‘Life in Palestine’ is the theme of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC)’s calendar for 2018, launched in Dublin recently.

 

Each month explores a different aspect of the lives of ordinary Palestinians, and the difficulties and injustices they face living under Israeli occupation.

 

The calendar also includes details on the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement, as well as a timeline of modern Palestinian history.

 

Speaking at the launch, Dublin Lord Mayo Mícheál Mac Donncha said: “The calendar provides a valuable insight into the daily and historical injustices faced by the Palestinian people as they struggle for the freedom, justice, equality and peace that has been so long denied them.”

 

The chair of the IPSC also urged members of the public to support as well as use the calendar to enable them understand the real situation in Palestinian. 

 

“We produce this calendar every year because we wish to convey to the Irish public that every day [they are] in the hearts of my people, whether they live in our homeland, in the disapora or are one of the millions of Palestinians in exile,” said Fatin Al Tamimi. 

 

“We hope that people will use it both as an awareness raising and informational tool, and as a guide to taking action to help the Palestinian people end Israel’s system of apartheid, military occupation and forced exile.”

 

The launch took place in The Oak Room of the Mansion House in Dublin and was witnessed by a number of dignitaries including Jilan Abdalmajid, deputy head of the Palestinian Embassy in Ireland.
