IAWM CONDEMNS MASSACRE IN GAZA AND CALLS FOR EXPULSION OF ISRAELI AMBASSADOR

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 15 MAY 2018

• CONDEMNS ISRAELI MASSACRE OF PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS
• CONDEMNS THE OPENING OF THE US EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM
• SUPPORTS THE IPSC NAKBA DAY VIGIL AT SPIRE, DUBLIN, 6PM TODAY
• CALLS FOR IRISH GOVERNMENT TO SANCTION ISRAEL AND EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR

The IAWM condemns Israel’s killing of at least 58 Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border yesterday bringing the total of Palestinians killed so far to well over 100 with thousands injured many of these seriously.

Men, women & children, including journalists and now an 8-month old baby have been killed in these protests. For the last few weeks highly equipped Israeli forces have blatantly used high velocity explosive bullets and tear gas, both specifically targeting individuals and / or firing indiscriminately into crowds, which has caused multiple deaths and horrendous injuries. The massacre yesterday marked a new low for Israel as they openly killed civilians who were rightly protesting the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

We condemn the muted response of the Irish and other EU Governments who are complicit in so many ways with Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians, not least in arms sales.

Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank have a right to protest at the border with Israel, especially during these Nakba days, given the horrific 12-year siege, three wars and continuous occupation and military incursion by the 4th largest military machine in the world.

Irish Anti War Movement statement on the slaughter in Eastern Ghouta

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 21 FEBRUARY 2018

Irish Anti War Movement statement on the slaughter in Eastern Ghouta

The Irish Anti-War Movement said today that the slaughter that is now taking place in Eastern Ghouta, as a result of the bombing of the civilian population by the Russian-backed Assad regime is utterly horrific and should stop immediately. While accurate casualty figures are difficult to ascertain it is clear that hundreds of lives, among them large numbers of children, have being lost.

The ‘explanation’ offered by the Assad regime that they are responding to the killing of six people in government-controlled areas of eastern Damascus earlier this week by shells fired from Eastern Ghouta is not acceptable. Even if it were true the response would be completely disproportionate. The Syrian military said it carried out "precision strikes" on areas from which the shells were launched. This claim is laughable and no more credible than such claims made by the US when bombing Iraq or Afghanistan.

“In reality the massacre in Eastern Ghouta, an area containing 400,000 people, is a continuation of the policy pursued by the tyrannical Assad regime for over six years - of killing any Syrians who do not accept its rule. This policy along with interventions by foreign militaries, has resulted in the death of approximately 500,000 citizens and the displacement of millions more” said John Molyneux, Secretary of the IAWM Steering Committee.
