Thank you, your email has been sent to Minister Coveney
This is a copy of the email we will send to him on your behalf:
Dear Minister Coveney,
I am calling on the Irish Government, and you as Minister, to build on this defining moment and to move to promptly enact the Occupied Territories Bill.
The Occupied Territories Bill differentiates between Israel and the illegal settlements in the West Bank. According to the European Union, Israeli settlements in the West Bank are “illegal under international law, constitute an obstacle to peace and threaten to make a two-state solution impossible”. Despite denouncing these illegal settlements as “de facto annexation” of Palestinian land, Ireland continues to trade with them. Not only does this make their existence financially viable but this double standard approach threatens our international reputation as a country that values human rights and peacekeeping.
Ireland must uphold the rule of international law and justice, even if it means standing alone at first.
Ultimately, it is solidarity actions – and not only words – that will help the Palestinian people achieve peace, justice, and freedom.
