éirígí Backs Emergency Motion
éirígí have backed an emergency motion that is to be put to Donegal County Council today [Monday] in response to the Israeli attack on the international aid flotilla for Gaza.
The motion, to be proposed by independent councillor Thomas Pringle, reads: “That Donegal County Council condemns the actions of the Israeli navy in attacking the flotilla delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza and calls on the Dublin government to expel the Israeli ambassador in protest.”
Spokesperson for éirígí Tir Chonaill Micheál Cholm MacGiolla Easbuig said: “Action must be taken now in response to the latest Israeli massacre of innocent people. To date, the zionist government has acted with impunity, this situation must come to an end.
“The Israeli ambassador in the Twenty-Six Counties and all the embassy staff should be expelled without delay. Trade with Israel should be suspended and all preferential agreements negotiated by the EU with Israel should be cancelled. It is time to treat the Israeli state like the moral pariah that it is.
“To this end, éirígí welcomes the emergency motion being put before Donegal County Council and calls on all councillors to vote in favour of it. Councils around Ireland should begin passing similar motions. Ireland must take a stand on this issue.”
