12 January, 2009 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

The Sinn Féin Team in the Assembly today held a solidarity event for the people of Gaza on the steps of Stormont.

Speaking after the event, Sinn Féin Chief Whip Carál Ní Chuilín said,

"Today's event was a small symbol of our solidarity with the besieged people in Gaza. As we return to the Assembly today, it is of vital importance that the calls for a ceasefire and for inclusive negotiations are echoed here at Stormont.

"Sinn Féin has submitted a no day named motion on the issue of Gaza and we will continue to highlight the terrible events taking place there, as well as continuing to call for an end to the war and peace for all those people suffering at present." CRÍOCH
