category armagh | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Tuesday January 06, 2009 16:22author by Free Palestine - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osfnational at yahoo dot ie Report this post to the editors

On Monday 5th of January members of Sinn Féin youth took to Lurgan Town Centre to protest at the conflict currently raging in the middle east. Protesting in the town centre, Ógra Shinn Féin flew the Palestinian flag and carried posters calling for an end to Israeli military action in Gaza. They also distributed over 500 leaflets and engaged with the general public.

Ógra Shinn Féin an Lorgain chairperson Lee Casey stated,

"Ógra Shinn Féin an Lorgain are protesting today to express our anger at the ongoing actions of the state of Israel which in the last ten days have resulted in the deaths of over 500 Palestinians, many of whom are women and children, in Gaza."

"Israeli forces have actively hampered the humanitarian effort in Gaza by attacking civilian targets including a mosque, and other public buildings . Two years ago Hamas was democratically elected in internationally observed elections, yet Israel has continued to place an unjust embargo on Palestine; and up until a few days ago, has prevented medical supplies entering Gaza."

He added,

"We call on the state of Israel to end its genocide in Gaza and would further call on them to allow the humanitarian effort to continue in the hope that there will be no further loss of life in Gaza."

Speak directly to the IDF and tell them what you think about what they're doing!

The Israeli army has spread flyers in the air in Gaza that give a number for Palestinians to call to report on Hamas activities.

Here is the number. Everyone is invited to call it to protest the war on Gaza instead.

+972-2-5839749


From the U.S. you dial:

011-972-2-5839749

YOU CAN ALSO SKYPE IT (+972-2-5839749) !!! I just did it and told him that the IDF is killing children and innocents and that there is only a political solution to the conflict !

THEY SPEAK ARABIC AND ENGLISH !

I encourage others to make the call sooner rather than later because surely they'll change the number once these kinds of calls start coming in.
