On Tuesday 3rd March members and supporters of the Irish Anti War Movement and Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign staged a symbolic hour long protest at the Eircom HQ on Military Road in Dublin.
The protestors were highlighting the fact that an IBM led consortium, which includes the Israeli company Amdocs, may soon win a major contract with Eircom for a new computer billing system.
Such a move would contravene the international boycott campaign against Israel. Political organizations and civil society within Palestine, and among others in Ireland the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, have called for a boycott and divestment campaign against Israel until such time as they reverse their settlement construction, illegal occupation and annexation of land in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions.
