As part off our work we organise regular conferences, speaker tours, public meetings, round tables and other events with visiting speakers who help inform the Irish public, politicians, officials and the media about the situation of the Palestinian people and what needs to be done to defend their fundamental right to self-determination and freedom from the settler-colonial and apartheid regime imposed on them for decades by all Israeli governments, and what Ireland should do in response to this long-running and deepening injustice.
