Tyrone Ógra Shinn Fein Condemn Israel's Murderous Piracy

category tyrone | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Monday May 31, 2010 17:11author by Free Palestine - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osfnational at yahoo dot ie Report this post to the editors

Young republicans from across County Tyrone outraged by today's murderous piracy by Israel have organised a number of actions over the coming week to protest and highlight local anger over these brutal abuses of human rights.

So far 19 deaths and dozens of injured have been claimed when Israeli soldiers boarded a ship and opened fire on civilian humanitarian workers who were bringing much needed aid to the stricken and besieged Palestinian people living in Gaza.

Actions will include graffiti, murals, protests and vigils. A protest is organised by South Tyrone Ógra at the Ballygawley Round at 5pm today, Strabane Ógra and Coalisland/Clonoe Ógra will each be organizing protests respectively and West Tyrone Ógra having already adorned the now vacant Omagh Brit Camp with graffiti and are erecting a mural.

Condemning Israel for their most recent acts of human rights abuses and murder, Tyrone Ógra spokesperson Barry McColgan said,

"The depths and depravity to which the fascist Israeli state will go have reached a new time low, this attack and murder on international humanitarian workers is made even more barbaric and sickening, considering the innocent victim's were merely bringing much needed medical, food, fuel and clothing aid to the starving and poverty stricken, men, women and children of Gaza."

"These actions demonstrate Israel for the fascist state which it is, and we would call on everyone to support all local, regional and national demonstrations in the future to protest these murders and show solidarity with the victims family and friends, and with the besieged Palestinians who will now not receive the 10,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid which the flotilla had on board. We would also call on the Dublin government to summon the Israeli Ambassador and remove him from our country with immediate effect. A clear message should be sent to the world that Ireland does not harbour war criminals."
