The annual OECD Tourism Committee Conference is being held on October 20-22nd in Jerusalem. An Israeli Minister is claiming the conference legitimises Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem despite UNSC Resolutions declaring the 1982 annexation as "null and void". The British, Spanish and Turkish delegations have already pulled out and the OECD is warning the conference may be cancelled. Tourism Minister Mary Hanafin has failed to say whether she's going or not.
The Irish govt has been silent on this affair. Write to Cowen, Micheal Martin, Mary Hanafin and Paul Murray (Ireland's OECD delegate) to demand an Irish boycott. The BDS Campaign demands a boycott of this Zionist propaganda exercise and Ireland should play its part in it. As a former victim of colonial oppression, Ireland should support Palestine because their cause was ours in times past, while that of the Zionist regime is that of Cromwellian state-terrorism with fascist ethnic-cleansing.Originally Posted by Haaretz
