We ask you to keep it handy for when candidates come looking for your vote, and make sure they know that the Irish government’s attitude toward Palestine is an important issue for voters in Ireland!
The IPSC is calling on candidates in the General Election to pledge to support justice for Palestine. In a call sent to the hundreds of candidates in 39 constituencies we have asked aspiring TDs to make three pledges to support concrete actions to help secure freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people if elected to Dáil Éireann.
The campaign is asking candidates to publicly commit to three promises, the #PalestinePledges. Responses will be published on this page so that all voters concerned with Palestine can with have an informed opinion about where candidates stand on the issue of justice for the Palestinian people. The asks are as follows:
The following parties have endorsed all three pledges: the Green Party, People Before Profit, Rise, Sinn Féin, Solidarity, and The Workers’ Party. You can see individual candidates’ responses below.
Fianna Fail’s Election Manifesto states that the party commits to “progress[ing] the Occupied Territories bill”.
