STOP THE GENOCIDE AND IMPENDING FAMINE IN TIGRAY: PROTEST AT GPO AT 1PM MONDAY, 14TH JUNE

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM)

PRESS RELEASE – 12 ​June 2021

- Stop the genocide and impending famine in Tigray

- Support the Tigray Community in Ireland, Monday 14th at 1pm, at the GPO, Dublin

In a statement today, the Irish Anti War Movement (IAWM) expressed grave concern for the worsening conditions in Tigray, a region in the north of Ethiopia.

Conditions in the Tigray region have been spiralling downwards since the federal government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared war on Tigray, launching airstrikes and sending in ground troops in November 2020.

Many believe this escalation was a punishment after Tigray held regional elections in defiance of an election ban by the federal government after it cancelled elections due to be held in August 2020. Since then, the Ethiopian administration has been blocking or limiting access to electricity, aid, food, and water for millions of Tigrayan people.

IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR AND ENACT THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES BILL

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM)

PRESS RELEASE – 22 MAY 2021

• IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR AND ENACT THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES BILL
• END THE SIEGE OF GAZA
• END THE OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE
• BOYCOTT ISRAEL

The IAWM is supporting the multiple Palestinian solidarity events happening around Ireland today and members of its Steering Committee will be participating in the main event at the Spire in Dublin at 2pm.

The list of events is here:
https://www.ipsc.ie/event/global-day-of-action-for-palestine-irish-event...

The IAWM encourages all its members to attend one of these events provided that they do not have Covid or any symptoms, that they wear a mask, socially distance, follow all HSE guidelines regarding meeting up and follow the guidance of the stewards.

The IAWM welcomes the unconditional ceasefire between the Israeli Military and Hamas and other groups but says that the underlying conditions that caused this upsurge in violence remains. That is ultimately the denial to Palestinians of their basic human rights which is manifest through evictions, continued ethnic cleansing, land theft, discrimination, arbitrary detention and imprisonment and even extrajudicial killings - all perpetrated by a violent, racist apartheid regime.

The Irish Government must now censure the Israeli Government by enacting the Occupied Territories Bill and by expelling the Israeli Ambassador. Such actions would send a strong message of solidarity to the Palestinian people and warn Israel that it can no longer ignore international law and act with impunity.

Fatin Tamini a Palestinian member of the IAWM Steering Committee and Chair of the IPSC said:

IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR, IAWM PR, 180521

PRESS RELEASE – 18 MAY 2021

IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR
CEASEFIRE NOW – END THE MASSACRE ON GAZA!
SUPPORT THE GENERAL STRIKE THROUGHOUT PALESTINE TODAY

The IAWM condemns the extreme violence of the Israeli state against the people of Palestine which escalated on Monday 10th May following a threat of eviction of hundreds of Palestinians from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of East Jerusalem and an unprovoked attack by the Israeli Military on peaceful worshippers in the Al Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third most sacred place.

The subsequent rockets from Gaza and the attacks by the Israel military has now led to multiple deaths and injured across the territories, demolished buildings and homeless families fleeing for safety with 200 Palestinians killed in Gaza alone, almost 60 children and 34 women, with 1,230 injured.

There have also been vicious attacks by the Israeli armed forces and colonial settlers against the indigenous Palestinian population throughout the occupied territories and within Israel itself.

The IAWM calls on its members to express solidarity and support for the General Strike called across Palestine today, Tuesday 18 May 2021, which is being coordinated by the High Follow Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel (in Palestine 48) and in the West Bank by the General Union of Teachers (GUPT). We stand full square with all Palestinians at this grave time.

Multiple actions can be taken. See here - https://bdsmovement.net/news/solidarity-with-palestinian-general-strike-...

In addition the IAWM is asking its members to attend the protest at the Israeli Embassy in Dublin called for 4pm today. If attending please wear a mask, observe social distancing and all HSE guidelines for outdoor meeting and follow the guidance of the stewards.
