All out for Palestine this Saturday.

In just four weeks at least 1900 people killed in Gaza, including 373 children – see http://www.dhakatribune.com/world/2014/aug/08/name-373-children-killed-g....
400,000 people displaced i.e. almost 25% of the population. This is equivalent to 4895 dead and 1,086,690 people displaced in Ireland! Yet Irish Government recently, shamefully abstained on a UN vote to have an investigation into war crimes. Let the Irish Government know what you think this Saturday. Come along and support the people of Gaza and all of Palestine.

2. On Tuesday 05 August 2014 the IAWM launched its pamphlet entitled "World War 1 - what did they die for?" – along with a statement signed by over 75 people, many of them prominent figures from artistic, cultural, sporting and political life in Ireland. The launch was addressed by Clare Daly TD, artist Robert Ballagh, the Chair of CND the Revd. Patrick Comerford, former MEP Patricia Mc Kenna and writer, historian and secretary of the IAWM Steering Committee, John Molyneux.

IRISH GOVERNMENT SHOULD SUPPORT CEASEFIRE AND NEGOTIATIONS ON BASIS OF HAMAS TEN-POINT PLAN

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE - 25 JULY 2014

• IAWM CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE CEASEFIRE AND NEGOTIATIONS OF HAMAS 10-POINT PLAN AND CALLS ON IRISH GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT THIS
• CONDEMNS CONTINUED ISRAELI MILITARY ONSLAUGHT AGAINST PEOPLE OF GAZA
• SUPPORTS IPSC PROTEST THIS SATURDAY

The Irish anti-War Movement (IAWM) issued a statement today calling for an immediate ceasefire and direct negotiations of the ten-point plan put forward by the Hamas leadership, which has been endorsed by the PLO. It also called on the Irish Government to support such a move.

The statement noted that the Hamas proposal has the de-facto support of the elected representatives of the entire Palestinian population. All the demands in the Hamas 10-point plan are perfectly reasonable and if implemented would lead to a permanent end to hostilities, a lifting of the siege of Gaza and a much safer and dignified life for both Palestinians and Israelis.

The Hamas ten-point proposal notes the following:

• Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border.
• Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths.
• Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people.
• Establishing an international seaport and airport, which would be under U.N. supervision.
• Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.
• Internationalizing the Rajah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.
• International forces on the borders.
• Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al-Aqua Mosque.
• Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement
• Reestablishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.
