2. March against Mass Murder: Assemble 5pm Talbot St memorial to Dublin/Monaghan bomb victims to march to GPO. Main Speaker: Mr George Galloway. Topic: Mass Murder from Dublin, Monaghan and Derry’s Bloody Sunday (30/1/72) to Palestine, Yemen, Libya and Syria. The regime forces which have never been held to account for the former are now committing worse crimes in the latter as the Irish, like citizens in Hitler’s Reich, looks silently on.
1a A Taste of Hell: These horrific war crimes are only a tiny sample of what the people of Syria and contiguous countries have been put through. Deputies Clare Daly and Mick Wallace are to be commended for being lone Parliamentary voices speaking up for these victims and Foreign Minister Simon Coveney is to be commended for twice departing from his prepared script and telling them that he and his government would assist in freeing those 54 children “as far as is practicable”.
2a. Yemen is Naked Genocide: George Galloway is to be commended for agreeing to walk from the site of one war crime (Talbot St) to that of another (Sackville Place) on behalf of those who are being systematically exterminated in Arab Lands as part of the business models of EU arms and related industries.
Cowardice, Inhumanity and Rapine: Were explicitly condemned by James Connolly and Patrick Pearse in the 1916 Proclamation and, implicitly, by Roger Casement who exposed European barbarities in the Congo. These ongoing barbarities are the hallmarks of the “rebels” in Syria and of their allies in Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, Yemen and the Congo where the usual suspects continue their cowardly, inhumane and rapacious trades as before.
Those who march with George Galloway on 31 January are not only on the side of the angels but on the side of the steadfast people of Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and all the people of the Arab Lands who suffer barbarities designed only to enrich the Tony Blairs and other King Leopolds of our day.
