A number of Emergency Demonstrations are taking place today, Thursday 15th November, around Ireland and Britain in response to the latest Israeli assault on Gaza, codenamed ‘Operation Pillars of Cloud’. Which in total have left at least 16 people dead, including 5 children, and scores wounded. Yesterday alone, reportedly at least 9 people were killed, including 2 children. An Israeli military spokesperson said this is was the beginning of a “widespread campaign” on Gaza.
Please take to the streets today (Thursday) to protest this outrageous attack on the already besieged Palestinian population in Gaza. We must demand an end to such actions and that our government and the international community take meaningful concrete steps to end Israeli impunity once and for all.
Here is a list of protests happening around Ireland and Britain with the time and place of assembly:
Dublin – 5.30pm @ Israeli Embassy, 1
Cork – 6.00pm @ Daunt Square, Cork City
Limerick – 6.15pm @ Thomas Street, Limerick

1. Demonstration: don't attack Iran - end sanctions now
1. DEMONSTRATION: DON'T ATTACK IRAN - END SANCTIONS NOW
Demonstration at Dail Eireann - Thursday 11th October 5.30pm - Assemble Dail Eireann - Kildare St, Dublin
The Irish Anti War Movement are calling a demonstration at Dail Eireann calling on the Irish Government to condemn the almost daily threat of war and harsh sanctions imposed on the people of Iran. The sanctions are impacting severely on the most vulnerable sectors of Iranian society and are endorsed by the Irish government. They are allowing the Iranian regime to further repress women, civil rights activists and marginalized groups. There has been no evidence found to show that Iran is diverting uranium into a nuclear weapons programme and the threat of a military attack and debilitating sanctions are unlawful under the UN charter for human rights. Show solidarity with the people of Iran. Don't attack Iran - End sanctions now
