Mairead Maguire Nobel Peace Laureate speaking at the rally outside the USA Embassy in Belfast said:
We call on the Irish government to create A Genocide Convention
(This convention would call for the immediate halt of the Israeli genocidal attack on Palestinians)
The governments of the USA, UK, Germany and much of Europe are wholly complicit in the horrific assault on the people of Gaza.
Not only are these governments refusing to meet their treaty obligations to ensure respect for the Geneva Convention. These governments are in fact Actively arming the assault by providing economic and intelligence support. These governments are giving political and Diplomat cover for Israel’s war crimes.
Palestinians in Gaza are being demonised and suffering ethnic cleansing and collective punishment. This is a classic genocide and the Israeli government has to be held accountable.
As the USA uses its veto to block action at the UN Security Council another legal way must be found. This means a state can invoke genocide convention at Un. States such Ireland, Brazil South Africa, Colombia, Venezuelan, Iran, Spain all could help.
Please save the thousands of lives of Palestinians being cruelly slaughtered in an immoral and illegal war by Israel.
