IRISH GOVERNMENT MUST EXPEL THE ISRAELI AMBASSADOR

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.
