Leila Khaled Speaks Successfully in Dublin

Inspiring scenes in Dublin today as international revolutionary icon Leila Khaled, a leading figure of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, addressed a meeting to mark the #Nakba70 and in solidarity with the #GreatMarchofReturn

The meeting, jointly organised by Anti Imperialist Action and Lasair Dhearg, took place in the teachers club despite attempt of the Zionist Entity and their supporters to prevent the meeting going ahead. The holding of this meeting in itself is a small victory over the forces of Zionism and Imperialism.

Speaking for over an hour Khaled gave a detailed insight into the current situation in Palestine, outlined that the only path open to the people of Palestine is the path of resistance and highlighted the importance of international solidarity events such as the meeting and the campaign for BDS. Khaled payed special tribute to the links and common bonds of struggle to between the Irish and Palestinian People.

Khaled also answered a steady stream of questions from the audience at the well attended meeting on a range of issues facing the Palestine Struggle today.

The event ended with the meeting expressing solidarity with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, with the Palestinian masses and with the struggle for National Liberation and Socialism in Palestine.

Anti Imperialist Action and Lasair Dhearg Salute our comrades in the PFLP and pledge to do all we can to support the Palestinian Struggle.
