Peace & Justice Project warmly welcomes motion to impose sanctions on Israel and ban passage of US weapons destined for Israel from Irish airspace passing unanimously through senate.

The motion, moved by Senators Frances Black, Lynne Ruane, Alice Mary Higgins and Eileen Flynn, calls on the Irish government to impose sanctions on Israel, enact the Occupied Territories Bill and the Illegal Israeli Settlements Divestment Bill and to prevent US weapons being sent to Israel passing through Irish airspace. The motion also demands the Irish government pushes for an international arms embargo on Israel.

Peace & Justice Project welcomes the passing of this motion through the Irish senate and calls on other global centres of democracy to listen to the overwhelming majority of people they were elected to represent and demand an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
