Sinn Féin Assembly Team to hold Gaza solidarity event

8 January, 2009 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin's Assembly Team will hold an event this Monday (12th) at 11:30am on the steps of Stormont to highlight the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Speaking ahead of the event Sinn Féin Chief Whip and North Belfast MLA Carál Ní Chuilín said that this was a 'simple' expression of solidarity with the beleaguered people of Gaza.

Ms Ní Chuilín said,

"Monday's event will bring together the Sinn Fein Assembly Team as well as other groups and organisations, to highlight, in a small way, our solidarity with the people of Gaza.

"Sinn Féin is calling for an immediate end to attacks on all civilians; we are calling for a ceasefire and for urgent aid to be allowed into Gaza.

"What is going on is an international humanitarian crisis and we hope that this further, all be it a simple expression of our solidarity and our hope to see the horrific events over, will add to the countless international calls for inclusive negotiations." CRÍOCH
