they have to prove that they are “balanced” for fear of being accused of bias in their professional role.
The meeting aims to provide a better understanding of the politics behind the ongoing situation. It will be open for questions & general discussion. Galway SWP are hosting this public meeting- all welcome, event is free.
