A leaflet from the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC), which folds out to a Palestinian flag.

Collected at a 2005 Palestine solidarity demonstration during an Ireland-Israel soccer match.

A leaflet reading: Show the world that the Irish People are

* Opposed to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine
* Support Freedom and Justice for the Palestinian People!

This sheet opens out into a poster of the Palestinian Flag

We are asking Irish football fans to bring this ‘flag’ into the Match and hold it up  at the following times:

* As the Israeli team come onto the field
* Just after the National Anthems have been played
* At the start of each half

The aim is to get as much TV coverage as possible so if a camera focuses on you please show the flag.

Thank You,
Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign
