The EU Directive on the Occupied Territories » CounterPunch

The EU Directive on the Occupied Territories » CounterPunch

From Counterpunch: This directive forbids any form of EU funding or cooperation with any entity established or operating in “the territories occupied by Israel since 1967”, which “comprise the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.” 

Furthermore, the directive requires that any future agreements between EU states and Israel or any Israeli entity must include a clause specifically asserting that those occupied territories are not part of the State of Israel.

..when I begin anew
 armed & humbled
by what I have learned
in this world
in this single life
I will stride with a light step
in whatever guise the Goddess chooses
since I am hers to command
in this short eternity and beyond..

Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign


About the IPSC

"The IPSC was set up in late 2001 by a group of established Irish human rights and community activists, academics and journalists who were deeply concerned with the current situation in the Occupied Territories. In partnership with Palestinians now living in Ireland the IPSC was formed to provide a voice for Palestine in Ireland."

See Upcoming Events

Whilst we have significant troubles of our own it is very important not to forget our brothers and sisters in Palestine who remain very much under the heel of the Israeli Reich.

Please join the IPSC “Irish Artists’ Pledge to Boycott Israel”

Poem - Reich Like

Who is speaking for our brothers and sisters 
the Palestinians
Very few it seems
Only the odd heretic
Children murdered mindlessly
Revolutionaries assassinated arbitrarily
The due process of law consigned and constrained
Reich like
