Thousands march in Dublin against slaughter in Gaza
dublin | rights, freedoms and repression | news report Sunday January 04, 2009 20:37 by Kev - IPSC (pers cap) info at ipsc dot ie
Today up to 3,000 people march in Dublin in solidarity with the people of Gaza who have suffered a week of Israeli air-strikes that have killed over 430 people and left over 2,000 injured, and who now face the threat of a full scale ground invasion. The protest called for an immediate end to Israeli attacks and war crimes, and an end to the criminal siege on Gaza. During the course of the protest news came via a link up to Gaza that the Israeli military had begun firing artillery along the Gaza border. The protest was loud, colourful and angry.
L-R (as far as I'm aware): Patrician McKeown (ICTU), Patrick Comerford (CND), Mary Lou McDonald (SF), Ricahrd Boyd Barrett (SWP/IAWM), Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Joe Higgins (SP)
The demonstration began at the Central Bank Plaza where protestors gathered to hear speeches from Freda Hughes (IPSC), Philip O'Connor (IPSC), Dr. Bassam Nassar (Palestinian Community), Patricia McKeown (ICTU President) and Ahmed Al-Habash (Palestinians in Ireland).

I have just seen a news report from Aljazeera tv and I burst into tears at the images of rows of dead children all under 10 years of age. A doctor was interviewed about the situation and I could hear the despair in his voice as he described the ongoing genocide which was occuring outside his hospital. He talkled about the numbers of victims that he had treated and the numbers are more than the Israeli officals are saying.
End this cruel and unjust slaughter. Nothing can justify it. All Israeli citizens should hang their heads in shame for what their leaders do in their name.
For the first time in my life I am moved to become proactive in as much protesting as I can do until the Israelis leave the Arabs in peace. I am horrorfied by so called religous peoples of Israel murdering and maming innocent children surly the Jews saw what happened in WW11 and have had enough of death and destruction. I used to admire the Jews for their honesty and sincerity and now I have lost all respect for them. In fact I dislike the Israeli people because it was they who voted for their government and thus they are ultimately responsible for al the present murder.
