Gaza demo: Galway Saturday 17/1 Boycott Israeli produce!

17/01/2009 - 14:30

There will be a demonstration in Galway City centre on Saturday January 17th at 2.30pm to protest the barbaric treatment of the people of Gaza by Israel.
People are asked to congregate at the Wilde Statue,at the end of Shop St. to show solidarity with the Palestinian cause and to tell the world that the actions of the Israeli government in Gaza are an affront to humanity. To date nearly 900 people have been killed in Gaza, a figure that is rapidly approaching the number killed by the Israelis in Lebanon 2 years ago.
The assembly will be adressed by a number of speakers, demanding that the Irish government immediately expels the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, and calling on the Irish public to boycott all Israeli products.
A list of Israeli products and brands will be publicised at the demonstration and distributed outside various retail outlets in the town.
As Naomi Klein states, " The best way to end the bloody occupation is to target Israel with the kind of movement that ended apartheid in South Africa." The people of Ireland played a noble and leading role in that movement. Please support the Galway Free Gaza Campaign.
