South Africa has filed a case at the International Court of Justice in the Hague, accusing Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. But could Ireland be accused of aiding and abetting genocide by allowing US war planes refuel at Shannon.

Democracy Now! on X: "South Africa has filed a case at the International Court of Justice in the Hague, accusing Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. International law expert Francis Boyle, who has argued successfully at the ICJ, says he believes "South Africa will win an order against Israel."" / X (

Julian Assange Campaign

The UK High Court has confirmed that a public hearing will take place on 20/21 February 2024. The two-day hearing may be the final chance for Julian Assange to prevent his extradition to the United States. Last month PANA sent a letter to Julian Assange and another letter to Rt Hon Home Secretary James Cleverly seeking his release from Belmarsh Prison allowing him to return home for Christmas.

Triple Lock and the Emailing Campaign

Abolishing the requirement for a United Nations mandate, which is what the Government wants to do, would enable Ireland to take part in future EU or NATO military operations that do not have a UN authorisation – operations such the current Ukrainian war, or the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Defending the Triple Lock is now the most urgent task confronting PANA and all thoughtful citizens who value neutrality and Irish independence in foreign policy. We need to lobby our TDs and Senators, please go to our Website, Take Action: Support Neutrality and Oppose the Latest Move Towards NATO!
