Ireland: Public Advertisement campaign launched to recognize Palestine

 

A Palestine solidarity group in Ireland launched billboard campaign to push for the Irish government to support the recognition of Palestine as a state within the 1967 borders. The movement has been initiated by the Sadaka, the Ireland-Palestine Alliance, and focusing on the use of public advertisements around Dublin to push the recognition of the State of Palestine. The campaign advertised on billboards, buses, bus shelters and train stations The roots of the Israel-Palestine conflict date back to 1917, when the British government, in the now-infamous Balfour Declaration, called for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. In 1948, with the end of the British mandate in Palestine, a new state — Israel — was declared inside historical Palestine. Jewish settler flooded to Palestine from around the world and increasing their occupied area continuously by repression. Around 135 countries have recognized Palestine as a state within the 1967 borders including several that are now EU members and Sweden becoming the most recent country to do so in November last year..
