Irish Friends of Palestine Against Lisbon : Day of Action in Galway

category galway | eu | news report author Sunday August 23, 2009 19:26author by Raymond Deane - Irish Friends of Palestine Against Lisbon Report this post to the editors

Our day was enlivened by a passing, large, colourful and friendly gay pride parade.

On Saturday August 22nd members of IFPAL (Irish Friends of Palestine Against Lisbon) and Free Palestine Campaign spent 10 hours on the streets of Galway city providing information on why IFPAL is calling for a No vote in the Lisbon referendum as a protest against the EU's support for Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people. Almost 1000 leaflets were distributed to passersby, who were mostly supportive.

The demonstration was joined in solidarity by a stalwart of the Shell to Sea Campaign, Naoise Ó Mongáin.

The activists took up position outside a number of stores that stock and sell Israeli goods, thus supporting the Israeli economy and indirectly supporting Israel's genocide against the Palestinians. These stores included Woody's, Aldi, Tesco, Debenham's, and Marks and Spencer. Our day was enlivened by a passing, large, colourful and friendly gay pride parade.

Playwright Margaretta D'Arcy quoted Nelson Mandela's assertion that Israeli apartheid is worse than that in the South Africa of yesteryear.
