Rally against the slaughter in Gaza. More information at http://irishantiwar.org:
Half of Gaza’s population of 1.5 million Palestinians are children, dozens of whom have been killed or injured in the past week. Hospitals in Gaza are overflowing with dead and wounded while facing severe shortages of essential medical supplies. Hospitals have no electricity and say their emergency generators are close to collapse. United Nations representatives say the horror unleashed by Israel is “inhuman” and Gaza’s population is “trapped, traumatised and terrorised”.
Close to 600 Palestinians have been killed and nearly 3000 injured. Gazan hospitals report 45% of all victims are women and children with hardly any male fighters being treated for wounds.
