Picnic Against Apartheid to show support for Palestinians


A ‘Picnic Against Apartheid’ in support of Palestinians living under Israeli occupation will take place at Eyre Square in Galway city next weekend.

The event, organised by Galway branch of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Amnesty International, will take place from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday, September 10.

Those in attendance will hear testimonials from Palestinians and Irish people who have first-hand experience of the reality of apartheid in the Palestinian Territories and Israel.

People are asked to bring along some local and seasonal produce and remember to leave no trace by cleaning up during and after the event.

They are also invited to sign the European Citizens Initiative (ECI) petition to prevent the EU from trading with illegal settlements in occupied territories.

A Picnic Against Apartheid event will also take place in Donegal this month.
