Dublin Meeting

14 meetings right across the 32 Counties. All welcome
Dublin poster
Dublin poster

Caoimhe Butterly has been working in and around the Middle East for a number of years.

Her eye-witness accounts are invaluable for most of us who have to make do with what we are being fed by the mainstream print and electronic media.

As Lebanon enters a period of political instability - a dangerous vacuum with no President and no political solution/compromise in sight.
As Palestinians living in a variety of refugee camps in Lebanon look anxiously at Annapolis and Nablus and wonder about their short and long term future
As those living and exiled recently from Nahr-el Bared return cautiously to the mayhem left behind by the Lebanese Army and the insurgents

A number of activists have come together to support her tour and the meetings

The IPSC, Anti-war Ireland, the Irish Anti-War Movement, the Galway Alliance Against the War, the Derry Anti-War Alliance and the Raytheon 9, Amnesty and a number of individuals are supporting the tour.

First meeting will be in Sligo at 8.30.p.m.on Monday Dec 3rd and will take place in the Glasshouse Hotel, Hyde Bridge, Sligo. It is being held under the auspices of the Connolly Forum and the IPSC.
Dublin is second with a meeting in the Theatre behind Connolly Books at 7.30 pm on Tuesday Dec 4th (see poster). Cork welcomes Caoimhe in UCC lunchtime on Wednesday Dec5th and that night there is a Public Meeting in Clonakilty. Then Limerick, Galway, Derry (possibly Strabane), Belfast, back to Dublin in the Amensty Cafe on Wednesday Dec 12th and ending in Cork on Thursday Dec.13th.

Watch this space as more details of venues are confirmed.

Just back from the meeting in Sligo where Caoimhe and Declan Bree Gave us two hours of orientation on the subject matter at hand. It was a nice meeting, which didnt go too deeply into technicalities. Nice, colourful photos of resilient people dealing with a hard reality.

I suspect as Caoimhe gets up to speed on where the Irish psyche is regarding the Nahr al Bared tragedy and on the General awareness in Ireland of the details she will direct her narrtive a bit more efficiently.

Word of warning : Some AH(s) had gone around the town on the weekend and stuck "CANCELLED" stickers on a lot of the posters. It's not known if this was an isolated tosser or the usual frothing at the mouth shower of Zionits organising a " No freedom of Speech " action.

Check your posters in your local area and make sure they haven't been tampered with in such a manner.

Also send a computer geek to your local meeting who can help Coaimhe organise her slideshow and sound and films , she hopeless at it and we missed some of her material.

Over and out.

Well done Sligo....well done Rover and Declan and the rest of you.
Caoimhe will speak in Dublin, in the Theatre in Connolly Books tonight, Tuesday 4th, at 19.30. The talk is jointly sponsored ny AWI, IPSC and the iawm.
Responding to the Rover re: the Sligo posters, about 50 of our posters for the meeting in Dame Street were ripped and destroyed. This despite us having gone through the process and got permission from the DCC.

Sign of the times?

See you all there tonight
