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:

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.
