Yesterday evening up to 400 people marched from the GPO to the Egyptian Embassy in Dublin in support of the continued Egyptian protests.

They described their horrific experience in detail to other protesters leaving no doubt as to why they want an end to this barbaric regime.

EGYPT PROTESTS - SOLIDARITY PROTESTS AT GPO, DUBLIN TODAY AT 4-6PM.

The Irish Anti-war Movement supports protest in Dublin this afternoon in solidarity with protests in Egypt

Protest at the GPO on O'Connell Street today, 4 Feb, at 4pm - 6pm.

In a statement today the Irish Anti-War Movement, joining with the Egyptian community in Ireland, called on its members to support the mass uprising in Egypt which calls for the resignation of Dictator/President Hosni Mubarak.

Hundreds of protestors have been killed and thousands have been injured since the uprising began on 25 January. The regime is refusing to budge and is effectively allowing the country to fall into chaos rather than heed the call for democracy. There are now widespread reports from many sources that hired men were deployed by the regime to disrupt peaceful protests and wreak havoc. The situation is very dangerous, particularly if food and fuel supplies begin to run out.

Irish Government and Labour Party Called on to Cut Support and Links to Mubarak Dictatorship

PROTESTS CONTINUE AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY IN DUBLIN

In a statement, Richard Boyd Barrett, chairperson of the Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) and Dail election candidate for the People Before Profit Alliance (PBPA), has announced that further protests will take place at the Egyptian embassy in Dublin today in support of the popular democratic uprising underway in Egypt.

Cllr Boyd Barrett called on the Irish public to show solidarity with the Egyptian people and other Arab people’s rising up against dictatorship, corruption and poverty.

Cllr Boyd Barrett also called on western governments, including the Irish government and political parties, to end all support and break all links with the Mubarak dictatorship, and to publicly demand that the regime ceased its violent repression of the popular democratic protests in Egypt.

Cllr Boyd Barrett noted that as former Minister for Foreign Affairs, the new Fianna Fail leader Michael Martin had previously signed co-operation agreements with the Mubarak regime and called on him to now condemn the Egyptian dictator’s brutal dictatorship and break links with the regime.

Press Release - Jan 31st

The Irish Anti War-Movement and the Arab Solidarity Movement are holding a further picket of the Egyptian Embassy, Clyde Road. Ballsbridge. Dublin 4, at 2.30pm today 31st January in solidarity with protesters in Egypt who are demanding democracy and an end to the dictatorship of President Hosni Mubarak.

It is clear that the protesters in Egypt are refusing to leave the streets until President Mubarak steps down. The new Egyptian cabinet has now called the police back on to the streets and low flying military aircraft were yesterday harassing the protesters in Cairo.

The Irish Anti War movement has condemned the killing of at least 100 people and the beatings and imprisonment of several thousand protesters.

IAWM Chairperson, Richard Boyd Barrett said:

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT SUPPORTS THE REVOLUTION IN EGYPT AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE MUBARAK REGIME - PROTEST AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, CL

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT SUPPORTS THE REVOLUTION IN EGYPT AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE MUBARAK REGIME - PROTEST AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, CLYDE ROAD, DUBLIN TODAY AT 12.00PM.

The uprising against Mubarak’s regime in Egypt is hugely significant. Pressure for a change of regime through a mass popular protest movement on the streets in a country that has been a staunch ally of the US may open a new phase in opposition to the so-called 'war on terror'.

The uprising will also have repercussions for Egypt’s support for Israel, its ignoring of the rights of the people in Gaza and its obstruction of the free flow of Palestinians through the Rafah border crossing. The mass movement in Egypt that is part of a new wave against the autocratic regimes in Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan puts revolution led by new political forces on the agenda across the Middle East.
