Solidarity event for people of Gaza 21.05.18

AN event is to take place later this week in Greencastle in solidarity with the people of Gaza in Palestine.
The ‘Shore To Shore Solidarity’ initiative was originally set up as a humanitarian response "to the atrocities created by the intensified bombing of Gaza" in the summer of 2014.
The killing of more than 100 people last week in the deadliest day in Gaza since then, has prompted the organisers to hold another local solidarity event to highlight the plight of victims.
"Sadly, the oppression and displacement of the Palestinian people continues apace with further massacres of innocent people being perpetrated in recent times," said an event spokesperson.
'Shore to Shore Solidarity' will take place in Greencastle with music from Spring Tides, Ceolan, High Class Hobos, the Foyle Wailers, Plumdiggedy and many more individual singers, songwriters, poets and performers. The evening "promises to be one to remember".
"The generous response from everyone we have approached to take part has been so heart-warming, from the venue owners to all of the performers. People have been greatly moved by the terrible on-going plight of innocent Palestinians and are eager to do what they can to help. When asked if they would take part, one young performer replied, ‘I am doing this for the children of Palestine,’" said a spokesperson.
The event will be held in Kealy’s Seafood Bar, Greencastle, on Thursday, May 24, 2018 starting at 7.30pm. Admission is by voluntary donation and all monies raised will be divided equally between The Freedom Theatre in Jenin and Medical Aid for Palestine. For more information please contact: 086 1604080.
