Israeli Apartheid Week 2011: Lunchtime Protest - End EU Facilitation of Israeli Human Rights Abuses (IPSC)Date(s): 10 Mar 2011
Venue: EU House, Molesworth Street, D2
LUNCHTIME DEMO: On Thursday 10th March from 1-2pm the IPSC will be holding a small demonstration outside EU House, Molesworth Street (Dublin 2) to highlight the European Union’s ongoing faciliatation of Israel’s apartheid policies and war crimes. In particular we will be highlighting the role of Irish EU Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, who is responsible for administering “scientific grants” to Israeli arms manufacturing companies, effectively amounting to rewarding Israeli for its terrorisation of the Palestinians people!
