Keith O’Brien, the incoming president of UCC’s Student Union, has called for a boycott of Israeli goods in the wake of Israel’s storming of a flotilla last Monday which resulted in the death of 9 people.
Mr O’Brien said that “this is Apartheid, this is the crisis of our generation. We are the future voters and leaders of the world. We can’t give so much to this movement and this campaign. We are bound only by our dreams and they should be unbound. We must give what we can to this campaign”.
Cork City’s annual LGBT festival also paraded through the town.
