Ireland Israel Alliance to protest 'Occupied Territories' bill
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

The Ireland Israel Alliance (IIA) is planning on protesting Wednesday afternoon against the Seanad's "Occupied Territories" bill.

The bill, passed in late 2018 by Ireland's upper house of legislature, imposes fines and sanctions on those importing products from Israeli settlements. It will not, however, sanction those engaging in trade with Turkish-occupied Cyprus or Chinese-occupied Tibet.

"This populist bill will do nothing to bring Israelis and Palestinians together," said IIA chair Jackie Goodall.
