Derry New Years Eve Solidarity with Palestine

Activists across the country today held a 'National New Year's Eve vigil' around Ireland in a gesture of solidarity with the people of Palestine in their ongoing quest for freedom and justice.
Community and non-aligned activists, trade unions, political groups, antifascists, anarchists and members of the IWW took part in this national day of action in an effort to highlight recent developments in Palestine and to encourage further solidarity actions to be taken as we enter yet another year of terror and occupation.
In Dublin activists gathered on Ha’penny Bridge, in Galway a solidarity action was held at Eyre Square, in Sligo activists gathered on Hyde Bridge, while in Limerick activists gathered on Thomas Street and Derry activists too gathered on the city's Peace Bridge holding banners and Palestinan flags to highlight the continued oppression of the people of Palestine.
