After months of provocations, Israeli state repression and settler attacks have resulted in a widespread anti-colonial uprising of Palestinian youth. Israel has sought to put down this movement with extreme violence – at least 30 Palestinians have been killed, while over 1,300 have been wounded by live fire or rubber-coated steel bullets since the beginning of the month.

REFUGEES ARE VICTIMS OF WAR – LET THEM IN!

END THE WARS THAT CAUSE THE REFUGEE CRISIS

This week is a busy week for anti-war events but if you can only do one thing we urge you to come along to our IAWM protest this Thursday at 5.30pm, assembling at the EU Offices on the corner of Dawson St. and Molesworth St, Dublin 2.

While Governments prevaricate and now even those countries previously willing to accept refugees are sealing the borders, the desperate refugees fleeing wars in the middle east need our help more than ever. This is an era-defining moment and it needs clear, open, honest organisation to solve it.

Governments should stop sitting on the fences or playing to their xenophobic galleries and welcome the generous response by ordinary citizens throughout Europe, including here in Ireland. Those people and organisations must be allowed to be part of the organised solution.

All IAWM members are encouraged to attend this important demonstration supported by many diverse groups in soildarity with the refugees.

On the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack the world is anything but a safer place, especially for the people of the middle east where the legacy of post 9/11 US and EU policies are manifesting themselves in more terror, total destabilisation and the fleeing of traumatised men, women and children.

Irish people have shown through polls and pledges of accommodation that they are ahead of the Irish Government in seeking to assist these war-weary refugees. It is equally important that we force the US and EU Governments to stop fuelling and arming the wars that force these people to try desperate and dangerous means to leave their countries in the first place.

In 2008, Joseph Stiglitz estimated that the combined cost of the immoral and brutal Iraq and Afghanistan wars was $3,000,000,000,000. One Cruise Missile alone costs $1,500,000. How many of these rained down on Iraq and Afghanistan? How much needed health, education, housing, and environmental protection could have been provided by these funds wasted on destruction? And how many refugees would these huge expenditures now provide shelter for?

Shannon Airport Protest, Saturday 18 July, 2-4pm

1. Shannon Airport Protest, Saturday 18 July, 2-4pm

IAWM members are encouraged to attend this important protest to let the Irish Government know that we object to the use of Shannon Airport as a facility to the US Military machine in its perpetuation of continuous wars in the middle east and elsewhere.

Statement from Shannonwatch
As Shannon Airport prepares to stage an air show on July 18th to celebrate its achievements in the world of aviation, peace groups in Ireland issue a reminder that its recent history is not one to be proud of. Since 2001 the airport has been used by the US military as a gateway to wars in the Middle East. These wars have resulted in the death of innocent men, women and children, left millions of people homeless, and destroyed communities and entire countries.

“While it is fitting to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the first commercial transatlantic flight from Shannon Airport and to acknowledge its important role in aviation in Ireland, we cannot ignore the fact that in the last 15 years it has been used to illegally invade Iraq and Afghanistan and has been part of the CIA’s global campaign of kidnapping and torture” said John Lannon of Shannonwatch.

“Shannon became the original airport gateway between the US and Europe and was the birthplace of Duty Free. It is now a gateway to human suffering and war.” added Mr Lannon.
