Thursday in Dublin, MK Touma-Sliman To Address Public Meeting

Tomorrow, Thursday, November 15, Communist MK Aida Touma-Sliman (Hadash – Joint List) will address a public gathering in Dublin, Ireland and discuss the recent passage of Israel’s apartheid “Nation-State Law” in the context of the growth of rightwing extremism in Israel’s domestic and foreign policy, and the efforts to resist this trend.

Last July, the Knesset passed the “Nation-State Law,” racist legislation designed to officially assign second-class status to Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel and to deny their claim to their homeland. This law has been widely decried as the enshrining of apartheid inside the State of Israel, where previously authorities had sought to hide official discrimination behind a liberal veneer.

The public meeting will take place at 7:30pm at Wynn’s Hotel, 35-39 Abbey Street Lower, Dublin 1. It is being hosted by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign, with the assistance of the Global Campaign against US/NATO Military Bases.
