IAWM BULLETIN 22 AUGUST 2014

1. IPSC stall and leafleting for GAZA, Saturday 23rd August, GPO. 12-2pm.
2. NO TO NATO NATO Protests, Newport, Wales. 30th August – 05th Sept.

1. IPSC stall and leafleting for GAZA, Saturday 23rd August, GPO. 12.00-2.00pm.
As the situation in Gaza deteriorates further with extensive Israeli military bombing and huge suffering for the civilian population there it is important to keep up the protests and solidarity work. Please come along to this IPSC stall on Saturday to help with leafleting and informing the public. Bring flags, placards etc. If enough people attend we will march down Henry Street for a boycott awareness action.

2. NO TO NATO PROTESTS, Newport, Wales. 30TH August – 05th Sept.

The Irish anti-War Movement is supporting this event in Wales and sending delegates. If any IAWM members would like to join us you are most welcome.

As NATO member countries stir up tension in the Ukraine and support the horrific Israeli military bombardment of Gaza the momentum for organised resistance to this year's NATO summit in Newport, Wales has grown.

The increasing sectarian violence in Iraq over the last few weeks has shown
the invasion of Iraq has failed by every measure and the Iraqi people are
suffering.

All the leaders of the key Western powers will be in South Wales for the
NATO summit so we need the biggest possible protests to force them to
break from their aggressive foreign policies. A whole week of protest is
planned during the week of the summit, details of which you can find
below.

Help us build the No to NATO protest.

Details here: http://www.ipsc.ie/event/dublin-freedom-justice-for-palestine-national-d...

All out for Palestine this Saturday.

In just four weeks at least 1900 people killed in Gaza, including 373 children – see http://www.dhakatribune.com/world/2014/aug/08/name-373-children-killed-g....
400,000 people displaced i.e. almost 25% of the population. This is equivalent to 4895 dead and 1,086,690 people displaced in Ireland! Yet Irish Government recently, shamefully abstained on a UN vote to have an investigation into war crimes. Let the Irish Government know what you think this Saturday. Come along and support the people of Gaza and all of Palestine.

On Tuesday 05 August 2014 the IAWM launched its pamphlet entitled "World War 1 - what did they die for?" – along with a statement signed by over 75 people, many of them prominent figures from artistic, cultural, sporting and political life in Ireland. The launch was addressed by Clare Daly TD, artist Robert Ballagh, the Chair of CND the Revd. Patrick Comerford, former MEP Patricia Mc Kenna and writer, historian and secretary of the IAWM Steering Committee, John Molyneux.
