ULA TDs condemn Eamon Gilmore for his inaction regarding the ongoing detentions of Irish nationals in Israel

Dear Minister, We are writing to you to express our outrage at the continuing detention of 14 Irish citizens in Givon prison.

Dear Minister,

We are writing to you to express our outrage at the continuing detention of 14 Irish citizens in Givon prison.

The 14 crew of the MV Saorise alongside the crew of the Canadian vessel Tahrir where kidnapped by the Israeli navy in international waters and have face ludicrous charges of illegally entering Israel.

If any other country acted in this fashion against Irish citizens the pressure on you to condemn outright such an action would be considerable. However different standards seem to apply to Israel in the world of international diplomacy. Frankly the response of the government has been disgracefully lacking and you personally must take a large share of the responsibility.

Even at this advanced stage we demand that you and press for the immediate release of all those who were kidnapped, condemn the actions of the Israeli state and expel the ambassador for this outrage

Yours sincerely,

Seamus Healy TD

Joe Higgins TD

Clare Daly TD

Richard Boyd Barrett TD

Joan Collins TD

Since then there have been protests almost every day-including a small protest on Christmas Day itself.
