Join us in solidarity with Palestinians who face oppression under apartheid.

We are bringing Picnics Against Apartheid across Ireland to bring a community together to call on the Irish Government, and others, to recognise what is happening as Apartheid under international law.

Why a picnic? We want to act in solidarity with Palestinians who are forced out of public spaces by Israeli authorities – just because of who they are – often for something as simple as having a picnic. This is just one example of how Israel enforces a system of oppression and domination against the Palestinian people, and it must end now.

We are inviting the public and our elected representatives to join us to hear our calls and learn more over food, music and speeches. Bring your lunch and a blanket! The bigger the crowd, the bigger the statement that we in Ireland are calling for an end to this crime against humanity that is apartheid.

National Picnics Against Apartheid Events

Amnesty International Ireland has launched Picnics Against Apartheid in solidarity with Palestinians. We’re asking you to join in and take up space this summer in public parks and green areas across the country as a visible demonstration of solidarity.

If you’d like to organise or attend another Picnic Against Apartheid in your local area, please fill out the form. We will be in touch with information and resources to help you get started.

This event is part of Amnesty International’s campaign calling for Israel to end the international wrong, and crime, of apartheid, against Palestinians, in coalition with the Irish Anti-Apartheid Campaign for Palestine. Find out more here about Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians: A Cruel System of Domination and a Crime Against Humanity.
