Maximising support in Ireland for the freedom and rights of the Palestinian people

The primary focus of our work is to influence Irish Government and where appropriate, European Union foreign policy in support of the national, democratic and human rights of the Palestinian people. This is carried out through the presentation of reasoned arguments and factual information, substantiated by the requirements of international law and treaties. While some of this work involves direct lobbying and advocacy work with TDs (members of the Dáil/Irish Parliament), senators and MEPs to encourage them to adopt pro-Palestinian positions on an individual and political party basis; the ultimate aim of changing foreign policy underpins all our work.
