• Dublin 7 for Palestine: Petition to Boycott Israeli Products
    Concerned residents urgently call for local businesses to boycott Israeli products until Israel complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights and its apartheid system is dismantled. Human Rights Watch report that since October 7th Israel has: Continuously bombarded the densely populated Gaza Strip, killing over 7,000 Palestinians, almost 3,000 of them children, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. Engaged in the collective punishment of Gaza’s population through cutting off food, water, electricity, and fuel. This is a war crime, as is wilfully blocking humanitarian relief from reaching civilians in need. Used white phosphorus, a chemical that ignites when in contact with oxygen, causing horrific and severe burns, on densely populated neighbourhoods. White phosphorus can burn down to the bone and burns to 10% of the human body are often fatal. Displaced 1.2 million Gazans from their homes and have turned entire blocks and even large parts of neighbourhoods to rubble. At the time of writing this petition, 9pm on the 27th of October 2023, internet service has been completely cut off from the Gaza strip and there are reports of a heavy ground sea and air invasion. The death toll is expected to rise significantly. Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a peaceful, effective Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. It asserts that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. It has proven to be the most effective, non-violent approach to demand these rights.

  • Conor Pass for the Irish public
    Generations of people have found inspiration in the breaktaking views and enjoyed the scenic walks across the dramatic landscape. People all over Ireland have a deep emotional connection with the iconic Conor Pass and many of us were shocked to discover that it had been in private ownership all this time. Now, you have a chance to do something extraordinary and leave behind a legacy that will enrich and benefit Ireland for generations to come. The Irish government has said that they are interested in buying but would not be able to do so for such a high cost. Despite lots of public support, procurement rules means that the state cannot offer above the market value for a piece of land. The risk is that an international investor will come along, buy the land, and remove public access. The Irish have a very deep and complicated relationship with land and the public loss of such a special area would be devastating. In order to ensure that the Conor Pass can be enjoyed by everybody, for generations to come, we are asking you to enter negotiations with the state to find a way that the ownership of the Conor Pass passes to the Irish public. We are people from all across Ireland, all ages, all walks of life, all religions and none who have come together to make this request of you. Not many people have the opportunity to leave behind such an incredible gift and we are asking you to do everything in your power to make sure that the people of Ireland become the custodians of the Conor Pass. Thank you

  • Expel the Israeli Ambassador from Ireland NOW!
    Israel is committing war crimes and genocide against the people of Palestine. Thousands of children are dying before our eyes. Families are being wiped out. Lives are being destroyed. Expelling the Israeli Ambassador would communicate a strong message that we, the people of Ireland, do NOT accept genocide and mass destruction. It would give courage to other nations around the world to stand in solidarity and do the same. It would send the message that - no matter how small the nation, our voices will be heard. We can not afford to be quiet today. We need to raise our voices for those who cannot and take a stand. Sign the petition to Expel the Israeli Ambassador NOW!

  • Open Letter to Joe Biden: Ceasefire in Gaza Now!
    You visited Ireland just six months ago to mark peace on our island, the contribution to it of the US government and your own much loved Irish heritage. We know well the imperfections of the peace in Northern Ireland, and how far we still have to go. But the days of constant killings, and unbearable suffering are over here. At times it seemed impossible, but it was done. Now we are watching in horror as the leader of the Israeli government, Benjamin Netanyahu launches a genocidal war on the people of Gaza, who are without food, water, fuel or electricity, having already lived in an apartheid state for decades. As President of the United States of America, you have an unique role to play. We ask you to do all in your power to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and work towards a sustained peace in the region grounded in justice, freedom and equality for all.
