Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Gerry Adams calls for solidarity with the people of Gaza

28 December, 2008 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has called for solidarity with the people of Gaza in the wake of repeated Israeli bombardment of the region, which has killed at least 270 people and wounded hundreds more.

Sinn Féin has called on Israel to immediately end its attacks on Gaza and for international political pressure to be applied for the Israeli Government to end hostilities.

The Sinn Féin President today said:

"People in Ireland and across the world have been horrified by the events in Gaza, particularly as they occur during this time of the year when the thoughts of millions of people are focused on the Holy Land.

"The cause of peace and stability in the Middle East can only be damaged by this latest outrage.

"I would urge all parties and groups in the region to accept inclusive dialogue and political negotiation as the most effective pathway to peace and for all acts of military aggression to end." ENDS
