Solidarity with Palestine

From long before the establishment of Glór na Móna as an organisation in 2004, the activists involved have always campaigned and took action in solidarity with Palestine. Due to historical, political, economic and cultural conditions in Ireland, Irish people have always had a connection with the Palestinian struggle for freedom against the colonisation by the foreign Israeli government supported by Western imperialism.

This connection is not only realised by the wretched of the earth but also by the imperialists themselves, as the first military governor of Jerusalem, Ronald Storrs, argued at the time that the new Israeli state ‘would form for England “a little loyal Jewish Ulster” in a sea of hostile arabism.’

Glór na Móna’s solidarity initiatives for Palestine have become all the more necessary since the most recent phase of the Israeli genocide of Palestinians from October 2023 onwards.
