For the past two weeks the focus of the Free Palestine Campaign group in Galway has been harvesting signatures for our petition calling on the EU (and the Irish government to work towards effecting it) to suspend or terminate the Euro-Med Agreement, which economically privileges Israel with access to the EU market, due to that country's gross and willful trampling of Palestinian human rights, International Law, Geneva Conventions and Part 2 of the Agreement .

When it comes to Palestine, the moral rot of the EU in refusing to suspend the Agreement does'nt stop there, it's deep and pernicious and with the passing of the Lisbon Treaty will deleteriously effect and infect Palestine further?. read full story / add a comment

Last weekend, Belfast was graced with the presence of two strong Palestinian activists; George Rishmawi and Iyad Bornat (also spelled Eyad Burnat), the screening of Iyad's powerful documentary: Bil'in Against the Wall http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qy8-oxnZQJU in the Falls Road Cultural Center last Friday night and George's public address at the Belfast May Day Rally on Saturday.

The documentary is a powerful indictment of Israel and its use of murderous violence by its Occupation Army in beleaguered Bil'in against peaceful protestors to snuff out dissent against the expropriation of Palestinian land for the building of "settlements" for Jews only colonists.

Au fait with the action of the Raytheon 9 in Derry, George Rishmawi and Iyad Bornat, through the good offices of Kathleen O'Connell (IPSC) sought and found Eamonn McCann at the rally to express solidarity with the 9 and Pitstop Ploughshare success at their forthcoming trial.

Fuel and medical shortages, unbridled Israeli military attacks, trade embargoes, travel restrictions and now the food crisis has brought Gaza to the edge of an all out humanitarian crisis: out of a population of 1.4 million, the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), last Thursday, due to the Israeli fuel blockade has halted food aid to 700,000 refugees and the World Food Programme to another 127,000. Michael Jansen in last Friday's Irish Times http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/breaking/2008/0306/bre....html states that: "Due to the grounding of its vehicles, UNRWA also reduced operations at 214 schools serving 200,000 children and 19 health centres as well as refuse collection in eight refugee camps housing 500,000" read full story / add a comment

"On an eight day intercultural, fact-finding trip to Palestine," http://www.indymedia.ie/article/86470 and participating in the weekly Bil'in protest last Friday, three IPSC activists in a group of ten Irish concerned citizens who journey up from Jerusalem witnessed the brutal dispersal of the peaceful marchers by the Israeli Occupation Forces through the indiscriminate firing of rubber bullets and physical assault which continued all around us as our group was corralled without rhyme, reason or explanation by the IOF. Even so, thanking the good lord for small mercies, it was small potatoes in comparison to the egregious violence visited on previous Bil'in protests as evidenced in the DVD documentary we saw later. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday, Galway IPSC took to the street to protest against the collusion of a spineless and conscienceless EU with Israel and to encourage shoppers to boycott Israeli goods.

Belfast based, David Morrison, who writes for the Labour & Trade Union Review puts the pertinent question in a Electronic Intifada article: "How is Israel able to strangle the Gaza Strip when there is supposed to be an international crossing between Gaza and Egypt not controlled by Israelis?" and then goes on to answer with telling detail that: "It was primarily through the good offices of the European Union (EU), which had a formal role in managing the Rafah crossing, that Israel always had a veto on the opening of the crossing. In practice, whenever Israel didn't want the crossing open, the EU obligingly kept it shut". http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article9303.shtml

Treasa N1 Cheannabain, from the Galway Palestine Solidarity Campaign on a humanitarian mission to besieged Gaza with daughter, Naisrin, is now trapped there by the Israelis; in that dark valley of suffering that Michael Dugard has called the worlds largest prison, Married to Egyptian, the courtly Dr. Al-Safti, Treasa and daughter availing availing themselves of the window of opportunity provided by demolishment of the Apartheid Wall at the Rafah Crossing by Hamas two weeks ago, entered Gaza with funds for humanitarian purposes, to alleviate the endless suffering deriving from the collective punishment visited on that Golgotha by criminal Israel.

Deeply concerned and outraged at the continued use of Guantanamo as a US torture site, the ongoing Israeli collective punishment of Gaza and the facilitation of US troops and CIA torture flights through Shannnon Warport, members of the public, activists from Galway Food Not Bombs and the IPSC joined the Galway Alliance Against War protest at the Liam Mellows statue in Eyre Square this afternoon. Unfortunately, Rhuhel Ahmed, the British citizen who spent two years in the torture camp after being kidnapped with two of his friends whilst attending a wedding in Pakistan, could'nt attend. Fortunately, some 140 people attended including Michael D. Higgins, Galway City Councillors; Niall O' Brolchain, sisters, Catherine and Collette Connolly Billy Cameron and writers, Fred Johnson, Margaretta D'Arcy and Rita Anne Higgins. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday, on rain soaked Shop Street awash with bargain hunters, Galway IPSC did an awareness stall on Israeli Blood Diamonds in a continuing effort to persuade people not to purchase gemstones crafted in Israel and thus strenghtening the economy of a rogue state that, in regards to human rights, shamelessly exults and behaves like a mad dog off the leash. Israel, the dominant and alpha player in the cut diamond business, unlike Canada, doesn't mark the diamonds it crafts and the UN, true to form, exempts these conflict stones from the Kimberley Process thus leading to purchasers unwittingly buying the ordure of Zionism. read full story / add a comment

IT is highly unlikely that there would be any economic justification in investing in sustainable light rail and bus transportation in Galway if the planned Outer Bypass is built, according to independent transport researcher Brian Guckian.
