Ó Snodaigh helps launch Irish Ship to Gaza Campaign

30 August, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD

Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh today helped launch a campaign to raise money for an Irish boat to take part in the next humanitarian aid flotilla to Gaza.

Speaking at the launch of the Irish Ship to Gaza Campaign in Dublin today Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

“We owe it to those that were killed by the Israeli State on the last freedom flotilla and to all those Palestinian people suffering at the hands of Israel in the Gaza Strip to ensure that a second flotilla sets out at the earliest possible time.

“We aim to bring much needed humanitarian aid to the Gaze strip and to keep up the pressure on Israel to force them to lift their inhumane siege of Gaza.

“I and my party fully support the campaign to ensure that there is an Irish ship on the next freedom flotilla.

“Irish people throughout the years have continually stood tall for oppressed peoples all over the world and I would ask the general public to once again consider helping out by getting involved or donating to this project.” ENDS
