Members of People Before Profit removed the Israeli flag from a pole in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, today that had been flying in the harbour for a European sailing competition.
In the wake of escalated tensions in Gaza and a ground invasion that took place last night, complaints had been made to the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company asking for its removal.
Councillor Hugh Lewis, who took the flag down, said, “It is completely unacceptable and inappropriate that after hundreds of people have been in contact, demanding that the flag be taken down out of solidarity and respect, it flies high in our town.”
Three thousand people attended a pro-Palestinian march in Dublin last weekend and support for the cause has been growing since the death of over 270 Palestinians in the recent violence.
“The support for Palestine has been overwhelming, the Harbour Company should have responded to the hundreds of calls they received and not have it come to this,” he concluded.

I love you, Ireland! :)

My favorite memory from Ireland:

Getting off the ferry from Wales into Dublin. At the Welcome Centre. My friend Jon and I are introducing ourselves to the attendant.

"Hello, lads, welcome to Dublin. And who are you?"

"Hi, I’m Jon."

"Pleased to meet, Jon. Welcome to Dublin!"

"Hello, I’m Tehseen!"

*puts her hand to her chest*

"Oh my! How brilliant, love! I absolutely adore you name, Tehseen! What an unbelievably beautiful name!"

I have never felt more welcome in the whole of Europe than in Ireland. I heart you so much, Ireland.
