Abandonment of the Occupied Territories Bill ‘truly disappointing’ – Chris Andrews TD

Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay South Chris Andrews has described the abandonment of Fianna Fáil and the Green Party of the Occupied Territories Bill as ‘truly disappointing.’

He said:

“Sadly, both Fianna Fáil and the Green Party – who both supported the Occupied Territories Bill in the previous Dáil and Seanad terms – have abandoned it in negotiations for their Programme for Government.

“By banning goods from Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestine from entering the Irish market, Ireland has the opportunity to be a world leader in the fight against the injustice and apartheid being carried out daily against the Palestinian people.

“It is a sad state of affairs when the rights of Palestinians are regarded as expendable, and the continued violations of international human rights law are to be tolerated at the behest of Fine Gael. This is truly disappointing on the part of both Fianna Fáil and the Green Party.”

Strong performance tonight from Sinn Féin European Candidate for Midlands North West Chris MacManus supporting family farmers, standing up for Ireland's interests in Europe and defending Ireland's neutrality.

Limerick deserves a mayor that will work for all its people and stand up for our communities.

As mayor I will tackle the housing crisis, work to fix the issues at our hospital and ensure our city and county is no longer left behind by this government.
