The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) is to launch a new north-west branch at a public meeting in the Glasshouse Hotel, Sligo at 3pm on Saturday September 25.

Among those who will address the public launch are Fintan Lane and Fiachra O'Luain, two survivors of the Gaza aid flotilla which was attacked by Israel at the end of May and resulted in the murder of nine pro-Palestinian activists. There will also be short video presentations outlining the background to the conflict and describing day to day conditions of Palestinians living under siege.

The IPSC is an independent, non-party political organisation that campaigns for justice for the Palestinian people, through raising public awareness about human rights abuses in the occupied territories, violations of international law and the historical causes of the injustices to the Palestinians that lie at the heart of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

According to IPSC Northwest spokesperson Mark Cawley, there is already tremendous support in the northwest for the rights of the Palestinian people to freedom and justice.

Mark said: "Following the massacre of human rights activists aboard the Mavi Marmara on May 31, a number of very well attended protests were organised at short notice around the north west. In the wake of these demonstrations it was decided to establish a formal branch of the IPSC in this region to co-ordinate solidarity work with the Palestinian people."

Mr Cawley added: "The Branch will be publicly launched at this public meeting. Amongst those who will address the meeting are the IPSC Boycott officer Anne Kennedy and two of the survivors of the last Gaza aid flotilla, European election candidate and Donegal peace campaigner Fiachra O'Luain and Fintan Lane of the Free Gaza Movement. Both men will recount their experiences of being kidnapped, detained and abused by their Israeli captors, while Fintan will also outline their plans for the next aid flotilla which will set sail for Gaza with much needed humanitarian aid next month and which Fintan will once again take part in."

“Israel maintains their illegal occupation of Palestine by brutal violence, ethnic cleansing and war crimes. The apartheid state continues to steal Palestinian land, destroying Palestinian homes and villages, while maintaining and increasing their illegal settlements in the West Bank. They maintain their illegal and barbaric siege of Gaza, bomb it and kill and arbitarily arrest Palestinians when they choose."

Mr Cawley concluded: “We would urge all those who support the cause of freedom and justice for Palestine and who are concerned with the ongoing human rights abuses and war crimes being committed by Israel against the Palestinian people to attend this launch.”

take down every stars and stripes you see and and run up the Palestinian flag.
These people dont speak politeness.You wont see too many Israeli flags, and the US could change israeli policies with a phone call to Bibi to drop the settlement expansions and end the gaza blockade.A hint at dropping the subventions and the garrison on the sump would ease up.

It suits washington to threaten to unleash its zionist mad dog.Means it can pose as good cop and run the smoke screen of 'peace talks' as the bulldozers rev up for the final clearances.keeps the whole region on all fours.$60bn last wek in F-15s for saudi as israeli gets F-35s(the real machine)on credit.

The arms industry has been contracted to that of middle east leaders also..you know the israelis are not the only one's at it..granted they are the most favoured,by the U.S.
The bloodbath continues the war machine is still turning,why do politicians of developed countries think it is okay to buy bullets over bread for their people and expect other neutral countries to keep donating aid?
