Time to act on Gaza - de Brún

21 February, 2008

MEPs have united to call for an end to the atrocious humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip. Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún was vocal in her support for the European Parliament's resolution which called for the end of the isolation of Palestinians in the strip.

Speaking from Strasbourg Ms de Brún stated:

"Once again MEPs from across the political spectrum and across Europe have united to express their horror at what is happening to the innocents of Gaza. Once again, I expect, Israel will turn a deaf ear and continue its unjustifiable policy of mass collective punishment. Only international pressure can help the people in Gaza which is why this call is so important." ENDS

Note to editor

The resolution signed by MEPs from six political groups will be sent to the government of Israel as well as the Palestinian authorities.
