Occupied Territories Bill Campaign 19 May 2020

We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these very challenging times.

As you are no doubt aware, Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and the Green Party are currently negotiating to form a new government.

While Fine Gael do not support the “Occupied Territories” Bill, Fianna Fáil included it in their 2020 manifesto for government, and the anti-Israel groups are now lobbying hard to ensure both Fianna Fáil and the Green Party support the passage of the Bill into law.

We are therefore asking you to email or call Fianna Fáil and Green Party TDs as well as your local TDs (including Independents) to let them know that you DO NOT support the immoral, discriminatory and illegal “Occupied Territories” Bill. We have also included Senator Pauline O’Reilly, Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Trace.

Here are the email addresses:

Fianna Fáil: micheal.martin@oir.ie sean.haughey@oir.ie
Green Party: eamon.ryan@oir.ie pauline.oreilly@oir.ie 
Your local TDs (including Independents) please click into the following link for local TD’s email addresses and search by constituency.

Meanwhile, here are some pointers to remind you why the "Occupied Territories" Bill must not be passed into law:

It is very important that the TDs, many of whom are newly elected, see that there is widespread opposition to this Bill in Ireland. Your time in doing this is very much appreciated.

Also, please don’t forget to Become A Member of the Ireland Israel Alliance!
