What we do: Sadaka Campaigns
The Occupied Territories Bill 2018
On 11th July, Seanad Éireann voted on the Occupied Territories Bill 2018. The Bill passed a second reading with 25 Senators voting for the Bill and and 20 senators, mainly Fine Gael, voting against. When enacted, this Bill will ban imports from Israeli settlements established on stolen Palestinian land, a War Crime under international law. With a margin of only five votes we cannot afford to be complacent so we are asking you to lobby Senators to attend and vote on this Bill on 28th November.
