One of the main areas covered by Redline is the struggle for Palestinian liberation and, within that context, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. A number of us at Redline were engaged a few years ago in a campaign to raise funds for the PFLP. A campaign which, sadly, no longer exists. However, it managed to raise several thousand dollars in its only too-brief existence.
The Palestine/PFLP connection also fits neatly with this blog because of the solidarity between éirígí and the PFLP. Indeed, it was an earlier incarnation of Redline which was able to put éirígí in touch with Leila Khaled and the PFLP, although Leila has been banned from entering the twenty-six counties (ironically, she has been able to enter Britain – another case of the neocolonial lackeys sometimes being worse than their imperialist masters!).
Anyway, this is a plug for the Redline coverage of Palestinian and PFLP material, as I keep this site for specifically Irish material.
Below are a few pieces:

Because this blog is dedicated to Irish politics, I don’t post stuff on other issues. However I have long been involved in Palestine solidarity activity and the other blog I’m involved in, Redline, has a lot of stuff on Palestine. Because of the close identification of the causes of Irish and Palestinian liberation, I thought readers might be interested in some of the Palestinian pieces. So here are some links to Palestine stuff on Redline. This is just a small selection of the 45 or so articles we have up on that section of the blog:
Following a series of meetings both inside and outside Palestine, the central committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine released a statement on May 16 on regional and international developments; it can be read over on the Redline site, here.
