Emergency Protest: Israel must Release the Free Gaza activists

category dublin | anti-war / imperialism | event notice author Tuesday June 30, 2009 21:58author by David L - IPSC Report this post to the editors

The IPSC in Dublin will be staging an emergency protest tomorrow Wednesday 1st July, 5pm, at the GPO on O'Connell Street.

We ask everyone to come along and support it and the kidnapped members of the Free Gaza Movement.

Reports have just reached us that the Free Gaza boat 'Spirit of Humanity' has been boarded by the Israeli Navy, that all passengers and crew have been arrested, and that the supplies they were bringing (medicine, toys, olive trees and cement) have been confiscated.

Among those kidnapped are two Irish citizens - Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire and the ship's first mate Derek Graham (a member of the IPSC). Also kidnapped is former US Congressperson Cynthia McKinney.

The team were kidnapped in international waters while trying to enter Gaza. There has been a lot of media coverage in the recent past about Somali Pirates - well this is an act of Israeli State Piracy, an attack on an unarmed boat of human rights advocates and the capture of urgently needed supplies.

**Emergency Protest***
======================

The IPSC in Dublin will be staging an emergency protest tomorrow Wednesday 1st July, 5pm, at the GPO on O'Connell Street. We encourage everyone to come along and support it and the kidnapped members of the Free Gaza Movement. Demand their release, demand the return of the supplies, demand the release of the boat, demand a safe sea-passage to Gaza, and demand that the criminal Siege of Gaza be lifted!

As this is short notice we would appreciate it if you could spread the word among any contacts you may have, personal or professional (media etc). Many thanks.
