THE PROGRAMME FOR GOVERNMENT


While it is deeply disappointing to see that the Occupied Territories Bill is not included within the Programme for Government, we are more determined than ever to continue our campaign to ensure that Ireland bans the importation of illegal settlement goods. As Israel continues to consolidate its programme of annexation, the urgency of measures such as the Occupied Territories Bill increases with each day that passes.

FIANNA FAIL AND GREEN PARTY CAVE IN ON OTB

Fianna Fáil and the Green Party both included the approval of the Occupied Territories Bill in their party manifestos for the February election. Both voted unwaveringly in favour of the Bill in the seven previous votes in the Seanad and Dáil. What’s more, it was Fianna Fáil who introduced the Bill into the Dáil on 11th January 2019 seeking its approval. So what happened? How and why did these two parties abandon such an important piece of legislation at the 11th hour?

TELL THE PARTIES WHAT YOU THINK

Party membership will be discussing the Programme for Government intensely in the coming days. We think it is very important that you express your views to both public representatives and individual members of the different parties. This is particularly important in cases where you have been in contact previously and have received assurance that the party would support the Bill and follow though on their party’s manifesto.

PARTY MEMBERS TO QUESTION LEADERSHIP

The abandonment of the Bill by Fianna Fáil and the Green Party is an issue which needs to be addressed and discussed. Members need to question their leadership’s reversal of written pre-election commitments. Voters supported these parties on the basis of the manifesto, and such a radical change of policy at this early stage does not augur well for the future of their participation in a coalition government.

Meanwhile, Fine Gael continues to take an undemocratic position. Despite a clear majority of deputies (and those who voted for them) in favour of its enactment, Fine Gael insists on blocking the Bill at every turn. In a coalition of 3 parties where two of them were committed to the Bill, they once again, overrode the policies of the other parties. Any and all expressions of rejection of this position are worth expressing at this stage. While the Fine Gael leadership continues to hold this position, their membership and public representatives should realise it will cost them votes.

INFORMATION YOU MAY FIND USEFUL

To read up further on the issues, and for use when contacting the different parties, we have gathered some information sources you may find interesting and useful:

1. The Programme for Government. Reference to Palestine is on pg.112.

2. Briefing prepared by SADAKA legal officer refuting the arguments laid out in the Opinion of the Attorney General

3. An article published in the Irish Times on 13th June discussing the Attorney General's opinion.

4. Declaration signed by over 60 Special Rapporteurs and independent human rights experts and published by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the UN. (16 June 2020)

THE BILL GOES FORWARD

Despite the fact that the Bill has not been mentioned by name in the Programme for Government, this is merely a setback which we must negotiate. In reference to proposals of annexation by Israel, the Programme clearly states that “the government would regard any such moves as a breach of international law and would consider an appropriate response to them at both national and international level”. Palestinian leaders, international experts and six major political parties here in Ireland are all agreed that the Occupied Territories Bill is a small, but significant response, in which Ireland can apply international law in the face of the illegal annexation of Palestinian territories by Israel.

It is indeed very disappointing that the Bill is not included within the Programme for Government. But, this does not mean an end to it. It will be back in the Dáil and ultimately, this Bill will succeed. It will succeed because not only is it the right thing to do, but it has the overwhelming support of the Irish people, the political parties and a highly significant majority within the Oireachtas.

Together we will find a way to make that happen.
