The launch of an ‘Irish Call to Boycott Eurovision 2019 in Israel’ Initiated by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC), PalFest Ireland and Trade Union Friends of Palestine (TUFP), with human rights activists, including artist Robert Ballagh and Senator David Norris.

The group believes Israel’s hosting of the Eurovision will be used to “culturally whitewash and ‘pinkwash’ Israel’s record of war crimes and human rights abuses against the Palestinian people”.

Palestinians in Gaza border clashes today

Palestinian officials say at least 41 people have died in the latest round of protests.

A mass attempt by Palestinians to cross the border fence separating Israel from Gaza quickly turned violent, as Israeli soldiers responded with rifle fire.

Monday quickly became the bloodiest single day since a campaign of demonstrations began seven weeks ago, to protest Israel’s economic blockade of Gaza.

At least 1,700 Palestinian demonstrators were also wounded along the border fence with Gaza, the Health Ministry reported, as the mass protests that began on March 30 and that had already left dozens dead erupted again.

The relocation of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv was set for Monday, timed to the 70th anniversary of the formation of Israel — a move that many Israelis have celebrated but that has enraged Palestinians….

Happy drunks with an aversion to horrible conquerors.

Fair enough, in fairness.
