[Dublin] Boycott Israeli Goods Day of Action (Israeli Apartheid Week 2013)

category dublin | rights and freedoms | event notice author Déardaoin Feabhra 07, 2013 14:58author by IPSC - IPSC Report this post to the editors

To kick off Israeli Apartheid Week 2013, we ask you to join the IPSC Dublin branch for a Boycott Israeli Goods day of action. Assemble at 2pm at the Spire, O’Connell Street.

From there we will visit several city centre outlets that stock Israeli goods, making consumers aware of their presence, the connection between these products and the occupation of Palestine and asking people to boycott them. After the action, we will remain on the streets collecting signatures asking the Irish Government to call for the suspension of Israel from the Euro-Med agreement which grants it special trading privileges with the EU.

Israeli exports – from both the illegal settlements and inside Israel – contribute to the economy of Israel’s apartheid occupation regime and the oppression of the Palestinian people. Indeed, the Israeli government is dependent on a strong export-orientated economy and Europe is Israel’s largest trading partner.

Almost 200 organisations, representative of a broad spectrum of Palestinian civil society – trade unions, professional bodies such as academic unions and associations, churches, medical unions, political organisations and NGOs – have called on the international community to endorse the call for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, similar to that which helped to end the apartheid regime in South Africa.
