Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has today briefed representatives of Palestinian support groups in Ireland on work being carried out in the European Parliament in support the people of Gaza.
Speaking today Ms Anderson said:
“As chair of the Palestinian Delegation at the European Parliament I have briefed representatives of Irish Palestinian support groups on work being carried out in the European Parliament to put pressure on Israel to end the occupation and continued slaughter of Palestinians.
“It is essential that Europe is seen to be delivering and working in support of local people and groups and information sharing such as this briefing is key to that.
“This is ahead of a delegation, which will be led by myself traveling to Palestine next week with the hope of seeing at first hand the devastation in Gaza.
“I welcome the latest ceasefire announcement regarding Gaza and hopefully it will lead to a resolution and the end of the continued onslaught on the Palestinian people.” END
