Video: Stolen Land
Waleed Abohanya was farming his land when the soldiers came. There were dozens of them, supported by dozens more policemen. They had a simple mission: they were there to take Waleed’s land.
“My strength comes from my belief in human rights and in justice. Everybody should have justice. Justice means full equality. It means everybody being equal to everybody else. There is no justice here.” - Waleed Abohanya
What needs to happen?
Irish and UK Governments should ban settlement produce and push within the EU for the introduction of an EU-wide trade ban.
Retailers operating in Ireland should stop stocking goods from Israeli settlements.
The Irish and UK governments can play a positive role in bringing peace to Israel and Palestine. Make your voice heard.
