Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign
by The Angry Goyim
30 Oct 2006
'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.' (Martin Luther King)
The IPSC was set up in late 2001 by a group of established Irish human rights and community activists, academics and journalists who were deeply concerned with the current situation in the Occupied Territories. In partnership with Palestinians now living in Ireland the IPSC was formed to provide a voice for Palestine in Ireland.
We are an independent, non-party political organisation, run by volunteers all committed to a just and sustainable peace in the Middle East.
We need your help. To join us, click on "Contact Details" in the banner above. We have branches in a growing number of cities and towns around the island of Ireland. Join the local branch in your area (see Contact Details for list of branches) or ask us to help you set up a new branch in your area.
The aims of IPSC
· To raise awareness in Ireland of the international plight of the Palestinian People.
· To promote Irish government involvement in finding a just solution for the Palestinian people, based on the full and unequivocal implementation of the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council resolutions regarding the right to self determination and respect for the human rights of the Palestinians.
· To develop and co-ordinate grassroots support for Palestinian rights among the media and concerned NGO's.
· To foster links between Palestinian and Irish organisations in the area of health, education and the global economy.
· To promote Palestinian culture: literature, music and other arts in Ireland, so Ireland and Palestine can share in each other's rich cultural history.
· To bring real Palestinian voices to life in the media in order to contribute to informed reporting on aspects of the current Middle East conflict and the Israeli occupation.
Activities of the IPSC
· Organizing public lectures and media appearances by visiting speakers from Palestine/Israel
