People before Profit representative, Aisling Hudson stated.

“I hope it can be a regular event until Palestine is a secular state, where people of all faiths and none, can live together in peace and until apartheid no longer scourges people there.”

“In the short term, I want Arklow people to see why there is a genocide happening, how it affects us all, and why our government is not taking the correct stance on this issue… in the face of blatant live-streamed genocide.”

Hudson added, “I hope some people will connect the dots between our migration chaos and imperial wars, ecocide, and genocides by proxy. I hope people who currently think ‘Ireland is full’ will realise the common enemy. The greed for land, property, and resources under a neo liberal economic regime.”

Aisling Hudson has previously worked with Saoirse Don Phalaistine and ISPC.
Aisling Hudson, artist Quentin and activist Sami can be credited for their involvement in the ‘Free Palestine’ mural on the Coral Leisure Centre building in Arklow.
