Last Thursday, 20th August to an eager audience in an overbrimming room of the Imperial Hotel, Eyre Square, Galway, with contributions from Jenny Graham, Susan Johnson and Derek Graham, husband of Jenny gave harrowing eyewitness accounts of the Israeli/US/EU created hell on earth that is called Gaza, in the case of Derek Graham, he told his story about being kidnapped at gunpoint in Mediterranean international waters along with 20 other Free Gaza Movement human rights activists, on board the Spirit of Humanity on a voyage of mercy,, forced into the Israeli port of Ashdod and then in tune with the Kafkaesque perversion and inversion of morality and reality that is the hallmark of Zionism, bizarrely questioned for violating Israeli territorial waters. read full story / add a comment

On Saturday August 22nd members of IFPAL (Irish Friends of Palestine Against Lisbon) and Free Palestine Campaign spent 10 hours on the streets of Galway city providing information on why IFPAL is calling for a No vote in the Lisbon referendum as a protest against the EU's support for Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people. Almost 1000 leaflets were distributed to passersby, who were mostly supportive.

Yesterday morning, in a pantomine the wrong side of Christmas that elicited mirth, bemusement, alarm and some head scratching from passersby but which outraged an IFPAL activist watching over his charge, two Galway City Council workmen, shovel in hand, boarded a stage prop in the shape of an old pontoon in Claddagh Quay and as if the water were a potato drill, dug and shovelled their way out to the raft; MV IFPAL 2 - proudly displaying two large placards urging voters of conscience to Vote No in the Lisbon referendum. Resisting advice, shouted from the quayside, to give up their 'aul sins, behave in decent fashion and leave our raft be, a stickler for duty, one of Galway City Councils' Quaystone Cops, instead ... read full story / add a comment

To mark the 5th anniversary of the International Court of Justice ruling on July 9th 2004 that Israel's Apartheid Wall was illegal and must be torn down, last Saturday, July 4th, Galway activists took to the streets to illuminate the reprehensible fact that the so called "international community" is still turning the blind eye to this egregious crime: Israel continues to construct this obscenity while The UN has taken no action to implement the ICJ decision and. with the exception of a few principled governments, states have put no pressure or sanctions, the EU continues to grant Israel trading privileges in violation of the ICJ's call on third states "not to recognise the illegal situation resulting from the construction of the wall" nor "to render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation brought about by such construction." International business, as is its wont, continues to finance and provide material support to the Wall and settlements. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday, in Shop Street, activists and supporters of Shell to Sea and Galway Free Palestine Campaign found common cause and empathy in their resistance to the murderous abuse of state and corporate power: in the case of Israel; egregious and genocidal, in the case of Shell, the bending of corrupt governments to its will; from the judicial murder of the Ogoni 9 in Nigeria to, in Ireland, the jailing of the Rossport 5, economic treason through the giveaway of the Corrib field gas by notorious corrupt politicians, the criminalization and bulldozing of dissent through the deployment of Navy gunships, the shoot-to-kill Emergency Response Unit and a security outfit, hand in glove with the Garda, arm-in-arm with an openly fascist paramilitary group and favoured by Fianna Fail for its Ard Fheiseanna over the past few years. read full story / add a comment
