Events Details

03/03/2009 - 12:30 Protest Meeting at Eircom HQ, Dublin

Protest Meeting at Eircom HQ (near Heuston Station) - Tue 03 March at 12.30pm

Eircom plans to award a major contract to Israeli company Amdocs. This is despite the recent murderous Israeli assault on Gaza, which claimed the lives of over 1,300 people, including more than 300 children. Israel has shown a blatant disregard for international law and the norms of civilised behaviour.

Protest against this to show your opposition to Eircom’s “Business As Usual” attitude.

Organised by The Irish Anti-War Movement

Getting There: From City Centre Luas to Heuston Station - Address: Office 1 Heuston South Quarter, St. John's Road, Dublin 8

Section 1 Take Action

Download the Petition (http://www.irishantiwar.org/files/IAWM%20Eircom%20Petition.pdf)

Eircom are actively considering awarding a multi-million euro contact for a new computer billing system to a multinational consortium, which includes Israeli company Amdocs.

Amdocs is an Israeli based company, employing about 4000 people in Israel, and admits on its own web-site that most of its employees serve in the Israeli army.

For the consortuim that includes Amdocs to recieve this contract could be a major boost to the Israeli economy.

On the other hand, if Eircom refuse to give this contract to the consortium that includes Amdocs, it would be a powerful boost to the International campaign to boycott Israel because of its treatment of the Palestinian people.

We appeal to all those appalled by the recent Israeli massacare in Gaza and who wish to support the suffering people of Palestine, to sign this petition and circulate it widely for others to sign.

We also encourage you, particularly, if you are an Eircom  customer, to contact Eircom and make it clear to them that you will have to reconsider remaining an Eircom customer if this contract is granted to the consortium that includes Amdocs.

The Eircom executive who will recommend to the Eircom board which consortium should be awarded the contract is Eircom's IT Director, Gerry Quinn.

Letters or calls on this issue should be directed to him.
