IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT STATEMENT ON THE CHARLIE HEBDO ATROCITY

1. IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT STATEMENT ON THE CHARLIE HEBDO ATROCITY

The Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) unequivocally condemns the terrorist murders of Charlie Hebdo journalists in Paris. As an anti-war movement we are opposed, and have always been opposed to terrorism in all its forms. We strongly insist on the right of journalists to practice their trade and, regardless of the content of what they write or publish, nothing can justify their murder in general or this atrocity in particular. It is shocking, as the Committee to Protect Journalists notes, that since 1992 alone, 1109 journalists have been killed in the course of their work.

The Charlie Hebdo atrocity is not a random act of evil. It has an historical and contemporary context which does not excuse it but which has to be understood. Like other terrorist atrocities such as 9/11 in New York and 7/7 in London or even the Birmingham Pub bombing in 1974 (all of which claimed more lives) it is a bitter fruit of the legacy of western imperial interventions, war and racism. It is completely the wrong reaction to the latter - wrong because it is brutal and reactionary in itself, and wrong because it plays into the hands of reactionaries, warmongers and racists. Nevertheless, it is a reaction to these things.

In particular in France it is a reaction to:
a) French imperialism’s long and atrocious history of colonialism in North Africa and elsewhere, but especially in Algeria where the French Government continue to meddle

1. IPSC’s ANNUAL NEW YEAR’S EVE VIGIL FOR GAZA ON THE HA’PENNY BRIDGE, DUBLIN.

Wed, 31 December 2014, 14:00 Ha'penny Bridge, Dublin

To commemorate the sixth anniversary of the Israeli ‘Operation Cast Lead’ attack on Gaza, and to highlight Israeli’s ongoing brutality coupled with the cruel and illegal siege of Gaza, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) is calling on people to gather at 2pm at the Ha’penny Bridge, Dublin on New Year’s Eve. Please bring Palestinian flags if you have them.

Please spare an hour of your time to remember the victims of the attacks on Gaza in 2008/9, 2012 and most recently the barbaric onslaught this summer, and the ongoing illegal Israeli siege of Gaza, which has resulted in a man-made crisis in Gaza.
