 The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign has just
recieved word that the five Irish prisoners from the MV Rachel Corrie,
which was hijacked yesterday by Israeli forces, are due to arrive in Dublin
airport at 11.20am tomorrow morning. There will be a welcoming committee to
meet them and press conference to follow at 3pm in The Central Hotel,
Exchequer Street, Dulin 2. Included among the five returning are Mairead
Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Ireland and Denis Halliday, former UN
Assistant Secretary General, Ireland
Freda Hughes of the IPSC said, " We are relieved that the prisoners from
the MV Rachel Corrie, but we must remember that they were illegally
kidnapped and taken against their will to Israel."
The boarding by Israeli forces is in defiance of a direct call from the
Irish Government, which had formally requested Israel allow the ship to
reach Gaza. On 1 June, the Irish parliament also passed an all-party motion
condemning Israel's use of military force against civilian aid ships, and
demanding "an end to the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza."
The 1200-ton cargo ship was purchased through a special fund set up by
former Malaysian Prime Minister and Perdana Global Peace Organisation
(PGPO) chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and is owned by The Free Gaza
Movement. Its cargo included hundreds of tons of medical equipment and
cement, as well as 20 tons of paper from the people of Norway, donated to
UN-run schools in Gaza.
