How on earth is this an appropriate event for the INTO to host ?

Cyp

Because we live in a democracy that allows (certain) free speech.

I've no problem with her talking.
However, I do believe it's also important to have balance at such events.
I suggest they invite the Israeli ambassador to provide a counter-argument.

Free speech is fine

What's the link/relevance to the INTO ? Is this what primary school teachers like to do on a Sunday afternoon ?

Israel is understandably upset: https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-urges-ireland-to-cancel-speech-by-palestinian-terrorist/

Cyp you've lost your way completely. Allowing the mad northern Catholic mad ex-Diplomatic service screwball Eagle lead you by the nose ring is surly the begining of your end. The subject and the speaker are completely appropriate and necessary.
Anything, almost anything, even satanism is more acceptable than Radical Militant Feminism/ Neoliberalism.

A good reason to take out the widow maker.

Zionist Jews of the Neo-Revisionist school (which is politically represented by the likes of Likud and the Jewish Home Party) believe that everything including the truth should be subjugated to their ethno-tribal will to power, they aren't interested in truth as such and are more than happy to lie their heads off.

The Trotskyite equivalent of the Japanese soldier on the Pacific island who continued to fight the Yanks decades after Hiroshima.

The society that came closes to emulating Trotsky's vision of a completely transformed and liquidated society was Cambodia, under Pol Pot.

It might inspire them to revolt against the tyranny of the headmaster, but somehow I doubt it.

Marxists don't do tolerance of rational counter arguments.

It's a public event.
Go along and argue with her.

That would be entertaining. Two crackpots making a fool of themselves at once.

Can we throw in Richard Boyd Barrett for good measure, to make it three fools ?

Is there a law determining where you are permitted free speech or who is permitted to organise such events ??

I'm glad that you realize that the ambassador for the Zionist colonial project is a crack pot.

No

The issue is I don't see the relevance of this to the INTO's mission - why are they letting their prime resource be used for this ?

Love to see her and Coppinger having it out. There would be blood on the floor. Only problem is they would agree on most things, in fact, Khaled would probably find Coppinger too extreme.
